Talent Management for Small Businesses
According to the results of the past several AmCham China Business Climate Surveys, American companies report that many of their largest barriers to growth and sustainability in China revolve around HR and talent management issues. AmCham China's Small Business Forum has therefore teamed up with Michelle LaVallee, founder of Management Success China, who will discuss the basics of managing talent for small- and medium-sized businesses. She will also provide an overview of Topgrading, a set of tools to guide recruiting, interviewing, coaching, and succession planning.
In her lecture, LaVallee will provide solutions to some of the most frequently made mistakes, including: basing hiring decisions primarily on resume content and short, behavioral-based or hypothetical interviews; using vague and incomplete descriptions to explain a position; not investing in interview training for hiring managers; failing to look carefully within the organization for promotable talent; and not measuring or benchmarking hiring and promoting success.
Lunch and refreshments will be served at the event.
