HR Management in China

When foreign businesses enter China or expand their operations there, they quickly learn that a number of HR challenges await them. Setbacks are common when they try to adjust their HR management systems to the Chinese context and rapidly changing regulations add complexity to compliance. Differences in culture and aspirations of local talent also challenge foreign businesses in the recruitment, development, and retention of a highly competent workforce.

Join us at HR Management in China where our HR expert will give you a blueprint for HR management success in the country. Discover how you can contextualise HR challenges to get it right from the start and plan for sustainable performance that supports long-term growth.
