DOI: 10.25215/0803.067


Indian defence forces comprising of Army, Navy and Air force are the base of our country’s internal and global development. Though their main role is to control external invasion, yet they have to perform various activities/tasks requiring multiple skills by each individual to keep up with latest technologies/combat styles. The main aim of this study is to find the association of two important multi-skilling aspects i.e. frequency of multi-skilling and perception of an individual (multi-skilling for success or Work load sharing) with anxiety in context to defence personnel. The survey is conducted virtually utilizing Google forms containing basic questions on multi-skilling and Beck’s anxiety inventory. The data is collected through random selection from personnel of all the three branches keeping constraint of served service from 8-14 years. The responses received were converted into meaningful data by scoring as per standards of inventory and the associativity is examined using Chi Square and phi coefficient based on online statistics calculation software and verified by SPSS 21.0 version for windows. The results show significant association of both the aspects of multi-skilling with anxiety.
