Companies Lure Workers to Stay with Their Jobs with Incentives
Local enterprises are trying to persuade workers to stay in their positions after the annual post holiday labor shortage that is affecting the service and manufacturing industries. Workers returning from their Spring Festival break were welcomed with work line up from top management.
Some workers were given round trip tickets and subsidies for their children’s education as incentives in hopes to lure workers back to their jobs. Companies also scheduled Lantern Festival party to welcome workers coming back to work. Company managers said that workers should be treat well just as they treat customers.
Last Friday free public job fairs were held at the Labor and employment Building in Futian. Human resources recruiters showed their worries on the lack of laborers, some recruiters said that they received fewer applications than the number of vacancies that were available and the amount of salary offered.
Most said that recruiting workers is hard now but is expected to hit its peak in March to April. Some recruiters think that most jobseekers are just waiting for the right time and opportunity. Some search for jobs without earnest attitude and some say that only a few workers are qualified even when most of the positions are on entry level.
