EMA Partners International
For Immediate Release —
As part of an ongoing program offered by EMA Partners’ offices in France and Belgium, recent breakfast and luncheon sessions have offered recruitment and talent management assistance to European companies that need to recruit or develop leadership talent in China. Assisting at events held by the Paris and Brussels offices was Johnny Ng, the Managing Partner of the Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai offices. Mr. Ng and his team have conducted searches throughout the Greater China region for more than twenty years. Mr. Ng presented critical and relevant information to attendees including an update on China’s economy, highlighting challenges and the impact on people management. Presented as a workshop, attendees were tutored on the nuances of leaders and leadership in China and provided with examples of China’s labour laws that are commonly missed or misinterpreted. For many European companies, there is growing urgency to identify and/or to develop talent and leaders in China and in other Asia-Pacific territories.
“The workshop fulfilled my expectations. We now feel more confident that we can effectively recruit, even in China, with reliance on our long lasting relationship with EMA’s Brussels office, and in partnership with Mr. Ng, who will inevitably understand our requirements and help to bridge the gap between European and Chinese culture,” remarked a Board Member attending on behalf of a BtoB technology company.
Other attendees, included existing clients of EMA Partners France indicated that the information demystified China’s marketplace while confirming the potential opportunities that exist to work collaboratively with EMA’s global network of executive search practitioners. The workshop generated sufficient interest and demand for additional events about recruiting and developing talent. EMA will continue to coordinate workshops and events in the New Year and will expand to new locations including Saudi Arabia and Poland.
