Demand for human resources expected to increase from July to October: Mitsui O.S.K. Lines

TAIPEI, Aug. 16 (CNA) According to a survey released by the Ministry of Labor (MOL), the demand for Taiwanese workers is expected to increase by 60,000 between late July and late October, increasing by 2012. This is expected to be the highest growth rate since then. .

MOL said the rise was largely due to economic recovery and growth as the COVID-19 situation improved in Taiwan.

Jasmine Mei, head of the ministry’s statistics department, said rising domestic consumption combined with a recovery in the domestic service sector is encouraging businesses to hire new talent.

By industry, the manufacturing industry is expected to add 29,000 workers, while the electronic parts industry is expected to increase by 6,000 by the end of October. A further 4,000 employees will be hired.

Meanwhile, the accommodation and food and beverage industries are expected to employ an additional 5,000 people by October.

An increase in demand for new workers in the food and beverage sector usually occurs in the third quarter due to the impact of peak season, but is instead expected to occur in the final quarter of the year, Mei said. I’m here.

She explained that this could be because companies cut staff significantly in the second quarter due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in Taiwan, but as the domestic epidemic situation improves, We are looking for more personnel.
