BEIJING -- Didi Chuxing, China's largest ride-hailing service, is recruiting 1,000 Communist Party members to serve as customer service representatives as it seeks to bolster safety following the alleged murders of two passengers by its drivers this year.

The move is part of a plan to expand the customer service team to 8,000 employees from 5,000 as early as this year. The company said it expects the recruits to serve as "role models" and play a central role in its emergency response efforts.
