HCM CITY — Enterprises in HCM City are expected to need to recruit an additional 19,000 employees next month, an increase of 7,299 compared to January, according to the city's Centre for Human Resource Forecast and Labour Information.
Experts forecast that the city's economy will grow strongly in the beginning of the year, Trần Anh Tuấn, the centre's deputy head, said.
Of the 19,000 employees, 30 per cent are for part-time and seasonal jobs. Most of these will be in marketing, tourism-hospitality, event organisation, industrial hygiene-civil engineering, landscape design-bonsai care, market research and other fields.
In January, the city People's Committee told agencies and enterprises to give bonuses and other allowances for employees before the Lunar New Year holiday.
This was done to ensure that employees return to their jobs after the Tết holiday.
Unlike previous years, the number of people who will not return to their jobs after Tết is forecast to be between 3 per cent and 4 per cent of the total workforce, according to the centre. — VNS
