The Social Security Administration Body for Employment, or BPJS Ketenagakerjaan, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, known as Kadin, on Monday (17/10) in a bid to increase worker participation in the social security program.
“The businesses that follow the regulations and subscribe to our services are able to focus on their operations and services, while we handle the employees’ occupational risks,” BPJS Ketenagakerjaan president director Agus Susanto said.
As of the end of June, the agency was serving 19.6 million active members, 15 percent more than in the corresponding period last year.
BPJS Ketenagakerjaan seeks to have 21.9 million active members by the end of 2016. For this reason, it also cooperates with several other organizations, including Indonesia’s largest Muslim organization Nahdlatul Ulama and the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo).
