Rethinking your Talent Strategy in a post COVID-19 China - a CBBC Digital China Webinar with Crayfish

CBBC Event

July 14
This webinar is part of our member-only Digital China programme. Composed of a series of briefings, panel discussions and webinars, it is designed to provide an overview of Chinese government policy, followed by a deep dive into activities in key sectors. 
COVID-19 has not only severely disrupted the Chinese economy but also brought profound changes to the labour market in China. SMEs and start-ups are experiencing a talent drain as the job security becomes more important and risk-taking appetite has largely dropped. In the meantime, China’s fast digitalisation has revolutionised how many industries operate during and after Covid-19, and the same is impacting the process of talent acquisition and other HR practices.  

Join the webinar by CBBC and to:  
  • Understand the scale of impact of COVID 19 and trends in the talent market in China
  • Learn how you can adapt for such changes and also some best practices in managing talent in China
  • Understand the potential rise of gig economy in China and its implications for foreign organisations
