No matter the amount of progress, new hiring and the availability of jobs, India still lags behind when it comes to the quality of the employees in the power sector. To satiate the lack of quality, Tata Power DDL — a power-distribution utility providing electricity in the North Delhi region has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hitachi Energy. As part of this MoU, the two companies will come together, bringing their knowledge and expertise, to train people in the power sector and fill the talent gap. This partnership will help the power sector to grow and provide talented and skilled employees for the industry.
The MoU has been signed between Subir Verma, CHRO, Tata Power DDL and Kondalarao Bavisetti, business head, Power Consulting, Hitachi Energy India.
The training programmes under the partnership will be designed in accordance with new and emerging technologies and best practices for enhancing knowledge competency. It will aim to bridge the gap between theory and practical, imparting industrial training to students in engineering, technology, science and so on, to make them industry ready. “Tata Power-DDL is focussed on nurturing the talent pool in the power and energy industry, by sharing valuable experience and knowledge. This collaboration with Hitachi Energy is a step in the same direction and reflects our intent to help young talent to achieve their potential and the industry to create skilled manpower,” shares Verma.
“Availability of qualified manpower is a major challenge, especially in evolving fields such as power. There is an urgent need to collaborate in areas of engineering, technology and technology management to support the clean energy transition, ensuring the people of India can enjoy reliable and quality power. We are glad to be partnering with Tata Power Delhi Distribution to train and shape future talent,” says Raja Radhakrishnan, HR director, Hitachi Energy India.
