Nipun HR Solutions – On A Mission to Create ‘Genius’ Screen Printing Manpower

18 October 2022: ‘Nipun’ in Hindi means Genius. The word ‘Genius’ is described as a characteristic of original and exceptional insight in the performance of some art or endeavour that surpasses expectations, sets new standards for future works and establishes better methods of operation.

This is exactly why Nipun HR Solutions is now on a mission to create more ‘genius’ manpower required in the screen printing industry. The company is undertaking a major project to train printing technology students and unemployed youth in rural areas, thereby creating a breed of genius screen printing operators who will be offered job placement in the industry.

To begin with, Nipun HR Solutions has tied up with two premier printing institutes in Maharashtra, viz, Pune Vidyarthi Griha’s College of Engineering & Technology – Department of Printing Technology and K.T.H.M. College’s B.Voc. Printing Technology, Nashik. MoUs have been signed with these colleges by Nipun HR Solutions. The term of the MoU is three years and during this period Nipun HR will initiate monthly developmental activities.

‘Screenovations’ a week of technical sessions on screen printing technology was organized at PVG campus in association with Screen Solutions/Nipun HR Solutions in March 2022 which was attended by over 250 students of printing faculty. The expert lecture series on Printing Technology was held for all 4 days and the focus was on ‘Screen Printing’.

Nadkarni says that the Printing Institutes need to update their screen printing syllabus and revamp the lab with the latest equipment, in line with the advanced technologies that are prevalent in the market.

The Printing Institutes in India have outdated syllabi and practical labs in screen printing. What they teach in screen printing is all about visiting cards, letterhead printing, etc. The students are not exposed to modern screen printing technologies. Hence, students are not attracted to taking up jobs in the screen printing industry. To change the impression of the students, the printing institutes need to change their teaching with 80% practical and 20% theoretical knowledge and follow it up with regular industry visits. This will in turn lure more students to take up jobs in the screen printing sector.

He adds “This is the beginning of a new journey in the printing industry. Once we accomplish our task in Maharashtra, we will have more tie-ups with printing institutes in other states.”

Nadkarni sums up: “We want to be a catalyst between the institutes and the industry by helping the print technology students in getting the placement in our industry.”
