Team Of Talents
The Shougang Group has always attached importance to the construction of talent teams and the personal growth platforms of its employees. In 1950, Shougang Staff University was established to train employees in scientific knowledge and professional skills. In 1954, Shougang Technician College was established to recruit students in society and train professional technical workers in iron and steel manufacturing posts. In 1958, Shougang Party School was established to train cadres at all levels.
In the 1970s, Shougang started to build universities: the first branch of the Beijing Iron and Steel Institute was established in 1978, the second branch of the Beijing Iron and Steel Institute was established in 1979, and Shougang University was established in 1985 to recruit students in society and train talents at different levels such as undergraduate degree, college-level and technical secondary school level.
The Iron and Steel Research Institute was established in 1960 for the study of iron and steel smelting technology, and the Shougang Design Institute was established in 1973 for the study of metallurgical infrastructure engineering design. In 1983, it merged with the Beijing Metallurgical Research Institute for the study of alloy smelting technology.
Since 2007, Shougang has comprehensively promoted the implementation and continuous optimization of a “green channel” for the career development of the three talent teams, namely the Operation and Management Series, Professional Technical Management Series and Skilled Operation Series, set up a talent growth ladder, realized the “vertical promotion and horizontal intercommunication” of all kinds of talents, stimulated the entrepreneurial enthusiasm of talent officers and promoted the joint development of talents and enterprises. Relying on the support of a strong talent team, Shougang completed the unprecedented relocation of its large-scale iron and steel plants, realized the structural transformation and optimization of its iron and steel products, and continuously enhanced its core competitiveness.

It continues to carry out the selection and incentive work of the Shougang Science and Technology Awards, builds a technological innovation system with “one institute and multiple centers” as the main body, and accelerates the growth of scientific research and technical talents. It takes the technology center as the platform, sets up joint laboratories in collaboration with universities, research institutes and product users, and forms an open talent training pattern. It builds a “four-in-one” talent development system comprising the talent competence model, testing and evaluation tools, talent inventory and talent development, promotes “one person with one number” online training for talents across the whole Group, and builds a high-quality online learning platform to help all employees to learn and improve their quality.
The Skilled Operation Series builds a team of craftsmen, evaluates and selects “Shougang Craftsmen”, gives one-time rewards and pays craftsman allowances every month, breaks the ceiling of salary and job promotion, and creates an intense atmosphere of respecting high-skilled talents.
