Sanya firms face severe shortage of employees in first half of 2011
Statistics from the Sanya Human Resources Department showed that the shortage of recruitment still remained. In the first half of this year, 2,253 different companies have offered a total of 73,580 jobs, but only 34,810 candidates applied for these openings, reports hinews.cn.
A shortage of seasonal workers has been a growing problem for the local tourism industry. It is difficult to recruit people in the hotel industry as receptionists, salespersons and security guards are hard to find.
Experts believe that the hot tourism trend in the first half of this year generated increasing worker demand in the fields of accommodation and restaurants.
In the first half of this year, the number of companies and jobs supply compared with the same period last year were reduced by 245 and 10,880, representing a decrease of 9.8% and 12.8% respectively. Job applications are down by 18.2% and that makes the job vacancy rate high.
