  • China to introduce its 401(k) Tax-Deferred Pension scheme in 2014 ***** First for HR in dustry news, trends and an alysis, please follow us on Wechat"hrmar ketwatch". (Dec. 6, 2013, /people.com.cn/) China is getting ready to launch a tax-differed corporate annuity, its own 401-style pension scheme, in an effort to consummate a multi-tiered pension system, which means Chinese workers will be allowed to pay income tax for their annuities based on the actual amounts they receive after retirement starting in early 2014, jointly announced Friday by the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, and the State Administration of Taxation, aims to "promote the development of the country's multitiered pension system."

  • Guangzhou: if the medical insurance fund receives does not arrive at, the government will provide fiscal subsidies **** (Dec. 6, 2013, Guangzhou) Guangzhou social health insurance regulations, which has been implemented for 13 years, will be replaced by the new version from January 1, 2014. The move does not mean that the new version only extends the period of payment from 10 years to 15 years. It is also reported that people who have never attended medical treatment insurance should complete the insurance registration before December 31, and also need to be sure they have enough money for insurance costs in their bank accounts. The main highlights of the new regulations is to establish a social health insurance system of urban-rural integration, which will be finished t by 2015.

Pensions postponed: retire at 69 in U.K.**** First for HR in dustry news, trends and an alysis, please follow us on Wechat"hrmar ketwatch". (Dec. 6, 2013, /CNNMoney/) Under the reforms, which were presented as part of a bi-annual economic update on Thursday, the pension age will be linked to rising life expectancy and reflect the U.K. government's belief that workers should spend no more than a third of their adult life in retirement. The state pension age of 68 will now be enforced in the mid 2030s, about 10 years earlier than planned. And by the late 2040s it will rise to 69. The new regime will give the U.K. one of the highest pension ages in the world by the middle of the century, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Meanwhile, in the United States and Germany, the retirement limit will hit 67 by 2050, compared to a more generous 65 for workers in Japan and Mexico. Only two other countries -- Italy and Denmark -- are expected to have a normal pension age as high as 69 by then, the OECD said. Many countries are linking pensions to life expectancy as aging populations place increasing burdens on the state and government struggle to bring their borrowing under control. By raising its pension age, the U.K. government said it will save £500 billion over 50 years. The bitter news for young workers was delivered alongside an upbeat assessment of the U.K. economy.

  • 90-day trial employment period criticized in New Zealand**** (Dec. 9, 2013, /skykiwi.com/ )The New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (BIE) allows employers to make an offer of employment that includes a trial period of up to 90 days. Trial periods are voluntary, and must be agreed in writing and negotiated in good faith as part of the employment agreement. Figures published by the BIE about 69,000 employers took on at least one new staff member in 2012 under the legislation. According to the BIE, an employee who is dismissed before the end of a trial period cannot raise a personal grievance on the grounds of unjustified dismissal. It is not known how many workers were dismissed during the 90-day-trial period, but the figures show that 27% of employers said they had fired at least one new employee during or at the end of their trial. This means at least 18,000 people lost their jobs in the first three months of employment last year, with the actual figure likely to be much higher.When asked why they had dismissed staff, most employers said it was because they were unreliable or had a bad attitude. Other reasons included employees not having the necessary skills, not getting on with colleagues, and not fitting in. Ministry plans to ease restriction on staffing firms in Japan**** (Dec. 13, 2013,/HRoot/)The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare plans to revise a rule to limit temporary staffing periods to up to three years, officials said on Thursday. All workers with open-ended contracts with staffing agencies will be exempted from the rule and be allowed to continue to work at the same firm for more than three years. Currently, only 26 job types, including secretaries and television announcers, are exempted from the rule. The ministry plans to submit a bill for the revisions during an ordinary parliament session expected to start next month. Through the revision to the rule on temporary staffing periods, the ministry intends to improve employment conditions for dispatched workers. The ministry also plans to oblige staffing firms to offer new jobs to dispatched workers after three years.

