With a population of 1.3 billion, human resources remains China’s most essential resource. China’s Generation Y now makes up 60% of the nation’s workforce. With different expectations and goals, managing Gen Y has created new challenges for China’s HR managers. Over the last two decades double digit growth primarily fuelled by the manufacturing sector enabled China to enjoy success even with moderate levels of leadership capability. However, the shift to a knowledge based economy is changing the face of leadership in China and significantly raising the bar for managers and leaders to achieve success. To compound the challenge, recent single digit growth has sparked adjustments in hiring practices and companies are no longer able to rely on huge pay increases to lure top talent. These changes provide both opportunities and challenges for European SMEs in China.

Join this webinar where HR strategist Elisa Mallis will share the latest developments and trends in: • The biggest HR Challenges in China • The latest attrition and wage data and the impacts • What Chinese Generation Y professionals are really looking for • Latest Talent Sourcing Strategies for SMEs to consider
