Event Overview:
 
Every part of your business boils down to people. Your operations in China are no different. So what are you doing or what have you done to ensure you are set-up for success? What hiring model are you using? Have you complied with China’s extensive labor regulations? Where are you finding your talent? And do you know how to keep them?
 
With an evolving labor market as well as complex labor regulations, there is no question that the recruitment and people side to the business present a number of challenges for companies looking to establish a presence in China. The diversification of media, the increased use of digital and the evolution of networks mean the quest for talent is similarly and increasingly challenging.
 
Join us as we consider some of these topics and questions including specifically:
 
What Chinese labour law considerations do you need to take into account?
What is the best hiring model for your business?
What are the current trends and challenges facing multinational corporations in the labor market?
What are some effective talent attraction strategies to consider?
What strategies do you have in place to both manage and retain this talent?
Do you have a good understanding of reward practice and compensation benefit frameworks?
