“There is a war of talent. We are collaborating with tech partners and academic institutions, tailor-made training programmes, a nationwide ‘learn and earn’ apprenticeship programme, and a sharp focus on diversity and inclusion, which is enabling us to develop and nurture a capable, future-ready workforce that is fit to excel,” said Sitaram Kandi.
The company has over 57,000 employees across different functions and about 25,000 employees on the shopfloor across its seven plants.
Moreover, the company in partnership with local universities has also created courses for its different manufacturing plants to upskill its workforce. The company revealed that its employees had invested over 3,40,000 hours in specialised training and development.
Moreover, Tata Motors is working on strengthening its workforce and it has also worked on a full-time ‘Apprenticeship Programme’. This program focuses on upskilling its employees.
Additionally, Tata Motors is currently also hiring for various roles. The company has shared the information on LinkedIn.
