What is Trustworthy Talent®?

Workers who are talented can make you money or know best how to steal your money. 72% of Chinese managers that Western companies in China hire have falsified their experience to get their positions. It is just those people who have amazing interview skills and polished resumes that always put themselves first and use every word to advance their cause. These politically skilled people drag down efficiency in our enterprises here, and it is all not necessary. Trustworthy Talent® can be found and identified in China in every place and skill specialty. They are more than worth the effort to consistently bring on your team. We are an executive search China agency that gets our clients the results that are looking for. Get SHI Group China for your premium recruitment agency in China now.

What Our Clients Say About Our Executive Search China Services

SHI Group gave us the strategy, recruiting  and consulting we needed to give new life to our China venture. Working with Jim helped me in more ways than I can mention. If you are looking to get started in China or want to do better in China, they can help you and you will be partnering with caring and wise people.

Albert Otto, Sigmatek, International Sales & Operations
SHI Group assisted us to place two high-level personnel at our Beijing organization. Both were professional and competent people that we highly need.  I would recommend SHI Group to place people of character and ability to anyone who asked.

TC Cheong, Taylor-Wharton, Vice President
Jim has great strategic insight and deep ability to gain understanding of a company. Jim showed this clearly in the matter of Pritronics and its owners at the holding company Headquarters. He gave a lot of guidance and support which took Pritronics from four consecutive years of losses to its first ever profitability.
