New Delhi, Oct 30 (IBNS) Genpact Limited (NYSE: G), a global leader in designing, transforming, and running intelligent business operations, announced that it is partnering with the Sector Skills Council and NASSCOM Foundation to jointly create and launch "Reach Higher," a vocational skill-building program to align with the Government of India’s aspiration to train 150 million people by 2022.
This is a strategic part of Genpact’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts to generate sustainable impact through continuous training and employability for the under-served community at large.
Delivered through India’s leading vocational training companies NIIT and Global Talent Track (GTT), the program will equip aspirants with skills in specialized areas such as finance and accounting across multiple industries and customer service for the high tech, banking, and insurance industries.  
This program will also train them in job-related essentials such as English communication, soft skills and computer literacy. It aims to benefit 18-to-30 year-olds and will be driven through both on-campus and off-campus models across multiple cities.
 Announcing the launch at a formal event, Amit Aggarwal, senior vice president and CSR Leader at Genpact said, "This is a pivotal moment in the history of vocational skilling in India. This program will create a talent pipeline for many different companies to easily hire from and also allow the talent pool to find ready access to aspirational jobs – thereby creating a win-win for all and truly generating long-term sustainable impact. This model, if done correctly, can be scaled massively across skills that companies need and want which can contribute significantly to the job creation challenge in India.”
“IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council NASSCOM (SSC NASSCOM) along with the Genpact, NASSCOM Foundation and some of the leading training providers have come together to drive a powerful skill development initiative to create a skills ready workforce for the future. Through this initiative, we intend to leverage the capabilities of our partners to positively impact the ecosystem and create success stories of individuals from across communities in India.” said Dr. Sandhya Chintala, Executive Director, SSC NASSCOM & Vice President, NASSCOM.
Dr. Ganesh Natarajan, Chairman, NASSCOM Foundation added, “This program is a huge leap forward from the general industry practice of providing skills training only to the hired individuals. For the first time, a large corporate in partnership with two skills development companies and our Foundation will be imparting vocational skills to the youth in the underserved communities to make them employment ready. This will also act as a role model for enabling effective use of the CSR funds of tech firms for the benefit of the ever expanding young population of our country. I see a path to Digital India emerging through such initiatives.”
