During the Chinese New Year, many cities were forced to close and traffic between cities was blocked as COVID-19 was raging in China. A large number of people were unable to return to their companies and plenty of enterprises were forced to shut down due to staff not being able to come to work. Meanwhile, numerous people's livelihoods ensuring enterprises and medical supply production enterprises are urgently in need of more employees to increase production capacity to alleviate the shortage of medical supplies and support the basic lives of ordinary people.
What it does
Therefore, we created the “Flex-in” and launched a “shared employee” plan to enable enterprises that are forced to shut down to share employees with enterprises that are urgently in need to reduce the burden on shutdown enterprises and help work resumption of enterprises in urgent need and improve their production capacity. In the meantime, individuals who are out of business can also view the recruitment needs of their cities through our app and find nearby employment quickly. Also, We also actively responded to the Shenzhen Baoan District Government's call for "plan in advance, investigate in advance, and promote work resumption of enterprises in advance" and quickly launched the online recruitment session to exert all our strength to promote online remote contactless interviews.
How I built it
Enterprises can submit the requirements of shared employees or employee recruitment through the "Flex-in". We will help enterprises match and display the unmatched recruitment requirements in the app after review. Job seekers can view the information and specific positions of recruiting enterprises on the platform and apply directly. The information of applicants will be sent to the recruiting company's HR for remote contactless interviews via phone video.
Challenges I ran into
In response to the Shenzhen Baoan District Government's call for "plan in advance, investigate in advance, and promote work resumption of enterprises in advance", we completed the connection of requirements and information release of 90 enterprises within 48 hours.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
After the "Flex-in" was launched, an online recruitment session was opened for nearly 90 enterprises in Shenzhen Baoan District that involved 467 positions and 19,667 people within 48 hours. The number of visitors on the day of the launch exceeded 100,000 and 800 more people were added to the talent pool.
What I learned
When enterprises worrying about recruiting while a large number of people being unemployed, it lacks efficient, intelligent and precise channels between them. We should contribute our strength as Internet-related practitioners.
What's next for Flex-in
We intend to further upgrade the application to aim at the flexible recruitment market, provide more complete and intelligent services, and solve the problems of enterprise recruitment difficulties and employment difficulties of job seekers in order to assist enterprises in work resumption and individuals in finding employment quickly and contribute to economic recovery.
