There are enough orders and not enough staff!

Enterprises in the Pearl River Delta are busy recruiting workers at the beginning of the new year, and they use these tricks

  Before 8 a.m. on the seventh day of the Lunar New Year, the Shunde headquarters of Galanz Group was beating drums and dancing dragons and lions.

  As soon as construction started in the morning, Galanz's major manufacturing units have fully entered into full-load production.

Most of the employees have now returned to work.

At the same time, Galanz has already started the 2022 Chinese New Year recruitment work before the festival, and launched dozens of technician positions for the whole society.

The relevant person in charge of Galanz told the First Financial Reporter that the microwave oven industry technicians are currently in greatest demand, with an estimated demand of 2,100 people.

  According to the statistics of the Guangdong Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security, Guangdong, as the country's largest economic province, a province with a large number of laborers and a large province of migrant workers, more than 8 million migrant workers from other provinces returned to their hometowns for the holiday before the Spring Festival. Return to Guangdong to return to work.

  In the interview, Yicai found that, like Galanz, a number of manufacturing enterprises in the Pearl River Delta have started the Spring Festival recruitment before the festival, and most of the jobs in demand are general workers and technicians. and benefits.

However, in the case of sufficient production orders, most companies still have a shortage of labor.

  Manufacturing companies are busy recruiting workers

  Before the Spring Festival, Nanxing Equipment Co., Ltd. had published a "Recruitment" post, recruiting dozens of positions such as electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, robot welders, CNC lathes, apprentices, and general workers.

  Nanxing Equipment is an equipment provider and an intelligent manufacturing solution provider for home furnishing manufacturing enterprises.

Ms. Liu, deputy manager of the company's human resources department, said in an interview with China Business News that this recruitment is expected to recruit about 100 people, and there is currently a relatively large demand for technicians and engineering technicians.

  "We started work on the tenth day of the first lunar month (February 10), and the current recruitment situation and situation are not very clear. On the whole, due to the impact of the epidemic, the recruitment of the offline talent market is still relatively difficult to carry out, mainly relying on online recruitment. Recruitment and internal introduction." Ms. Liu believes that the difficulty of recruiting this year should be similar to last year.

  Felicity Medical Supplies (Dongguan) Co., Ltd. resumed work and production on February 9, with a total of about 600 employees, and the return rate has reached 85%.

Felicity also has a relatively large employment gap, and the recruitment of general workers is already underway before the Spring Festival holiday.

  In an interview with China Business News, Ms. Wang, the company's human resources administrative manager, said that the current shortage of general workers is about 200 people.

Company recruitment is generally carried out through the introduction of old employees, promotion of recruitment information on social platforms, and offline recruitment in the vicinity of industrial areas.

  Last year, Felicity borrowed more than 100 "shared employees" with the coordination and help of the Dongguan Municipal Government, which once solved the urgent need.

However, this year, "shared employees" have also become in short supply.

Ms. Wang said that "shared employees" is no longer used. At present, after sporadic outbreaks in China, the epidemic can be brought under control quickly, and the production of enterprises can be quickly resumed, so each enterprise is relatively short of labor.

  Faced with the increasingly severe problems of "difficulty in recruiting workers" and "difficulty in stabilizing jobs" in recent years, enterprises have taken countermeasures in terms of improving employee benefits and strengthening the cultivation of internal talent teams.

  Ms. Liu said that on the one hand, it is to increase the incentives for recommendation, and on the other hand, it is to cultivate the reserve talent echelon. For example, technicians will start with student apprentices and general workers, train them, and cultivate them from the inside.

In addition, in the past two years, the government has held a lot of activities for famous enterprises and schools, as well as related talent introduction policies, which are still quite supportive for enterprises.

At present, the return rate of Nanxing Equipment workers has reached 91%, and production has begun to fully resume.

  In order to ensure the return rate of employees, Galanz took various measures to stabilize their posts, including installing central air conditioners in the assembly workshop to improve the working environment, fully supporting air conditioners in the dormitories, further improving the environment of the employees' canteens, and awarding "the old to bring the new" and "new workers help". Support” and other measures as well as internal introduction of reward programs.

In terms of employee training, the incoming first-line technicians will take up their posts after sufficient training, and through the implementation of the "full-staff mechanization" strategy, they will receive technician training from Galanz Business School, and move towards "general workers-key positions-industrial technicians- Engineer" path development.

  Over 70% of the enterprises hold orders for production for more than 1 month

  Behind the manufacturing companies' efforts to recruit workers is the steady growth of production orders and the demand for production expansion and efficiency.

