Gurugram, March 12, 2024: Emaar India announced “Shram” – a skill development programme for construction workers, tailored specifically for its workforce and in alignment with Emaar India’s commitment & focus on skill upgradation for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Excellence”, says a press release issued by the company. This is part of Emaar India’s 53rd National Safety Week Celebration. 

“Shram” is an 80-hour comprehensive training initiative designed to equip construction workers with essential skills and knowledge vital for excelling in various job roles, encompassing essentials of bar bending & steel fixing, masonry, shuttering and carpentry. This programme will commence at the Urban Oasis project initially, followed by implementation at Emaar Business District in Sector 114, Gurugram.

By empowering our workforce, we can ensure a safer and more productive construction environment, educating them in the various areas of construction processes.” He further stated that this training program will provide digital and financial literacy, developing soft skills and introducing them to safety, health, hygiene and housekeeping.”
