ACC Trust through its CSR programme DISHA (Skill Development) has successfully placed 100% trainees with 102 job offers at its Chaibasa Cement Works plant,
The centre has achieved this feat in technical trades of “Automotive” and “Electrician” 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 batch comprising 49 girls and 53 tribal boys aged between 18 to 30 years including High School drop outs.
The candidates for the training were selected after extensive consultation with the community and the village heads by factoring all the genuine aspects and relevant criteria specific to the needs of the young boys and girls from this tribal region covering nearby 10 villages.
Mr. Sridhar Balakrishnan, CEO & MD, ACC Limited said, “It is a proud moment for ACC to provide jobs in 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 under such programme 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 the gender stereotype.
With the support of local Community Service Centre they have been registered with Government & Social Security Schemes, like SHRAM Card and Zero Balance Jan Dhan Bank account. The trainees are excited with their great achievement and are eager to start their career with the esteemed organization and work in their dream cities- Bangalore and Ranchi.
