 Who Should Attend the China HR Management training

The training is designed for HR professionals who work, or are about to work, with employment issues in China – whether concerning Chinese employees or expatriates.

The three main training themes are:

1. The challenge of having the right people

For a foreign investor, finding the right way to manage the local human resources is important when doing business in China, as the most valuable resource of the 21st century is talent. China has a rich human resource pool since its population is the largest in the world, but cultural differences must be considered as western methods do not work in China. Local talent shortage can be an issue for many positions in China. Thus, if done properly, developing and maintaining local talents can give your company a great competitive advantage in the Chinese market.

2. How Chinese Law affects HR management?

Foreign companies in China are finding themselves in courts because employees can sue their employers free of charge. Employment matters in China must be taken seriously to avoid unnecessary risks! A firm understanding of Chinese laws and regulations related to human resources and payroll management is essential for any foreign investors wanting to establish or already running foreign-invested entities in China. Chinese law places significant obligations on employers to remain legally compliant in labor matters, and knowledge of these obligations is crucial for any company hiring people in China.

3. Expatriates in China

When sending expatriate staff to China many issues from visas to the new social insurance contributions for foreigners need attention. According to the new regulation social insurance should be paid on behalfof foreigners working in China, but local policies governing the implementation of the measures have varied considerably. Especially when a foreign company without a presence in China sends expatriate staff on short term contracts to work in the country, special attention needs to be paid to taxation issues and permanent establishment.
