Force Motors on Friday said it has tied up with the Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) to recruit and to enhance skill set of the workforce at its dealerships.
A service agreement in this regard was inked between the two entities on Friday, the Pune-based company said in a statement.
“Through this strategic service agreement, we will work with ASDC to further upskill the workforce at all our authorised sales and service outlets,” Force Motors President – Sales, Service and Marketing Ashutosh Khosla noted.
The automotive industry is witnessing advent of host of new technologies, a trend that will continue in the future as well, he added.
“Being a large employer, there will be an increased demand for skilled manpower, which this association will help us meet,” Khosla stated.
ASDC CEO Arindam Lahiri said the tie-up will allow the Council to reach a large number of youth, who can be up-skilled and subsequently gainfully employed at their (Force Motors) dealerships.
The programme will enable all the candidates to develop relevant skills on futuristic vehicles too and become self-reliant, thereby, empowering the youth for a brighter future and at the same time fulfilling the broader vision of Skill India, he added.