The JBIC asked companies already operating overseas to choose up to five promising nations and regions for their business in the next three years. Of the nearly 500 companies, 44.9% answered that Indonesia was a good place to do business, while China saw its popularity dive to a lowest-every 37.5% from a high of 62.1%.

That’s the message of a new study from global recruiting firm Hays PLC, which surveyed the skills gap in 30 developed countries around the world. Canada ranks ninth among those countries for the severity of its skills shortage, and its score deteriorated in the past year. The report said skills shortages are not directly linked to the state of the economy in any individual country, but are more closely aligned to government policy, the efficiency of educational institutions in turning out graduates with the right skills, and how effectively employers train their workers. The situation in Canada and other developed countries will likely get worse as the global economy recovers, said Hays chief executive Alistair Cox, who was visiting Canada this week from the multinational’s headquarters in Britain.

Despite the marginal increase expected for Hong Kong, Asia as a whole is the region where employees will see the highest real wage increases. "A wage increase of just 1 per cent after adjusting for inflation means that employees in Hong Kong will receive some of the lowest wage rises in the world next year in real terms," said Lee Quane, regional director – Asia, ECA International.

Aon Hewitt survey: new Chinese government regulations give more options on maximizing returns from total rewards*** First for HR in dustry news, trends and an alysis, please follow us on Wechat"hrmar ketwatch". (Dec. 9, 2013,Shanghai)The government of China announced its new tax incentive on Enterprise Annuity (thereafter referred as 'EA') on 6 December, 2013, the nation's qualified supplemental retirement plan. The new regulation, which reduces the Individual Income Tax (IIT) to a large degree by using a tax deferral mechanism, is expected to be effective on 1st of January, 2014. Aon Hewitt, the global human resources business of Aon plc (NYSE:AON), observes that the new regulations represent the only tax benefit for Chinese employees. Aon Hewitt says that it is time for employers to reconsider their total rewards strategy, especially how they can maximize the total rewards returns to employees. Current implementers of EA: For companies that currently implements the Enterprise Annuity, employees' past contribution, for which the relevant tax has been paid for, will not be taxed again. Based on Aon Hewitt's 2013 Human Capital Intelligence Survey, China's average salary increase is 8.5%, with only 23.2% of the Chinese companies having established a supplemental retirement plan. The new regulations may alleviate the current situation where "cash is the king" in China, and push employers to consider talent attraction and retention from a total rewards perspective.

According to Stephen Gilbert, Practice Director at ReThink Talent Management, there are three key steps HR professionals must implement to avoid this and ensure talent management remains relevant to both businesses and individuals: 1)Meet the need: Talent processes can often become overly complicated causing confusion over the role and impact of these strategies. It’s vital that any talent management solutions tackle the real problem senior business managers face: resourcing gaps. 2)Focus on quality not quantity: The fundamental goal of any talent management plan is to ensure the right people are in the right role, at the right time. Highlighting the large number of candidates interviewed or promotions given are irrelevant. 3) Embrace technology: The world is becoming increasingly digital and technology is playing a greater role in the business arena, yet few are using this resource to its potential.

  • Australian Bureau of Statistics reveals Australians are retiring earlier than expected**** (Dec. 10, 2013,/xkb.com.au/) Australians are ignoring government pleas to work longer and instead are taking early retirement when they hit their 50s, new figures show. The government wants workers to retire at 67, but the average retirement age is closer to 59 for men and 50 for women, the Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed on Monday. Last financial year, the average age at retirement for people aged 45 and over was 53.8. The bureau's latest survey on “retirement and retirement intentions” in Australia suggests government plans to increase the retirement age to 67 may face some resistance. It shows the average actual age of retirement is lower than the average intended age of retirement for all age groups. But it also shows a significant number of people in the labour force aged 45 or over – almost one in five – are not planning to retire until they are at least 70.
