ELGi And NASSCOM Partner To Build Vital Digital Skills

ELGi Equipments, one of India’s leading air-compressor manufacturers, announced its partnership with NASSCOM’s FutureSkills Prime initiative.

Through the partnership, the company aims to commit over one thousand ELGi employees to undertake this programme. The company seeks to equip each employee with foundational digital skills that will enable them to operate in a digital environment. ELGi also looks to inculcate adaptive ways of working that add human value beyond what is being done by automated systems and intelligent machines.

FutureSkills Prime is a skilling programme focused on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, cybersecurity, big data analytics, robotic process automation and more. It is a result of a partnership between the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology – Government of India, NASSCOM and the IT industry.

Dr Jairam Varadaraj, Managing Director, Elgi Equipments Limited, said, "Our purpose is to provide the best experience at each stakeholder touch-point. In our journey towards this purpose, we recognise that emerging digital technologies will be central pillars in providing such an experience.  To enable each employee in our organisation to do this, it is imperative that they have a foundational knowledge of the various digital technologies. We’re committed to ensuring all of our employees are digitally proficient and conversant with digital technologies as we adapt to the future.”

Kirti Seth, CEO, SSC NASSCOM, said, “I wish Elgi’s employees an exciting learning journey to not just build on their technological foundations but unleash a fresh burst of creativity. This digitally ready workforce will be the key to not just exponential growth of their company but contribute to India’s dream of creating a trillion-dollar digital economy.” (MT)
