RTD – A new dimension in skilling: What Industry Wants to make it success?

As India has become a significant part of global economic powerhouse, it needs to equip its talent with employable skills. Recruit- Train- Deploy Model is an opportunity for the human capital-intensive industry, as it can engage and groom their individuals as per the industrial requirements.

RTD model is a flagship and unique program adopted by our current leadership which merges two different training into one through public-private partnership.

On the other hand, a failure to provide opportunities to the youth aspirants as they enter the national talent market may translate into a ‘demographic disaster’ rather than a dividend.

At S&IB, we are practicing this model ever since our inception in 1985.

Currently, we have a workforce of 20,000, out of which a small percentage are ex-serviceman, but the majority of workforces are recruited from the civil societies those who were groom to successfully fit the different industrial needs. At present, S&IB is serving more than 32 different industries. Along with the basic training, we provide fire drill & evacuation training, first-aid training at our residential training institute in West Bengal free of cost. For other states, we collaborate with the local training institute affiliated to the particular state government.

The Government has launched several schemes over the past few years for skill building and job placement.

I’m delighted to let you know, that S&IB has extended their association towards National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) since 2019. However, as the new dimension of skilling suggests, we have been practicing this idea for more than a decade now.

Furthermore, we are also planning to participate in National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme undertaken by the government of India. An excellent scheme which focusses on training job aspirants in accordance to the industry requirements.

At par with the vision of the company, we have a target of employing 50,000 underprivileged men and women by 2025.

Skills and knowledge development are the driving forces behind the financial growth and community development of any country. Skill building is a powerful tool to empower individuals and improve their social acceptance. It must be complemented by economic growth and employment opportunities to meet the rising aspirations of youth. The challenge lies not only in a huge quantitative expansion of facilities for skill training, but also in raising their quality.

Currently, we have a huge requirement of talents in loss prevention, firefighting, MEP engineering, janitorial services, Information Technology & Communications and so on.

To conclude, Supply is not enough, sometime we are not able to spot the talents due to inadequate interface. However, with the collaboration of different industries and the local authorities, India can then become the global sourcing hub, thus, bridging the gap between the talents and the industry need.
