We know from our work with clients around the globe that China continues to be a focus of interest, activity—and challenge. The issues identified in Cartus’ recently conducted China survey are reinforced in our Feb. 14 press release, which further underlines how companies are responding to the talent needs in China, including volume shifts to Tier II and II cities and the use of changing assignment forms. Some of the most critical challenges faced by companies and their assignees concern the cultural differences faced by many Western-based organizations, and the adaptations required to live and work productively and successfully in China. Our new podcast, featuring Jo Danehl, Director of Cartus Intercultural & Language Solutions group, explores those issues and provides some best practice ideas for companies that are already doing business in China—or those who have cast their eyes on the vast opportunities of this expansive market.
