With great pride and happiness, we would like to share that our former student Mr.Balaji received the “Best Employee” award from our Honourable Chief Minister Mr. M.K.Stalin on “World Disability Day”. He is the breadwinner of his family and has been working for Grundfos India for the past 12 years. We wish him all the best for a great future and a fulfilling career at Grundfos.
We would also like to thank Grundfos for creating a wonderful environment where people with different abilities are welcomed and trained to acquire new skills and are given the space to grow to their full potential. Our association with Grundfos is now 12 years old and over the years, 13 of our students have been placed in different capacities.
On 11th December our students participated in a 1km run in aid of Pediatric Cancer treatment as a part of the Chennai Runs event. Even the rains could not dampen their spirit and they turned up on time at the venue and participated actively.
Assessments were held in the second week of December, followed by PRR Meetings at both Centers.
On 20th December, Grundfos Pumps India Pvt. Ltd. hosted our vocational students and staff for a Field visit. Our students were exposed to the safety regulations observed in the shop floor. They interacted with the CEO Mr. George Rajkumar, Plant Manager Mr. Debashis, and other employees of the factory.
We wrapped up this term with Christmas celebrations with all the staff dressed in Red and Green. Arrangements were made in a short span of time amidst assessments and PRR meetings. The decorations were wonderful and the overall atmosphere was charged with much energy and enthusiasm.
