Even as China's growth slows, the demand for talent keeps growing. Companies are best advised to upgrade their talent retention scheme to retain their top performers, using cost-efficient incentive plans and carefully designed policies. 
The British Chamber's HR & Training forum is pleased to invite you to an in-depth discussion on the subject of talent retention with experts speaking from the legal, recruitment and corporate HR perspectives. Their presentations will be followed by a Q&A discussion, so come along with your questions prepared! Members and non-members are welcome.
  • The Legal Perspective, presented by Jonny Choi, Partner, DLA Piper
  • The Recruitment Perspective, presented by Rupert Forster, Managing Director, Michael Page
  • The HR Perspective, presented by Denise Wang, HR Director, Weber Shandwick China

Moderated by Tracy Driscoll, HR Forum Chair and Head of Coaching at The Leadership Group

The Legal Perspective

How to retain talent and prevent loss of knowhow in an increasingly competitive business environment

As economic growth slows in China, companies are facing increasing competitive pressures to remain profitable and improve efficiency. Attracting and retaining highly skilled talent is key in achieving this, as is protecting the company's knowhow, technology and IP, which is becoming increasingly important as China moves away from labour-intensive to technology-intensive industries.

Drawing on DLA Piper's experience in assisting multinational corporations, you will walk away from this session with tips to help you identify the risks and common pitfalls in talent retention schemes and ways to prevent loss of knowhow and technology through employees/former employees. In particular, the session will cover:

  • Compensation and benefits, short term and long-term incentive plan design and pitfalls
  • Talent training scheme
  • Risk control of confidentiality and non-competition
  • Crisis resolution of confidentiality and non-competition infringement
