Foxconn Ramps Up Recruitment Efforts for World's Largest iPhone Factory
Apple supplier offers bonuses and referral rewards to attract new workers ahead of iPhone 15 launch.
Apple supplier Foxconn is ramping up efforts to recruit more workers for its plant in Zhengzhou, China, ahead of the launch of the iPhone 15.
The company is offering bonuses of up to 3,000 yuan ($424) to new workers who stay on the job for at least 90 days. Current employees who successfully refer a friend or family member will also receive a similar bonus.
The Zhengzhou plant is the world's largest iPhone factory and it employs more than 200,000 people. The plant has been hit by a number of challenges in recent months, including Covid-19 restrictions and worker protests.
In November, Apple warned that shipments of the iPhone 14 would be delayed due to the Covid-19 lockdown in Zhengzhou. Foxconn is hoping that these new bonuses and referral initiatives will help to attract more workers and ensure that the iPhone 15 is launched on time. However, the company has faced criticism in the past for its treatment of workers; in 2019, Apple was forced to investigate allegations of forced labour at factories as well.
