The Central Java Textile and Workplace Industry Center for Industry and Trade has trained 51,800 ready-to-use workers, in an effort to reduce unemployment in the province. There are at least 13 companies, which have become partners of the Textile and Footwear Industry Center. HR and Compliance Manager of PT Pan Pacific Jakarta Semarang Branch, Tri Jaka Pamungkas, said that his party had collaborated with the Textile and Footwear Industry Center since 2012 and recruited quite a number of trainees. This was said when he was met on the sidelines of monitoring prospective workers, recently.

Jaka explained that as a company engaged in the garment industry, his party was quite assisted by the Textile and Footwear Industry Center. This is because the workforce needed already has basic sewing skills and that becomes the first basic working capital.

According to him, the need for prospective workers in his company will be easier to meet and there is no need to provide initial training because they are ready to work.

“They are ready to work, which of course they already have the basic skills for sewing. So they are already equipped with sewing skills, and later in our place it will be managed even more developed. So not only do they have basic knowledge but in the world of work we will push them to level up. We will withdraw according to need," said Jaka.

Meanwhile, the Complaince Manager of PT Mas Arya Indonesia, Giyan Jayasooriya, added that the workforce graduated from the Textile and Footwear Industry Center helped to increase work productivity. Because, graduates already have the basic skills needed by companies.

"We've been working together for the past year. The manpower we need, in this hall, all of them are ready to use,” said Giyan.

Separately, Central Java's Head of Industry and Trade, Arif Sambodo, stated that the Textile and Footwear Industry Center has an important role in reducing unemployment. Because 100 percent of graduates are accepted to work in textile and footwear sector companies.

“We recruit participants directly or through a special SMK exchange. After we get it, we immediately invite business actors," said Arif.
