2nd HR Summit South China


Event Banner

Effective human resources management continues to be a big challenge for foreign companies with operations in China. As China's economy is transitioning towards becoming a "knowledge economy" the needs of employers and employees alike are changing as well. The annual member surveys among the 1,600 German Chamber member companies support this claim: Rising labor costs, flattening productivity and an overall shortage of skilled workers remain the primary concerns of the member companies.

Created to address these pressing concerns "HR Summit South China" has been successfully established in 2017 by the German Chamber of Commerce in China | South & Southwest with the conference partner Direct HR to serve as a yearly HR flagship event not just for German companies in China. Speakers from various industries share their best practices and HR experts exchange ideas.
