China Talent Trends

Despite common perceptions, employees in China aren’t going anywhere soon. Job-seeking behavior is down 15.2% year over year. Only 6.1% of employees in China report low intent to stay compared to the global average of 9.9%. The percentage of Chinese workers reporting high intent to stay has significantly risen over the last year.

Discretionary effort levels remain low. Given that only 10.4% of employees in China display high levels of discretionary effort, leaders must focus on retaining those hard workers by developing an attractive employment value proposition (EVP). In China, 72.5% of employees who go above and beyond at work intend to stay with their employers.
