China News Service, Beijing, August 20, Beijing (Liu Huan) Recently, a new type of post called "Mama Post" has attracted social attention.

Flexible work, flexible management, and flexible time can really achieve both family care and work?

Why is "Mama Gang" favored?

"Can and Can" "Mama Post"

  It is understood that a "mother post" is a post that implements a flexible working hour system or a flexible remuneration payment system. It is mainly aimed at women raising children or social idle laborers who need flexible work and flexible working methods for taking care of infants and young children.

  Evans is a mother who works in "Mama Gang", a clothing company in Emeishan City, Sichuan Province.

  Every morning at nine o'clock, she sits at the workstation and starts to operate the sewing machine skillfully according to the drawings issued.

One piece after another, after finishing the stitches like water, at 4:30 she can get off work to pick up the two children who are about to leave school.

  Zhu Liangyu, general manager of the company, introduced that this was a specially created position in September last year. The company is engaged in a labor-intensive industry and has a large demand for labor. "The Women's Federation just came to communicate about the employment of women comrades, and we agreed after consultation."

  At present, the company has opened more than 200 positions, and the recruited sewing workers and management personnel account for 70% of the total employment. noticed that the company did not restrict men and women when recruiting "mother posts".

  Zhu Liangyu said that compared with other ordinary employees, the employees of "Mama's Post" leave work earlier and ask for leave flexibly. "If they have a temporary leave to go home, they will be taken over by other 'Mama's Post' employees, which will not affect their work." learned that nationwide, in addition to having fixed working hours like Evans, there are also flexible positions, flexible classes and other methods for this position. The salary is set according to the specific work efficiency and duration.

The relevant person in charge of the publicity and education group of the Zhongshan Women's Federation of Guangdong Province said: "This is to meet the different types of recruitment needs of enterprises, and employees can also choose according to their own conditions."

  Flexible positions allow employees to allocate their own time; flexible positions are divided into several time periods by the company for employees to choose; mobile positions are dedicated to setting up workshops near the community and assigning business orders to the company.

  It is also worth noting that there are new business positions - employees can work directly from home, such as operations, live broadcasts, and design, without having to work.

Previously, the famous "Sister Tanhua" in Henglan Town, Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, consisted of more than 200 treasure mothers who were engaged in flower and tree shopping guides.

  At present, "Mama Post" has been involved in manufacturing, service industries and other fields.

There are two worries about employment and recruitment, and it is difficult for enterprises and employees

  Fan Liqin joined the marketing department of a health care company in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province last year.

At the age of 47, she lives alone with a daughter. She once started a business in her hometown of Dazhou, Sichuan, and also made purchases in a company in Guangdong. The 6-year-old daughter has been taken care of by her grandmother.

  Because the child is born at an advanced age, the child's physique is relatively weak and needs special care.

Later, the child's grandmother returned to her hometown because of something, and Fan Liqin had to resign to take care of her daughter.

  But she has always been worried. She is old and has no job. It is not a long-term solution to take care of the children alone. "My family is in a special situation, and it is really difficult to find a job."

  Until by chance, I came into contact with the current company.

After learning about Fan Liqin's situation, Fang Yun, the director of the company, told her that she could work flexibly, "Sometimes I and other colleagues in the 'mother's post' are too busy, and others help us take care of the children."

  Fang Yun said in an interview with that this is not just to take care of employees, "We are also in great demand for labor now."

  The Women's Federation of Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province also found in a work survey last year that enterprises have labor needs but it is difficult to recruit people.

  In this regard, Xiang Jing, an associate researcher at the Institute of Population and Labor Economics of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said that there are many uncertainties in the production of enterprises under the epidemic, and the cost of full work must be considered. "At the same time, there are objective needs in the labor market, especially for women. Still stronger."

  She believes that now that companies have higher requirements for flexibility in employment, the establishment of "mother posts" is an appropriate production method. ."

More high-skilled jobs should be created

  At present, Sichuan, Guangdong, Jiangxi and other provinces and cities have successively launched the opening of "mother posts".

  The People's Government of Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province issued the "Several Measures on Vigorously Implementing the New Employment Model of "Mama Post" in July this year, supporting and encouraging employers such as industrial manufacturing, domestic services, retail, banking insurance, and new business platforms to set up special "Mama Post", guide large and medium-sized enterprises to take out some professional technical and management positions for the "Mama Post" setting.

  In addition, for enterprises that set up posts, the municipal government of Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province will also provide subsidies for posts, social insurance, and precision training.

Employers will also enjoy a series of tax breaks. noticed that although the time and management of the "mother post" are flexible, the salary is less than that of ordinary employees. Some employers need "all-round workers" after Bao Ma temporarily asks for leave, and the workload has increased.

  Xiang Jing reminded that we should pay attention to the labor security of the post, increase the scope of labor protection rights and interests, and pay attention to their working environment. "The employment contract cannot be shrunk. At the same time, we should strengthen the continuous observation of these flexible employment groups and make structural adjustments. to create more high-skilled jobs.”

  In order to further promote the "Mama Post", the Women's Federation of Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province also launched the "Mama Post" WeChat mini-program to facilitate job recruitment and employment.

The relevant person in charge said that the next step will be to provide women with more types of employment and entrepreneurial skills training, and to promote companies to add welfare infant care and other services, "to make them feel more at ease when they go to work." (End)
