More than 300 jobs have been created through these centres over the last quarter.

Kochi, January 5: Highlighting the remarkable services carried out by the government employability centres, Kerala's Labour Minister Shibu Baby John has urged the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to make use of these centres to address their talent needs.

The idea of employability centres is a government initiative to offer candidates from the state a chance to get counselled and trained for jobs. According to the Minister, more than 300 jobs have been created through these centres over the last quarter, The Hindu Business Line reports (Read Full Story). His call to Kerala's SME sector came as he was inaugurating an event titled ‘Talent from Kerala: Aspirations and Opportunities’ organised by Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence (KASE) along with FICCI and TMI Group, a HR service company.

The Minister confirmed the government's commitment to address the talent crunch faced by the industry and said employability centres are effective solutions to meet the expectations of Kerala's talent needs.

KASE has been taking various initiatives like focused and specialized skill development programme as part of the national skill development policy to bridge the industry's skill gap. Rushikesh Humbe, Business Head and VP of TMI, said the group plans to create more than 1,000 placements through each of these employability centres via SME job fairs and weekly job melas.
