THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A national summit on human infrastructure development will be held at Technopark on March 17 from 10 am to 5 pm. ‘Thoughts Academy’, a UK-based institution with a branch at Thiruvananthpuram, is organising the event for the placement officers from various educational institutions across the nation.
The organisers, Paraveen Parameswar, Binay Padalkar and Rahul Nair, told a news conference here on Thursday that the event was being organised to give an insight into the Human Resource expectations of the corporate conglomerations about their recruiters. “It will provide the placement officers’ community a means of building professionals networks, sharing best practices and formulating strategies that help build a stronger relationship and mutual understanding about the manpower market and the opportunities ahead,” they said.
The summit will also witness the release of the Report of Corporate Assessment Programme (CAP) of Thoughts Academy which will shed light on the deficiencies and current level of the student fraternity in Kerala. The session in the summit will also discuss the strategies and techniques that could be implemented on the campus to bridge the gap, branding the institute with a ‘Keith Mc Gregor Model’ approach and an insight into the various time-tested tools for human infrastructure advancement, they claimed.
Regional director of NASSCOM K Purshothaman will inaugurate the programme and release the CAP report. There will be sessions on latest learning tools, technical and behavioural skills, session on branding and panel discussion with HR managers.
