Tech Mahindra Launches ‘Gift a Career’ Initiative for Upskilling of Youth

Tech Mahindra Ltd. has rolled out ‘Gift A Career’ initiative to upskill the youth across India.


Under this initiative, the company will launch an Individual Social Responsibility (ISR) mobile app to power training in IT (information technology) and digital, conversational English and workplace readiness.


The training will be offered through Tech Mahindra Foundation’s SMART centres and academies across 11 locations in the country. The program will be distributed as SMART+ for persons with disabilities and SMART-T for technical skills and offer training in more than 45 domains. 


People across the age group of 18-30 years with class 10 certification will be eligible for this training program.


‘Gift A Career’ initiative will also offer hiring/placement assistance in the open market, post the completion of the course as a part of the company’s initiatives for greater good.


CP Gurnani, MD & CEO, Tech Mahindra said, “Between balancing lives and livelihood, people are going through difficult times during this pandemic. I firmly believe that there should be a balance between economic growth and the welfare of society and the environment and more so now. Through ‘Gift a Career’ initiative, we aim to extend our support to the youth who have been ousted out of jobs owing to the pandemic. The launch of this initiative is a testimony of our commitment towards being socially responsible, while incorporating an ethical outlook and becoming aware of how our actions are affecting our communities.”


The beneficiaries can be identified and recommended by the employees of Tech Mahindra.
