ACC Trust through its CSR programme DISHA (Skill Development) has successfully placed 100% of trainees with 102 job offers at its Chaibasa Cement Works plant.
The centre has offered ‘automotive’ and ‘electrician’ training with a blend of ‘life skills development’ offered with the highest package of ?1.84 LPA by MNC companies such as Motherson Sumi Systems, Yazaki Motors, Minda Corporation, Bangalore and Grofers, Ranchi. The trainees comprised of 49 girls and 53 tribal boys aged between 18 to 30 years. The candidates for the training were selected after extensive consultation with the community and the village heads.
Mr. Sridhar Balakrishnan, CEO & MD, ACC Limited said, “It is a proud moment for ACC to provide jobs in a remote place with multiple challenges. We have worked diligently towards addressing unemployment, one of the major concerns in the world through ACC Trust’s initiative, DISHA. We will ensure and continue to make more and more youth employable from this region with our collaborative efforts.”
Female participation in these programmes has not been witnessed before. This is the first time girls from this region have moved out of the low productivity agricultural and household sector and have shown interest in technical training, which is definitely a breakthrough in overcoming gender stereotypes. With the support of the local Community Service Centre, trainees have been registered with Government & Social Security Schemes, like SHRAM Card and Zero Balance Jan Dhan Bank account. The trainees are excited about their great achievement and are eager to start their careers with the esteemed organisation and work in their dream cities, Bangalore and Ranchi.
