HR-Forum China - International Assignments, Recruitment, and related Insights into Chinese Labor Law


German companies who have been operating in China for some time or are currently in the process of entering the Chinese market, regularly face the challenge of how to shape international assignments successfully. There is still a considerable number of German or foreign managers sent to China as expatriates. But more and more also Chinese managers are assigned to a position in Germany.


This event on the one hand focuses on the strategic planning and management of international assignments, and also includes the period back home after the assignment. In addition German companies are constantly recruiting and hiring Chinese (and Western) staff in China. Concerning this topic insights into various current recruitment challenges and useful approaches are given by sharing the experiences of real recruitment cases.


A third important topic of this event will consist of useful information concerning the variety of Chinese Labor Laws and Regulations related to international assignments, recruitment, and on-boarding of new employees in China.
