The Challenge of Recruiting in China

In the past few years, the Chinese market has undergone remarkable transformations. Once known for little more than expansive manufacturing and e-commerce, China nowadays is increasingly known for its booming energy, finance, insurance, water, agriculture, and luxury goods industries, among other high growth areas. Accordingly, the demand for high performing executives and managers has mounted.

Despite the demand, recruiting top talent in China is not as easy as it might seem. The candidates are certainly out there, but locating and assessing them when there is so much competition among businesses is a real challenge. Companies are fighting to come up with new and exciting ways not only to attract talent in the first place, but to keep it for years to come.

It is not all bad news, though. The Chinese educational sector has improved immensely in recent decades, meaning that Chinese candidates today are among some of the most qualified in the world. Degree and training programs in China rival elite schools in the US, Canada, Australia, and western Europe. Indeed, in addition to producing native talent, China is also experiencing a diversification of it. The number of Chinese students going abroad as part of their education has doubled since 2010, which means that it is now possible to find highly educated Chinese candidates that have international connections and exposure to global business.

These factors alone make China a hotbed of executive and management talent with incredible potential. At Sky Executive, we can help businesses both within and outside of China access this remarkable pool of candidates.
