Notice: Given the novel coronavirus outbreak in China and following the Shanghai government's guidance as well as in consideration of health and safety of our members, we have decided to cancel this event on 6 February and postpone it to a later date.

The Chamber's SME and HR focus groups invite members to this experiential workshop, from which participants will learn the foundational elements of a consistent and future-oriented hiring process. This interactive session is designed for business owners/founders, business leaders and managers, and HR practitioners.

Hiring is widely considered one of the biggest challenges in business today. At the same time, however, getting it right can become a business’ greatest opportunity for success.

How can we design a hiring process that consistently allows us to identify and select the best candidate for the job, while setting the ground for future performance development? 

Hiring the right person is critical for any organisation. 

Larger firms with more solid performance management and talent development practices need to ensure a coherent hiring process to ensure that their people strategy is on track. 

At the same time, small and medium enterprises need to make sure that new hires not only fit the company culture, but also truly have the skills and competency to contribute to the firm’s success. 



雇用合适的人才对每一个组织,不论大小,都至关重要。拥有绩效管理和人才发展计划的大公司需要确保招聘流程的一致性,从而使其人才战略朝正确的方向发展; 中小型企业需要确保新员工与公司文化的兼容性,并判断候选人真正具有为公司成功做出贡献的技能和能力。
