Taking cognizance of India’s evolving business landscape and its dynamic social structure, Bosch Limited has developed training programs tailored to address the demands of India’s manufacturing and service industry.
The skilling initiative developed for both industries is different in nature and outcome. The program intended at the manufacturing industry comes from a more long-term, ‘hard-skills’ development perspective, while for the service industry it is more short-term, ‘soft-skills’ oriented.
“The Bosch Vocational Center (BVC) is a prestigious facility that has gained immense repute over the years in the area of vocational training. To build on our expertise in the area of vocational skilling, we expanded the sphere of our influence in the training domain to develop customized programs that are targeted towards making school dropouts employable in the service industry,” commented Soumitra Bhattacharya, MD, Bosch Limited, and President, Bosch Group India.
Adding further he said, “We offer training programs at a scale that outweighs our own professional-cum-industrial requirement. With a combined beneficiary strength of over 11,000, across both programs, Bosch Limited’s skilling initiatives are well attuned to the needs of the industry. We have a job placement rate of over 95 percent and this is a big advantage in today’s volatile business environment. In ways such as these and others, Bosch Limited’s efforts are directed towards enhancing the world’s fastest growing economy’s (India) quality of life.”
