  • 25HRoot 2014 Robert Walters survey: more shared service centre in 2014 **** (Jan. 26, 2014,/HRoot/) China’s growing importance as a market for multinationals as well as these companies’ drive to centralise back office processes and reduce costs are leading to the rise of China-based regional headquarters with shared service centres (SSCs). This trend bodes well for mid- to senior-level executives with both in-market and regional experience, who can command a salary increase of 10% and 20%, on par with figures from Robert Walters’ annual salary survey for China in 2014. Employers that are setting up SSCs have developed sophisticated recruitment strategies to ensure they have the right talent. Some companies adopted a top-down hiring approach so that new managers are involved in the recruitment of their own teams. Companies are stepping up efforts to ensure staff retention in SSCs, including offering career development opportunities and greater scope of responsibilities for employees. There are few candidates who have the skills and proven success to manage this process, where there is often a major shift in company’s expectations and staff workload.

According to the recruiter, few applicants have digital marketing experience or qualifications, creating a significant skills shortage in China. Education providers need to prepare graduates with the foundations and competencies needed to plan and execute world-class digital initiatives. Furthermore, the predicament is exacerbated by the business community’s unwillingness to foster digital marketing skills by fully investing in digital marketing initiatives. There is a wide range of undergraduate and post-graduate academic qualifications in marketing on offer in China but there is concern that the topics taught at university are not keeping pace with rapid advancements in the industry.
