Historically, following the opening of China as a market economy, foreign companies were allowed to operate in China but couldn’t employ Chinese workers directly. Nowadays, international companies coming to China might still encounter challenges when it comes to the local labor law and fast-changing procedures. Also when hiring staff (local or expatriate) it is very important to have a good understanding of the local and international conditions and implications.
In this HR session, representatives of FESCO Adecco and Moore Stephens will share their insights into the matters of workforce management and the considerations you need to take into account when hiring locals or expats. They will advice you how you can avoid common pitfalls and what considerations are often overlooked.
