VDMA HR Roundtable 2019

The overall changing business environment along with new expectations towards jobs and work places, provide a new challenge for HR departments in companies all over China. For this upcoming VDMA HR Roundtable, we have two main topics:

Topic 1: Effective Hiring process – Sourcing & Selecting the right people for your company

by Mr. Hsiao J. Chiu from JP International Search Consultants Co., Ltd.

An inefficient hiring process going along with questionable individual judgements often ends up in the hiring of a not qualified or not suitable employee. Most likely this will result in an increase of your staff turnover, cause higher personnel cost and in have a negative impact on the organizational performance. Hence it is of highest importance to be aware of the typical mistakes being made during the hiring process and how to avoid them.

This HR topic is designed to introduce effective recruiting tools and analyze the most crucial parts of the hiring process. During the introduction of the 'Effective hiring process', you will find answers to the following questions:

  • How to specify the hiring objective or how to develop a candidate profile?
  • How to objectively assess a candidates' qualifications and experiences?
  • How to select, identify and win candidates for your company?
  • How to realize that a candidate might not tell the (whole) truth?
  • How to verify candidates' backgrounds?

Topic 2: Challenges in Creating a Flexible Labour Force in China

by Mr. Wouter Rinia and Mr. Stefan Schmutzler from Brunel

Most multinational companies frequently face challenges in contemporary China's ever-changing business environment. In good times with orders coming in, you might be required to quickly scale up your organization in order to be able to cope with purchase orders and production demands. Likewise, in times of straits, you perhaps don't have the need or the budget to keep redundant workforce on your own payroll.

The situation in China, however, is not comparable with the common practices in Germany. During today's workshop, we will zoom in on the common practices in Europe, whether they are applicable to the situation in China, and what the challenges are in terms of creating a flexible labour force to add value to your organization:

  • Observations of the German and Chinese ways of creating a flexible labour force
  • Understanding of the local HR outsourcing services: Working contracts, service contracts, contracting services, secondment
  • Challenges and trends in the flexible labour market in China.
  • Case study of different companies who benefitted from a temporary workforce
