    Crayfish.io China HR Webinar Series

    By Crayfish


    China has been through some “growing pains” over the past decade in lacking a skilled labour force to meet the evolving needs of a modern business environment, and this issue is not likely to resolve itself quickly.  Some people are also saying that foreign employers are losing their attractiveness for ambitious Chinese professionals. As a British business setting up or expanding in China, where do you find the talent you need to grow your business? What is the best way to employ them?  And how do you keep them productive and loyal? What are the key points you need to be aware in the employment contract?
