“To reach success, the right management team in China is crucial. You need to have the right competence as well as the right company/business culture."

Retention has a unique business focus, we specialize in helping Scandinavian companies to find the right management in China. We are always close to our clients headquarter in Scandinavia, as we are based in Malmö, but also to their local sites in China through our Shanghai office.The reason is the importance of transparency, a key factor to a successful China operation. A lack of transparency means increased risk taking. Since the start in China back in 2010 Retention has completed over 300 assignments on Top Management level. We have a profound knowledge of what type of profiles that will create results but also, through our constantly growing network of profiles with extensive China experience, we know where to find them.

”What currently happens in China is the greatest thing that happened in the People’s Republic of China’s history, what we see is nothing less than a paradigm shift”

– Mats Harborn, President European Union Chamber of Commerce in China

Retention Process

The Retention process is a method developed by us built on over ten years of experience recruiting top management professionals and key competence in China, Scandinavia and internationally for global Nordic companies. The method is divided into 3 steps and the process is finalized when we have completed the follow up analysis.

”China is currently facing major changes. China will move from accumulating assets to get assets to generate revenue. The system is also about to change, the market will play a crucial role – the government sets the rules of the game but then have to take a step back and let the market play on the field”

– Mats Harborn, President European Union Chamber of Commerce in China

“The local company must bear their own costs. We must decide if we want to have Scandinavian or Chinese culture in the local company. Mixed management is needed if we want to strengthen the western culture”
