ELGi Equipments, one of India's leading air-compressor manufacturers, has partnered with NASSCOM's FutureSkills Prime initiative to equip every employee with a set of foundational digital skills. It will enable them to operate in a digital environment, continually adapt to new ways of working, and add value beyond what can be done by automated systems and intelligent machines.

FutureSkills Prime, a skilling programme focused on emerging technologies, is powered by a partnership between the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the Government of India, NASSCOM, and the IT industry. It focuses on providing a solution to challenges when upskilling people with emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity, Big Data Analytics, Robotic Process Automation, and more. Over one thousand ELGi employees are scheduled to undertake this program. The registered candidates can develop core proficient skills, take aptitude diagnostics tests and acquire SSC NASSCOM certifications and scholarships.

Dr Jairam Varadaraj, MD of Elgi Equipments Limited, said, "Our purpose is to provide the best experience at each stakeholder touch-point and emerging digital technologies will be central pillars in providing it. Be it customers or employees, or investors, digital can substantially and significantly enhance the experience. This has to be architected by our people and the starting point is to imagine the opportunities through the lens of digital technologies. To enable each employee in our organization to do this, it is imperative that they have a foundational knowledge of the various digital technologies. We're committed to ensuring all of our employees are digitally proficient and conversant with digital technologies as we adapt to the future."

According to Kirti Seth, CEO, SSC NASSCOM, the need for each citizen to get equipped with the skills of emerging technologies is of paramount importance to leverage the waves of opportunity rising up through this digital transformation. She adds, "FutureSkills Prime will make individuals from across sectors, and across job roles digitally fluent. The fact that Elgi Equipments, a leading compressor manufacturing company is going to leverage FutureSkills Prime to build the digital quotient of their employees, is a strong signal of how this need cuts across all industries and domains."
