The Adecco Group Mexico launches an initiative in favor of employment, with the National Employment Service, the main commercial chambers and associations and foundations in the country. 

 

  • A joint program with approximately 22 national chambers and associations, which will offer training and jobs throughout the country
  • Official figures indicate that the total decrease in employment from January to June equaled 921,583 positions 

 

The Adecco Group Mexico announced the launch of the national initiative, #MovilizaciónPorElEmpleo (Mobilization for Employment), a strategic alliance with the main organizations, business associations and foundations in Mexico; to help those whose employment was affected by the health crisis of COVID-19.

The initiative, which is comprised of around 22 business chambers and associations throughout the country, has the purpose of supporting work reintegration, and thereby promote economic reactivation in the various productive activities of Mexican society, through training and jobs, for those who were affected by the contingency. 

“At The Adecco Group Mexico, we think that it is time to join forces and generate actions that not only allow us to return to our daily tasks, within the new normal, but also provide an additional element for the economic reactivation of the country, and thereby benefit millions of people who are in a vulnerable state due to the consequences of this crisis ”, commented Francisco Martinez Domene, Director of The Adecco Group Mexico.

According to figures from the Mexican Institute of Social Security, as a consequence of the effects derived from the health emergency of COVID 19, the Mexican economy has lost more than 900 thousand jobs. In the month of June, 83,311 jobs disappeared; this decrease is added to those of March, April and May. Data from the institute indicate that the decrease in employment from January to June equals 921,583 jobs, of which 73 percent correspond to permanent jobs, when considering the positions created in the first months of the year.

Movilización por el Empleo (Mobilization for Employment)  is an initiative that, through a free online training program, as well as alliances with key players in the economic and productive sectors of the country, seeks to promote the massive reintegration of people into the workforce, inviting companies from essential and non-essential industries to join and share any vacant positions they may have, so that hundreds of people can access these job opportunities. All this through a website that will function as a training platform and a link between companies and people looking for a job opportunity.

“This is a great project for us, which is part of our business and social philosophy, and which is born from Adecco’s experience in the services it renders, its nationwide reach, its extensive candidate database, and its recognition as an industry leader. These elements can help us meet the needs of essential industries, while helping to reintegrate those workers from other non-essential sectors that were affected by Covid-19. It should be noted that this is a purely social initiative, which means that it is not for profit, since we intend for many companies to join and share with millions of people the job opportunities they have, so that we can reintegrate the largest number of people we can”, added Martinez Domene.
