On August 12, Didi Chuxing announced that it was going to invest 200 million yuan in special funds to launch the “Cheng Yi” employment promotion program, for the purpose of helping more people employed flexibly on the Didi platform.

The program will benefit people affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, people unemployed, people reemployed, people from impoverished families, and people from the travel industry.

Didi Chuxing said that the mode of online car hailing was perfect for flexible employment, which could bring incomes to many people. According to the data, the Didi platform has created more than 10 million flexible employment opportunities for online car-hailing drivers, surrogate drivers, and shared bicycle operation and maintenance personnel.

Besides, there are more than 3000 car leasing companies established thanks to the platform, which creates more than 6 million jobs in the industrial chain.

Currently, the number of orders through Didi’s online car-hailing has exceeded that of the same period of last year. Since the beginning of 2020, Didi has successively launched businesses of errands, freight, and community e-commerce in many cities, aiming to provide more flexible employment opportunities.

Didi also signed an employment cooperation agreement with the Ministry of Veterans Affairs this year, providing more than 15,000 jobs including luxury car drivers and private car drivers for the veterans.
