Aims to offer avenues of higher education to its employees
Pune, August 11, 2011: Tata AutoComp Systems Limited
(Tata AutoComp), a leading auto-component conglomerate has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani to run an Engineering course for its employees. The course would be offered to all the employees who are Diploma Engineers and wish to gain a degree in engineering.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. R S Thakur, MD & CEO of Tata AutoComp Systems Limited said, “Tata AutoComp is investing heavily in growing its own talent. We firmly believe that if we can enrich our employees, we would have sown the seeds of building a strong organization.”
Adding to this, Mr. Gajendra Chandel, President Human Resource said, “Tata AutoComp has always been at the forefront of coming up with innovative schemes which offer its employees avenues to enrich their knowledge. Last year we had launched a unique “Earn and Learn scheme” which aimed at providing technical education to 12th pass students, while they could earn a livelihood. We have observed that in many cases, the students wish to pursue higher education, but circumstances force them to take up employment. We are offering our employees avenues by which they can fulfil this need. This MOU is one more step taken in that direction. In the coming future we intend to launch similar schemes, all aimed at offering our diverse workforce avenues to gain higher education.”
The MoU was signed by Mr. R S Thakur and Mr. Prasad, Director of BITS, Pilani. Reflecting on this MoU, Mr. Prasad said, “So far we have been training young students on our campus. This is the first time that we would be training a young and energetic workforce, which has had hands-on work experience. This will be an interesting experience for us too as we would get to validate what we teach in our classrooms. It is a win-win situation for both and I wish many more corporate come forward and emulate this example.”
