Employees feel good when they are certified for their knowledge and skills. Their assessment also paves way for further skilling that leads to better productivity. This is precisely what LSSC is trying to achieve through RPL 4 by implementing the scheme Ambur, Ranipet, Vaniyambadi, Chennai, Kanpur, Agra, Delhi, Haryana and other leather clusters. So far, 80000 employees are enrolled, having made a foray into non-leather and gloves segments. Particularly, in non-leather, around 40000 employees are expected to be certified in the next 3 to 4 months and overall target of 2 lakhs is likely to be completed in 6 months.
RPL 4 Certification is implemented in many job roles such as Helper, Operators, Cutter, Upper Maker and Stitchers under sub-segments of Footwear, Goods and Garments, Finished Leather and Gloves. Cooperation with industry partners has been critical project and LSSC has onboarded Bata, Farida, A V Thomas, Florence, Davar, Mirza Leathers, Tata, Sara Soles and other companies.
