Doing What Leaders Do: STT GDC India’s CSR Initiatives To Upskill The DC Industry

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a sort of self-regulation practised by businesses with the goal of becoming socially responsible. There is no single ‘correct’ way for businesses to engage in CSR – as numerous CSR initiatives aim to benefit the people, the economy, and even the environment. However, in today’s progressive and socially conscious world, employees and customers value working for and spending money with companies that promote CSR.

Simply put, CSR initiatives enable businesses of all sizes to support a constructive influence, allowing the development of trust, raising awareness about a cause, and supporting social transformations.

Amongst the many, one such company that strives to fulfil its duty towards the community and environment is STT GDC India. With several CSR initiatives and green initiatives, they have been quick to recognize the strategic relevance of encouraging business practices resulting in sustainable practices, ecosystems, communities, and society.

The Future of Workforce Relies on The Right Skillsets

Burgeoning technology has revolutionized the work environment. Automation is transforming business models, techniques, assignments, and delivery methods. Workers are already witnessing the transition as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and other digital advancements become more prevalent in the workplace. 

However, roughly 40% of companies fail to recruit and retain employees, owing mostly to a lack of relevant skills, whereas 30% of graduates are working in jobs at which skills they have are not relevant. [1] 

In this framework, effective government policies for workforce inclusion are critical. Therefore, in this regard, the engagement of a diverse group of stakeholders, including employees, businesses, governments, educational establishments, professional organizations, and social partners, can indeed be critical.

In India, by focusing on liberal education and contextually relevant classroom teaching pedagogy, the newly submitted Draft National Education Policy, 2019 aims to bring about substantial change. The 94,000 crore education budget, which is only 4.6 percent of our GDP, and the inefficient execution of on-the-ground education schemes, make it extremely difficult to stay optimistic about its education indicators. This is where the role of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is critical.[2]
