“China’s workforce today is unrecognizable from a generation ago. The ‘Iron Rice Bowl’ has been replaced with onboarding, orientation, probation, internal development, succession planning and exit interviews. Entire industries have appeared, as if overnight – FMCG, luxury, automotive, and aerospace – and employees are expected to provide the highest level of service to complete strangers. The result, as can be imagined, is chaos – as far as human resources is concerned.
‘Managing the Millions: Practical Human Resource Management in China’ combines both statistics and anecdotal evidence to help HR professionals navigate one of the most challenging, and profitable business environments. Get it right, and your Shanghai office will surpass even optimistic projections. Get it wrong, and millions will be lost, seemingly overnight.”
