The overall changing business environment along with new expectations towards jobs and requirements for work places provide a general challenge for companies all over China. Especially difficult is the question of how enterprises can prepare their businesses for a smooth transition to lower growth levels. This has become a key challenge for any foreign company in China.

Due to this development, it is more and more important for companies in China to shift their focus on increasing work efficiency in administration as well as in production. But increasing workplace efficiency is not merely a question of doing more work in less time, it is also a question of focusing so that employees can produce quality work with less effort.

The German Chamber of Commerce in North China together with the European Chamber of Commerce Shenyang Chapter and AmCham China Northeast Chapter cordially invite you to join this half-day workshop with experienced speakers to discuss various relevant topics to improve your personal self-management and introduce how such an efficiency increase at any workplace can be achieved.
