Description

CCR CSR and the CSR Centre at the Embassy of Sweden in Beijing invite you to the launch of our new joint study “2018 Snapshot Study of Young Workers in China’s Manufacturing Sector”on November 30 in Shenzhen, followed by a buffet lunch at the Four Points by Sheraton.

Understanding young workers aged 16-25 in China’s manufacturing sector is as timely as it is pressing: China’s manufacturing sector is struggling with an aging workforce and labor shortages. At the same time, brands/buyers and suppliers are reluctant to hire juvenile workers (16-17 year olds) and struggle to attract young workers under 25.

The study’s goal was to develop better understanding of:

1) The demographic changes of young workers in export manufacturing and the possible implications of the recent trends

2) The challenges in young/juvenile worker management and what should be done to ease those challenges

3) How the situation and the conditions of young workers at work might be associated with their overall physical and mental health as well as their job satisfaction and retention

4) How factories can become more attractive employers for young workers

The study compiles data from online surveys with 46 suppliers and 27 brands/buyers, on-site worker surveys with 525 young workers (aged 25 or younger), and interviews and focus group discussions with 13 juvenile workers under the age of 18.

During the launch of the study on November 30, we will present the key findings from the study, and delve into the topic of young worker management deeper via a panel discussion and a presentation about young worker management practices. The event will bring together suppliers and brand representatives, and will provide ample opportunities for networking and asking questions.

We sincerely hope'll join us!
