The annual Best Employer Award ceremony was held in Chengdu, Sichuan province on Dec 15.

Jinan, the capital of East China's Shandong province, was named China's best city for attracting talents in 2023 during the ceremony.

This is the second time that Jinan has achieved this honor. It is the only city in Shandong to receive the title this year.

The selection of cities was done by several professional organizations, including Peking University's Center for Social Research and its National School of Development, as well as recruitment portal Zhaopin.

Besides analyzing the employment data of cities in terms of talent attraction, talent retention rate, and talent vitality, the evaluation also took into consideration policies, regulations, systems, activities, and achievements related to talent attraction and retention in candidate cities.

Jinan's success can be attributed to its continual efforts in diversifying talent attraction platforms and optimizing the environment for talent development. The city is focusing on the construction of a national, provincial, and municipal laboratory system, and is looking to establish new research and development institutions, technology innovation centers, and workstations for academicians and experts.

It is also striving to create a talent-friendly environment and making itself an attractive place for talents to work and live.
