LAHORE: The Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) in collaboration with Rozee.pk launched ‘LCCI Employment Portal’ on Wednesday.
LCCI President Almas Hyder inaugurated the portal along with Chairman and CEO of Rozee.pk Mohsin Rehman. LCCI Vice President Faheem-ur-Rehman Saigal was also present on the occasion.
Mr Hyder said finding good human capital remained one of the biggest challenges for businesses.
The employment portal would greatly help the LCCI members to fill their vacant job positions without spending money on job ads and wasting a lot of time in screening or short-listing relevant job applications, besides allowing to create accounts, post jobs, search desired candidates and mark hires through the platform.
On the occasion, LCCI and Rozee.pk also signed an MoU under which the chamber will control the portal through administrative features and access reports to understand and manage the programme. Rozee.pk will manage day to day technical operations of the portal to ensure smooth running of the exchange.
Rozee.pk will invest in development costs to build the LCCI employment exchange and bear the expenses of hosting, servers, bandwidth and maintenance. LCCI is the first chamber in the country to take such an initiative to curb unemployment.
