HR Management, labour market & expatriation in China

After attending the lecture about labour market and expatriation in China during the course I took in Shanghai, I understood that the main problem, like in any other country, is to attract, develop and to retain good local professionals to achieve certain goals at an industrial level.

I felt surprised that there are seven million of university graduates looking for high-quality jobs, despite the educational system implanted in China has already been improved and high quality professional´s demand has increased sharply and there is a tendency to hire less expatriate managers.

It is estimated that in 2012, 40% of Western expatriate workers working in China and multinational companies decreased in comparison to 2007. Although expatriates in China have gone down because of cultural shock, it does not mean that there are no opportunities for them to work there. There is a growing market with new intercultural roles and commercial challenges emerged as a consequence of the difference between different cultural communication such as Chinese and Western people.


In conclusion, there are plenty of opportunities for professionals who manage Chinese language and an international mindset in foreign and local companies in China.
