Global Talent Acquisition

Assist Chinese companies to acquire and manage international talents in their globalization through comprehensive services including talent mapping, recruitment, assessment, and management, as well as overseas talent introduction workstation.

In recent years, China's economy has maintained a steady growth and its development model has become increasingly mature and open. Today, a growing number of Chinese companies with immense business development potential and vitality rank among the global Fortune 500.  With a steady rise in China's investments overseas, more and more Chinese companies are going global, which has spurred an increasing demand for talent overseas. In terms of fields, talent in infrastructure, finance, manufacturing, and internet-related industry are the most sought after. While with respect to job profiles, there is limited availability of senior management executives, marketing executives, project managers, investment and financing experts, and financial managers who can speak Chinese and are local resources. Chineses companies usually fill such openings by hiring expatriates and through local recruitment.

Major TA challenges facing enterprises in their globalization——

More complicated environment: cross nations, cultures, industries, regions... companies need to acquire talents in an entirely new environment;

More changes: changing business strategy results in frequent adjustment to organizational capability and personnel requirement;

Fiercer competition: multinational companies face a direct competition for outstanding talents from established brands worldwide;

More difficult to attract: the means and practice of talent acquisition varies widely in different cultural contexts, and how to effectively recruit, manage and retain quality talents has become the primary issue for Chinese companies going global.

Major concerns of global talents joining Chinese enterprises——

Local talent introduction policy, living cost, habitability, medical resources, education resources, etc. in the city where the prospective employer is based;

Corporate culture, financial strength, business prospects... of the prospective employer;

Payment of social insurance, home leaves, and public security situation of the local city as an expatriate overseas;

Cultural differences, risks brought by changing international relations of joining the overseas branch of Chinese company.
