We find talented people with character that your company can trust in China.

What is the secret to our success as an executive search agency? How do we help companies in China save time and money while increasing profit margin? Why do clients and candidates turn to SHI Group again and again as their trusted China headhunter? The answer to all three questions is the same: SHI Group weeds out the people who lie to you in the interview. In doing so, we find those who are experts at doing real work, as opposed to those who are skilled at the interview.


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. Hence, we are an executive recruitment agency that gets our clients the results that are looking for. Get SHI Group China for your premium executive recruitment agency in China now.

We methodically research behind the resume and interview to get real data. China executive search candidates are very seasoned in the interview process. Furthermore, SHI Group interviews deeply and uses that to set up the strongest of background checks. Among top leaders, we find that fully 80% are lying to get the job. We weed them out and offer you the other 20% who have real talent. See also Perfect Resumes are a Big Problem.

We Are Not Like Other China Headhunters

China headhunter china executive searchOther China head hunters can find good resumes and coach them to do a good interview.  They do not tell you bad things about their best candidates. Contrarily, we tell you the truth about each candidate even when it makes work for us. This is especially the case when a guy appears to be the best candidate as he has a perfect resume and a flawless interview. 90% of the time these people are all talk and no substance. No one is perfect and these guys are just lying to get a job offer from you.

We find that out and tell you right away, so you do not have to waste any more time with them. That makes a lot more work for us as you still need a great hire.  After killing our best candidate, we still have to search more to find a real candidate who can tell you the truth about his good and bad.  These great hires we find know they have something to offer and are not afraid to tell the truth. That makes SHI Group  a very different China headhunter. We are glad to be that way and will always dig deep to first find the hard to find.  Then, we will dig deep again and uncover the whole truth and hand it to you.  That is what you need, and that is what we are glad to do.

You Need More For China Executive Recruitment Then You Get

In addition, you need someone who wants to learn what you really want and implement as needed. No resume can tell you this. However, you need this, and so we have developed a system to identify and filter out people who lie to get the job offer from you. That is a lot more work for us as we kill our best resumes. Moreover, we know you need a real leader and not just a candidate who is very good at resume and interviews.

Boutique advantages

And as a focused China headhunter, we pinpoint the best talent for both public and private companies, as well as venture capital and private equity firms throughout our China recruitment process.

Even more so,  we implement a consistently analytical and data-driven approach. Finally, we identify exceptional leaders with the skills and qualities essential to reaching your organization’s goals. Moreover, at SHI Group, we pursue that vision through our deep background searches. We also proactively seek out and engage top performers with the strengths and integrity that uniquely match your company’s needs. See Also Recruiting Agency in China on Contact Page
