Activity

Need
  • In order to get closer to its Asian partners and suppliers, the company has opened a purchasing office in China and wants to mobilize one of their purchasing managers (currently based at headquarters in France) to manage this office.
Challenge

  • There is still no HR or payroll manager in China to take over the management of a Chinese contract and payroll.
  • HR managers are headquartered in France and seek support throughout the mobility of this employee, for whom expatriation is a first.
  • The employee needs to be reassured and HR managers have no experience and knowledge of immigration procedures for China.

Situation

Difficulties
  • Offer a Chinese employment contract, allowing the employee to be eligible for the application for the visa and work permit, and to be contracted under local contract under a structure able to host expatriates.
  • Do not scare the collaborator with the administrative burden of immigration procedures for obtaining a visa, work permit and residence in China.
  • Offer medical coverage equivalent to what she knows in France.
