When considering the average age of its employees, the organisation’s average employee age is quite young, ranging from 26 to 28 years old, reflecting India’s demographic dividend. These young individuals work in a variety of sectors, such as mining, geology, forensics, geophysics, engineering, mechatronics, sustainability, and commodities, as a result of Vedanta Aluminium’s vast activities. Additionally, the company has partnered with esteemed colleges to offer more options for training and growth to high-achieving employees.

Through its different skilling programmes, the corporation has effectively taught almost 15,000 kids from its communities, building upon its major efforts in community skill development. Through entrepreneurship training, climate-resilient agriculture, market-relevant vocational skills, and the resurgence of traditional arts and crafts like saura and dhokra, among other things, these programmes are assisting in closing the skills gap between youngsters who lack formal education and those who have some education. Project Panchhi, a recruiting initiative by Vedanta Aluminium, intends to hire 1000 girls from underprivileged rural villages by granting them financial help during their college studies and jobs upon successful completion.

Vedanta Aluminium’s pledges are also in line with important international objectives, specifically the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 1: No Poverty, SDG 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth, and SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities, as well as the ‘Skill India’ vision. The organisation has partnered with prestigious knowledge providers, including NABARD, the National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE), the Skill Development Institute (Bhubaneswar), and other elite establishments, to guarantee that the training initiatives are customised to meet the dynamic demands of the industry and the goals of the younger generation.

The corporation has steadily increased the scope of its vocational skills programmes over time. One such programme is the Vedanta Skill School in Korba, Chhattisgarh, which provides training in a variety of vocations, such as food and beverage, welding, tailoring, hospitality, and beauty. By assisting rural women in becoming prosperous business owners through microfinance, skill development, financial literacy, and market linkage initiatives, the company has also empowered women through the Subhalaxmi Co-operative in Odisha.

Additionally, Vedanta Aluminium provides training in integrated community-based interventions through the Mor Jal Mor Maati programme at BALCO, Korba, and sustainable livelihood projects in Lanjigarh. By encouraging better agricultural techniques, water management, soil conservation, animal husbandry, and other areas, these initiatives hope to increase earnings and encourage young people to return to farming as a viable source of income. Through these initiatives, the business is actively promoting more entrepreneurship, long-term economic growth, and thriving local economies all around the nation.
