ELL CG Power 19 to 21-04-19

Oneness in Spirit


The prevailing unseen tensions at the CG Power, Ahmednagar
plant, among the shop floor staff and at the management led
Mr. Thomas Abhraham, a consultant for the company to take a

fine initiative of organizing an experience for the staff in the
form of an ELL program with Initiatives of Change. This
program was held from the 19th to 21st of April 2019, at a

scenic and fully equipped training centre of CG Power in
Mulshi, 40kms away from Pune. Total of 39 employees
attended the program, 9 were joined by their spouses. Most
were from the shop floor and some were from the

management. It was facilitated by team consisting of TP
Mukherjee, Prabhakar Vartak, Anup Pawar, Stephania
menezes. We are grateful to the visiting faculty Thomas

Abraham, Datta Dhamnaskar, Sudhir Gogate and Clifford Paul.
