Bogomtale fra forlaget.

Investigating the extent to which China has embraced western HRM, this book provides a long awaited analysis of the changing nature of work, employment and HRM in Chinese society. With recent radical reforms in workplace welfare and social security provisions, there has been growing interest in the area and this book addresses the most important issues of the day, such as growing inequality in employment, public sector reform, pay systems and vocational training. The book includes first hand research and case studies, as well as secondary data and official statistics, and in doing so presents readers with a truly rounded view.
