Haier has always been inspired to bring positive change to Pakistan. Unemployment and lack of a skilled workforce are major issues faced by Pakistan economy. In this respect, Haier continues to work with the Pakistan government to create not just more employment opportunities, but also enhance the skills of existing workers.

These technical skills will not only impart technological expertise, they will also create hope for a better tomorrow for thousands of families of skilled workforce across Pakistan.

In the first phase of the program, students will be provided with technical training to build a skillset. The skills gained will then be tested and evaluated. The best performing students will be offered internships at Haier, where they will truly get an opportunity to showcase their learning in the real-world industrial environment. Haier will also be evaluating the progress of these students and the best performers will be offered permanent jobs at Haier.
