Konica Minolta aligns with Skill India initiative

23 December 2016

As part of its CSR initiatives, Konica Minolta Business Solutions has launched a youth skill development programme (YSDP), for which the company has joined hands with Care Skills Academy in Noida. This academy is an authorised 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 Care Skill Academy. The academy will utilise its expertise in methodology to produce industry specific skilled work force. Twenty candidates will attend the programme that will end in two months. Post this training, ESSCI personnel will examine the candidates and certify them with NSDC certification. YSDP aims 100% job placement for certified candidates and would thus aim to be a great opportunity to have win-win situation for Konica Minolta, partners and the candidates.

According to Konica Minolta, two primary objectives the company aspires to achieve from the initiative are producing industry specific skilled manpower and achieve lower attrition rate which is a major challenge in the industry.

The programme flagged off on 1 December 2016. Konica Minolta will bear the entire cost of the programme, including training, food and accommodation.

“We are committed to make 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 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, Konica Minolta India.

Recently, Konica Minolta also organised a CSR programme focused on child education, child protection, child rights, health & nutrition for underprivileged children in association with CRY foundation in India.
