Plastic and Rubber Machinery Manufacturers in China experience record low fluctuation and stable headcount growth

On the day prior to the Chinaplas opening, a newly released Salary Survey found that German and Austrian machinery manufacturers in the plastics and rubber industry saw the staff size of their Chinese entities grow steadily over the last six years.  Similarly to 2017, the majority of respondents have a staff size of above 100 employees, up from 10-50 employees in 2013 and 2015.

The survey, conducted for the fourth time by Fiducia Executive Search in cooperation with the German mechanical engineering association VDMA, tracks salary, recruitment, retention, and HR trends in China among the association’s member companies. 

Alongside growing staff size, the findings also showcase a continuously low staff turnover rate of less than 5% (compared to an industry average of 21%) as well as an increase in the use of mobile marketing for recruitment.

4 things you need to know about your future employees

You might as well get used to the idea and prepare yourself for the task. The generation that is currently in the process of passing through the education system and into the companies places great demands on you as a leader. For better or for worse. The Millennials are digitally native, razor-sharp and top-motivated, but they also fight some ghosts that will scare you if you are not prepared. If you are, you can use most of the ghosts constructively.

At least one thing is for sure: they are not like you and me, the generation that is heading out into the companies, and thus becoming your employees and colleagues in the coming many years. The Millennium generation, the digital natives, the pampered generation – it goes by many names. And like any other generation, the terms cover a number of characteristics that you, as a leader, need to know if you want to make sure your new employees thrive, produce, and deliver. When you plunge into describing an entire generation in this way, there are, of course, talk of generalizations. Here too. I paint with the wide brush and I admit it. But I’m not alone. The American author and lecturer, Simon Sinek, has identified four overriding features that The Millennials have in the baggage. You can hear him talk about them in the video here. The video is inspiring and there are many truths in it, but I still think it lacks something. Namely, focus on how you, as a leader, can utilize the properties that Sinek by far way only sees problems in.

Let us take the challenges one by one and look at what risks they contain – and opportunities.
