NOTE ON SUCCESS WITH EGMM IN ANDHRA PRADESH
Empower Pragati started operations in Andhra Pradesh in August 2011. We signed MOU with EGMM as a training partner in April, 2011.The training was planned for 9 districts across AP in different domains like BPO K10 & K12, BPO Degree, Debt recovery, Drivers.
We started training around October 2011 and we trained 2562 candidates by the 31st March, 2012. We successfully placed over 1600 candidates in various districts in BPO & different sectors. Of them over 55% were women and 45% were male candidates. Most of them are from SC, ST ,OBC candidates. These candidates were drawn from SHG from various villages in AP. One member from the identified SHG was trained under the RYK program with the intention providing employment to at-least one member in a family from rural below poverty line. The program has been fairly successful with Empower placing many of them in jobs with a starting salary in the range of 5000 -6000 net. Some of them have been placed in other states and cities like Bangalore and Chennai. Some batches were completed in May and hence more placements are in the pipeline for the candidates trained last financial year.
Currently there are 19 districts being covered with a total target of 16500 people including the sectors of BPO non voice and voice, supply chain mgmt, home care nursing and ITeS & Debt recover agents.
