What makes a company good is what it gives back to its shareholders. What makes a company great is what it gives back to society. At Delta Corp., we have always believed that we owe as much to the society we operate in as we do to our shareholders. This philosophy is deeply ingrained in our organisational DNA, and it is something we take very seriously.
At the same time, we also feel that Corporate Social Responsibility must go beyond supporting a few non-profits or charity-based organisation—it must create opportunities for a better life. At Delta Corp. we strongly believe that we must give back to the state of Goa: going beyond providing employment, we now also want to provide employability.
In line with that thinking, Delta Corp has started work on establishing the Deltin Institute of Learning (DIL) in Goa. What DIL will do is provide local youths, as well as those from elsewhere, with the skills and training to find sustainable employment in the gaming and hospitality industry anywhere in India or overseas.
The Institute will provide job openings for local Goan youth upon successful completion of the training programme. To make sure that Goan residents acquire the necessary skills for the hospitality and gaming industry, DIL will conduct courses in Food & Beverages, Front Office, and Housekeeping departments. Moreover, local students that have completed Class XII will be provided up to 4 months training to impart requisite tools for entry level jobs. This training will be a mix of theory & practicals, and will be rounded off with a course in soft skills. Additionally, DIL will provide an in-depth training programme in gaming.
The details of the programme intake will be announced well before the commencement of each module. To start with, DIL will provide the following services:
Hospitality Training: This will teach accepted candidates the details of F&B service and Accommodation Operations. The 4-month course will include one month of practical training at a Delta group property.
Gaming Training: This course will cover technical knowledge about the gaming industry, combined with training in soft skills. This course will run for 3 months.