  During the Spring Festival this year, Galanz's sales of household appliances increased by 20% year-on-year.

In terms of foreign trade, Galanz's orders in the first quarter of 2022 increased by more than 30%, and microwave ovens, ovens, refrigerators, dishwashers, etc. grew rapidly. Among them, the shipments of self-owned brands that have been cultivated for many years continued to rise, becoming the main force driving business growth.

  The relevant person in charge of Galanz told the first financial reporter that driven by the domestic sales and foreign trade business, the company's orders are very sufficient at present, and the orders received in the fourth quarter of last year still need to be further digested, which also puts forward a test for the production capacity improvement throughout the year.

In 2022, Galanz will support the production capacity of 150,000 units/day of microwave ovens, and comprehensively promote capital increase and production expansion.

  Nanxing equipment orders are also growing steadily.

Ms. Liu revealed that the target for this year's output value is to increase by 35%. At present, the plan has been made and the production is being promoted according to the plan.

Similarly, Felicity's orders have been placed in April this year, and the current capacity constraints are mainly related to the shortage of manpower.

  According to public reports, the Guangdong Provincial Department of Industry and Information Technology visited the industrial economic operation of key cities and found that from the perspective of enterprise production scheduling, enterprise orders are stable and production arrangements are carried out in an orderly manner.

At present, 70.2% of enterprises can produce orders for more than 1 month, of which 25.2% can produce orders for more than 3 months.

  From the perspective of enterprise expectations, the production and operation of enterprises are generally improving.

During the visit, nearly 90% of the companies expected production and operation to be good after the Spring Festival and in the first quarter, and 89.8% of the companies expected production and operation to be flat or improving after the Spring Festival.

  Guangdong expands the scale of organized labor input

  As enterprises resume work one after another and labor demand continues to increase, Guangdong Province and local cities have made plans to increase labor security.

  On February 9, the D2803 train carrying a total of 600 Guizhou migrant workers departed from Congjiang Station in Guizhou and arrived at Guangzhou South Railway Station at 13:33 on the same day. The prelude of returning to Guangdong and returning to work.

  This is the first batch of special trains back to Guangdong jointly planned by the Guangdong Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security and Guizhou Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security and customized "point-to-point". The passengers on the train are all returning employees who have worked in Guangdong before the festival, from Qiandongnan Prefecture, Guizhou .

Guangdong, Guizhou, and Yunnan human resources and social services departments will also organize two special trains to transport about 1,200 migrant workers to Guangdong to return to work.

  The Guangdong Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security issued a document stating that before the departure of this train, the Guangdong Provincial Human Resources and Social Security Department provided more than 60,000 vacancies to the human resources and social departments of the exporting areas according to the resumption of work and production of key enterprises and projects.

Through the demonstration and guidance of the Human Resources and Social Security Departments of Guangdong, Guizhou and Guangdong and Yunnan provinces, it has now led various localities to organize and arrange more than 2,000 special trains, 10 special trains and 3 charter flights, effectively expanding the scale of organized labor input.

  According to the Guangdong Human Resources and Social Security Department, Guangdong Province has organized 604 online and offline recruitment activities since the Spring Festival, recruiting 11,500 companies, posting 498,000 jobs, and helping 83,000 people achieve employment intentions.

  It is worth mentioning that the recruitment and docking activities within the province and outside the province will be launched at the same time.

It not only intensified the development of labor force in Guangdong Province, deepened the cooperation of human resources with the counterpart cities in the province such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Foshan, Dongguan, etc. The central and western regions with abundant resources are connected, vigorously carry out inter-provincial labor cooperation, and introduce labor from other provinces.

Guangzhou, Foshan, Dongguan, Jiangmen and other cities will start from the near future, depending on the situation of epidemic prevention and control, to organize enterprises to go to the east and west cooperation areas to hold roving job fairs.

  The labor market has also carried out targeted support measures in light of its own industrial development.

A few days ago, the Shenzhen Municipal Bureau of Human Resources and Social Security and the Shenzhen Talent Service Center released a recruitment package to provide a variety of employment services. It is expected to benefit more than 10,000 enterprises and provide more than 100,000 effective jobs.

  As a national trillion-dollar industrial area, Shunde District of Foshan City has a self-evident demand for labor.

From February 12th to 21st, Shunde District plans to hold 10 industry-specific job fairs in a row. Combined with the "4+5" strategic industrial cluster, it will classify industries such as smart home appliances, mechanical equipment, information technology, and modern services, and open them every day.

According to statistics, in the first job fair, there were 2,790 jobs in 55 companies, more than 680 job seekers, and more than 270 people initially achieved employment intentions.
