LMT Group opens academy in Goa
The facility offers ongoing training and courses for employees of LMT Group
Germany-based LMT Group has recently inaugurated an academy in Goa. The LMT Group Academy is the international training institution of the business group. Following the same model, the group had just opened an academy in Nanjing, China, in 2015.
The foundation of the LMT Group Academy India takes account of the worldwide growing importance of knowledge-based services. The new facility offers ongoing training and courses for employees of the LMT Group in India. Its core mission is to continuously develop technical, functional and managerial capabilities amongst the employees for their holistic development.
“The LMT Group is increasingly becoming a knowledge-oriented company,” said Olaf J Müller, CEO, LMT Group, at the opening ceremony in Goa. “That is why investments in the skills and expertise of our employees are a major part of our strategy for the future. In Goa, we opened the second LMT Group Academy outside Germany. In all three facilities, we provide extensive training and skills development for our employees and customers. This will make us even more reliable and faster.”
Siva Venkatasubramanian, MD, LMT Tools India and member of the LMT Group’s Global Executive Committee, appreciated the decision of the management to start an academy in India at an appropriate time. Together with Sandeep Sood, MD, Fette Compacting India, he emphasised on the critical role of an academy in developing employee’s capabilities to achieve ambitious business objectives.
In addition, Sameer Kulkarni, Deputy GM of Human Resources, LMT Group India, emphasised, “The new academy has a strategic focus aiming at the holistic development of people as individuals, of their performance as a team and of the organisation as a whole.”
