SKILL, attitude development along with regular and unbiased assessment of the employees are necessary for the growth of any organisation, said Dr Vikas Mahatme, MP (Rajya Sabha) while speaking as the chief guest at the 59th Foundation Day of The Dattopant Thengadi National Board for Workers Education and Development which was celebrated as Workers Education Day, on Saturday.

R J Wankhede, Deputy Director (Education) Dattopant Thengadi National Board for Workers Education and Development presided over the function.

Dr Mahatme continued, “Some employees are always ready with excuses whenever they are told to do any work. But there are few who willingly do the work and they are appreciated by all. They get promotions and rewards.” Dr Mahatme gave examples of his two drivers.

R J Wankhede in his address highlighted the role of workers education in the present day scenario and stressed that for the development of any democratic nation, the involvement of workers unions and workers are necessary. “For the socio-economic development of the country, the important aspect of the development is worker. Worker must be educated to take a leading role,” he said.

Since 59 years, the Board is training workers of organised, unorganised and rural areas by imparting them proper training on skills and also giving them knowledge about the happenings in the world. He also noted that the contribution of management, workers’ union, Government and NGOs role was also important in the journey till date.

Milind Tare said, “All people in the industry are workers, some do physical work while others do mental work. The work of the Board is also appreciable as most of the people are reluctant to undergo any kind of training. The Board has been training the workers which is a very tiresome job.” He added that core competence development was the need of the HR training. The HR training must focus on development of ethos, ethics and efficiency for the profitability of the business. He also underscored the need to have proper training for workers as it plays crucial role in their progress graph and inspires family members too.

R Ganeshan noted that HRD is vital for the development of any nation. He also felt that HR and health sectors were not given due importance in the country. “
Amar Wazalwar said, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is a success and working together is a progress.”

He congratulated the Board and its members for reaching the milestone.
With the increase in the number of years for any organisation, its credibility also increases, Wazalwar pointed out. The Board also received blessings of great people like Tai Ruikar, he added.
