SURABAYA, September 19, 2023. PT Bank Pembangunan Daerah Jawa Timur Tbk (bankjatim) continues to show its commitment to support the programs of the East Java Provincial Government (Pemprov). One example is through the Job Fair 2023 activity with the tagline Merdeka Berkarir on Tuesday (19/9). Located at the Galaxy Exhibition Center Surabaya, the event was attended by East Java Governor Khofifah Indar Parawansa and bankjatim President Director Busrul Iman.

In a series of Job Fair 2023 events, bankjatim handed over Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) assistance in the form of an ambulance to the East Java Manpower and Transmigration Office (Disnakertrans). The handover was carried out symbolically by bankjatim President Director Busrul Iman to the Head of the East Java Disnakertrans Himawan Estu Bagijo. "This ambulance is used to help facilitate Indonesian Migrant Workers (PMI) from East Java, both those in ill condition and the bodies of PMI who died," said Busrul.

According to him, assistance in the form of 1 unit of ambulance is a form of love and concern for bankjatim to the people of East Java who have given trust to the company in developing business. ""Hopefully bankjatim can continue to make a positive contribution to the country. Therefore, we are ready to collaborate and synergize in various fields for mutual progress, "said Busrul.

In addition to the CSR handover, the occasion also saw the signing of a joint pact to support the Free Career Movement. Several institutions were involved in signing the pact. Including bankjatim. The existence of the Career Freedom Movement is in order to prepare the East Java workforce as the epicenter of economic growth in order to welcome the Golden Indonesia 2045. "Cooperation like this proves the company's strong commitment in encouraging the world of education and supporting government programs in building superior human resources (HR)," Busrul said.

Meanwhile, in her speech, Khofifah said, to accelerate a person to get a job, there must be alignment between the needs of the world of work and the business world with the competencies possessed by the community. "We are grateful that the East Java Open Unemployment Rate (TPT) as of February 2023 was at 4.33 percent, lower than the national rate of 5.45 percent. I hope this figure can continue to fall by aggressively building synergy that is as productive as possible," he explained.

In the Job Fair, the East Java Provincial Government through the East Java Manpower and Transmigration Office also encouraged inclusiveness for workers with disabilities by presenting job vacancies for them. "This is our commitment so that workers with disabilities can get jobs," Khofifah said.

She emphasized that inclusiveness or equality for all the workforce is part of a shared commitment. Not only in the labor sector but also in education, health, and other public service spaces. "So there needs to be equality of treatment among the people of East Java in all sectors, especially for people with disabilities. And no less important is supporting job creators, such as start-up companies that can open more jobs for the community," said the number one person in East Java.
