Engaging Chinese Employees Can Be Done
My company thrives on these three things: recognition, freedom and strong sense of purpose. You might get email anytime of the day night or even weekend from us, because we make our kids recitals. You will see our hearts are in the work as everyone knows their value to the team. Our purpose is to provide managers who are honest and have real resumes with good jobs. Our purpose is further to place leaders in Western companies in China who will make all the workers smile and not just the owner. That feels good to my team. That my team gets rewarded for being transparent and killing off the candidates our clients liked the most also inspires! I mean they can say no to the liars among these. Our clients then sadly find out and turn from these. We can then say yes to the real gems who no one else noticed. We find they are gems. Can you give your workers these three things? That will help. However, if you hire the wrong managers, it will never make you wealthy or really slow down turnover. That is because the leaders you hired will use everyone below them or hire the dregs and that takes away all their smiles or yours. The sad faces will come even if you give ice cream. We know from experience that ice cream never hurts though. Get more on engagement here and here.
