The year 2016-17 will be a consistent year for HR professionals in China. There’s significant interest in HR specialists that are bi-lingual, particularly in large multinational companies, who understand the Chinese perspective and could balance this with the international best practice.

While salaries will mostly remain steady, there is an expected increase of 8% to 15% throughout the profession. This is anticipated to continue for the whole of the year, especially since more firms prioritise their HR procedures.

In China, the HR professionals have managed to develop new strategies directed at retaining current employees by investing in their professional development. New strategies have also been successful in attracting new talent. Along with this, internal HR divisions are being set up by an increasing number of small businesses to be able to manage their workforce more professionally.

Frank Yu, Chairman for ZW HR Consulting, said, “We see a high demand for HR related jobs in various sectors as MNCs and large local firms continue to expand their presence across China and the region aggressively. This is creating new opportunities for more robust and sturdy HR, Compensation and Benefits, HRIS Leaders and Training professionals with specific industry experience to manage long-term strategies. Overall, there has been an increase in the number of HR roles coming to market at all levels and across various disciplines.”

He further said, “Businesses across China do need skilled HR professionals to help recruit and retain employees. In most cases, the highest calibre HR professionals are not proactively seeking for a new job. However, we also have found that the majority are open to hearing about new opportunities. We are increasingly receiving high number of speculative enquiries from HR professionals enquiring about the potential opportunities in the market.”
