Shanghai house­keep­ers re­ceive cer­ti­fi­ca­tion

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

Over 40,000 ayi (house­keep­ers) in Shanghai re­ceived of­fi­cial cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to work in their in­dus­try, Laodong Daily re­ported Thurs­day.

The first batch of 13 house­keep­ing in­sti­tu­tions in Huangpu, Xuhui, Yangpu, Jing’an, Pu­tuo, Min­hang dis­tricts and Pudong New Area launched house­keep­ing com­mu­nity ser­vice cer­tifi­cates in an ef­fort to stan­dard­ize and man­age the grow­ing sec­tor.

“Judg­ing from the cur­rent mar­ket sit­u­a­tion, many av­er­age fam­i­lies who hire a house­keeper spend a lot of money,” a man­ager from Shanghai Ji­awang Clean­ing Ser­vice Co said. “But those high fees do not al­ways en­sure a reli­able house­keeper.”

In or­der to help find hon­est and reli­able house­keep­ers, Shanghai launched the new cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gram, which al­lows a fam­ily to quickly and ef­fec­tively ver­ify a house­keeper’s back­ground.

On the back of ev­ery cer­tifi­cate is a QR code. After scan­ning, clients will be able to see the house­keeper’s photo, ID info, com­pany and ser­vice ex­pe­ri­ence.
