Innovation in employment sector key to adapting to COVID-19

With closure of factories and job losses associated with the COVID-19 crisis, our country is preparing for developing a workforce with skills that will be prized across a range of industries in post-COVID-19 era.
The COVID-19 crisis is having a greater impact on some workers than others. Young people and women are among those at greatest risk of unemployment and poverty.
They generally have less secure, unskilled jobs and are highly represented among workers in industries most affected by the crisis, such as tourism and restaurants.
Rebuilding our economy and workplaces post COVID-19 requires enormous efforts, resources and expertise, and licensed employment agencies are also playing a role in rebuilding our workforce.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are seeing the benefits of working virtually and the post-COVID period will bring job opportunities supported by digitalization. The job hunters will also need good labour market information and job application process online.
Hence, we need to make information on job opportunities and application process for the job seekers more accessible in the post-COVID-19 era.

Rebuilding our economy and workplaces post COVID-19 requires enormous efforts, resources and expertise, and licensed employment agencies are also playing a role in rebuilding our workforce.

In this regard, the employment agencies and regional labour authorities are to work together to seek new services to ensure that individuals tackle on their own the problem of ensuring they have the right skills for getting jobs they deserve.
With the impact felt for years to come, the COVID-19 pandemic, which has triggered one of the worst jobs crises, has brought a real danger for increasing poverty and widening inequalities.
We now need to do everything we can to turn the economic consequences into opportunities in post-COVID-19 period. Reconstructing a better and more resilient labour market is an essential investment in the future and in future generations.
While working to build more inclusive and resilient labour markets, the Union Government have provided social security benefits and health benefits to ensured workers from factories since the outbreak of the pandemic.
The employment agencies which are also playing a part in creating jobs are also obliged to search for innovative ways as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a huge impact on the availability of jobs in post-COVID-19 era.
