A: The original title: "Where is the labor shortage?"
If a company repeatedly appears to have a “labor shortage”, it indicates that the awareness of “people-oriented” management of this enterprise needs to be strengthened. It also shows that the pace of enterprise transformation and upgrading has not kept pace with the adjustment of local industrial structure.
Over the years, the “labor shortage” seems to be the “aria” that will be “sung” after each Spring Festival. However, there are new words in the "old tune". Today's "labor shortage" has changed from the content to the essence, and has undergone major changes with the economic and social changes.
The emergence of “labor shortage” is related to the transfer of labor-intensive industries to the central and western regions; it is related to the fact that migrant workers seek employment outside of agriculture without “going closer”; it is related to the attraction of agriculture itself; and gradually coordinating with regional economic development. Relevant; also related to China's population changes and the supply and demand of labor. It can be said that the "labor shortage" is a phased phenomenon that must be experienced in economic and social development. To solve this problem requires many efforts from the government, enterprises, vocational training and intermediaries, and it takes a certain amount of time.
However, if a company has a “labor shortage” on a weekly basis, the business operators should really “fright”.
This at least illustrates two problems: one is that the “people-oriented” awareness of business managers needs to be enhanced. Looking at it from another angle, the "labor shortage" is actually a "voting" of the peasants who use their feet. Farmers are reluctant to come to this enterprise, or they still want to go after a while, which at least indicates that this enterprise is not attractive enough to workers, and should be “flustered” for its own labor relations and for the life and working conditions of its employees. If the company is still hiring people with low wages, and is unwilling to provide various insurances for employees and does not care about the welfare of employees, it can only panic for "employment."
Another is that the pace of enterprise transformation and upgrading cannot keep up with the changes in the local labor force. The emergence of “labor shortage” in one place is actually a “warning” for the upgrading of local industrial structure. Labor-intensive companies may not be able to adapt to the "soil" here. As a company, we must closely follow the pace of regional industrial restructuring, start from ourselves, and do a good job of “upgrading”, such as increasing investment in research and development, improving product quality through innovation, improving labor productivity, and reducing “generalization”. Demand. Only in this way can enterprises be freed from the predicament of “labor shortage”. If faced with the “labor shortage” year after year, the company still complains about the difficulty of recruiting workers, the wages are too high, etc., instead of trying to find ways to upgrade the enterprise, then such enterprises are not just “labor shortages”. However, it will take a long time, I am afraid I have to "panic" for my survival.
“Labor shortage” is a common phenomenon in the employment field of migrant workers. There are multiple social and historical reasons behind this phenomenon. To solve the "labor shortage", it requires more efforts and more time. However, the pace of transformation and upgrading of enterprises is not allowed, and cannot wait.
