AmCham Shanghai’s Human Resources Committee invites you to attend Talent Shift → Joining Chinese Companies on Wednesday, January 24 from 12:00 - 13:30 at the AmCham Shanghai Conference Center.

Over the past several years multinational companies in China have seen an increase in competition for talent from local Chinese companies. In this session we will explore this trend and address the following questions:

  • What are the reasons behind the talent shift?
  • What are the challenges faced by talents in a western company and how does that compare to a Chinese working environment?
  • What do we learn about the Chinese mentality and business environment from these shifts?

Learn more about the shift in global talent and hear from a panel of senior professionals who have made the switch from multinationals to local Chinese companies. The session will be moderated by Alice Wong, Chair of the HR Committee at AmCham Shanghai.
