China is the world’s fastest-growing economy, offering significant opportunities for U.S. businesses, but also a unique set of HR challenges. Quick employee turnover, widely varying employment laws between provinces, recruiting the right talent, benefits desired by Chinese workers -- are all issues for companies entering China and organizations already there.
