China's central SOEs to unveil recruitment plans targeting migrant workers

Xinhua,March 26, 2020 Adjust font size:

China urged its centrally-administered state-owned enterprises (SOEs) to formulate special recruitment plans targeting migrant workers in poor counties via both online and offline channels, according to a recent circular released by the country's state asset regulator.

Central SOEs should mobilize their units, especially labor-intensive ones, to work out precise recruitment plans and provide more positions for job seekers in counties under the poverty line after surveying their employment demand, said the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) of the State Council.

Approaches such as listing vacancies online and direct recruiting in poor counties should be adopted, while efforts shall be made to optimize the recruitment process and boost hiring efficiency, the SASAC said.

The country will also further enhance support to ensure that newly-hired migrant workers travel to their workplaces while countering the novel coronavirus.
