Konica Minolta Business Solutions has added one more milestone to its list of CSR initiatives and has launched a Youth Skill Development Programme (YSDP), under which the leader in home and enterprise printing segment has joined hands with the Care Skills Academy in Noida to support its north OP Partner to overcome their major challenges of Customer Engineers attrition and scarce skilled manpower in today’s business world. This academy is an authorized training partner of ESSCI (Electronic Sector Skills Council of India) working under the aegis of NSDC (National Skill Development Corporation). 


YSDP is a comprehensive programme led by the Care Skills Academy which will utilize its expertise in methodology to produce industry-specific skilled manpower. Twenty candidates would be attending this programme which will end in two months. Post this training, ESSCI personnel will examine the candidates and certify them with NSDC certification. This sought-after training and certification will provide beginners with the competencies to meet the industry expectation for reliable services and achieve customer’s satisfaction. 


YSDP aims at 100% job placement for certified candidates and would, thus, aim to be a great opportunity to have a win-win situation for Konica Minolta, partners and candidates. 


The company understands the vital importance of skilled manpower in successfully running a business and the initiative aims to reduce the drastic demand supply gap in the country when it comes to productive human resources. 


The cost of the entire programme flagged off from December 1, 2016, including the expenses of training, food and accommodation, will be borne by Konica Minolta. 


“We are committed to making the ambitious “Skill India Initiative’’ a viable success in the country via contributing in producing highly skilled human resources. We are delighted to collaborate with the Care Skills Academy in this regard to ensure a bright and prosperous future of the country’s youths as well as ease the burden of businesses in hunting for suitable talents,’’ said Yuji Nakata, Managing Director of Konica Minolta on the noble initiative. 


Konica Minolta also recently organized a CSR programme focussed on child education, child protection, child rights, health & nutrition for underprivileged children in association with the CRY Foundation in India.
