Mumbai, Maharashtra, INDIA, 07/08/2020 / Story.KISSPR.com /
London based global air logistics provider, FitMyParcel has partnered with Mumbai based consulting edtech Grazing Minds to create opportunities for fresh graduates and train them to be ready for the supply chain industry by giving participants access to working on live cases, thereby improving the employment opportunities. The course will be ‘industry-ready’.
Tony Cawston, the Divisional CEO for Europe Division of Fitmyparcel said that; post Covid there is an urgent need to be more agile, more nimble and more digital. As part of this strategy, we intend to re-look at our growth strategy where INDIA and S.E. Asia can be the key for a more “cost-efficient” workforce. He further stated the challenges faced by them while recruiting for their own/partner staff agencies is a mismatch between industry and employee expectations. Explaining the same, Meghan Kurtz – President (S.E.Asia) for fitmyparcel says, “We don’t want to focus on academic scores while recruiting, but want talented individuals who understand logistics – so it becomes easier for us to orient them to our needs. Fresh graduates and sometimes MBA’s (unless Logistic specialization) are far from the industry needs. This indirectly forces us to hire experienced people for entry level jobs , which creates an imbalance in the eco-system in terms of their salary expectations or what we offer, despite being one of the best paymaster in the industry with industry’s one of the lowest attrition rate”.
Under this partnership Grazing Minds will train graduates on areas like managerial, logistics and supply chain management, through micro programs from three months to one year and make them future ready. FitMyParcel has committed to absorb over 2500 entry level graduates for their “remote back end operations” from INDIA, participating in the #aatmanirbharbharat.
Commenting on the tie-up, Asish Dash, co- founder, Grazing Minds in a statement, said, “In recent years, Logistics has undergone a shift in its role and it’s not sufficient to understand “desi” models or case studies only. Therefore, the supply chain professionals must develop industry-relevant skill sets.”
Under the collaboration, Grazing Minds is an authorized provider of exam and training sessions to prepare participants for the final exam. The duration of training programs are going to be two months (for micro programs) live sessions with certified Supply Chain experts on weekends virtually, mock exams, mock assessments, preparation on sample papers and final examination that will be conducted in collaboration with Fitmyparcel team.
“Digital evolution and the boom in smartphone adoption are redefining the learning patterns of the digital community at large. With these partnerships, we are building an education ecosystem that gives learners the opportunities to thrive in their respective careers and subjects and help solve their challenges with ease. This will also help us attain our target of a billion dollar company by 2023.” said Rohan Varrier, CMO, Fitmyparcel.
