Case study: Managing Talent Turnover in China


For the past six years ISCTE-IUL is partnering with two leading universities in China – UESTC in Chengdu and Southern Medical University in Guangzhou – for the delivery of two high profile doctoral programs. Research undertaken by candidates is problem-driven rather than theory-driven although theory plays an important part in helping to understand and eventually solve the problem. By far the problem most frequently being brought by students is the high turnover rate that plagues the attempts to retain talented workers in the vast and varied China’s corporate landscape. As Chinese enterprises mature and go beyond their “pure” entrepreneurship stage, sustainability, which cannot be achieved without a stable workforce and talent retention, becomes a major concern. Research by Virginia Trigo and Shaozhuang Ma from BRU-IUL addressing this specific problem in the Chinese context and involving Chinese participants is having and will continue to have a high impact among managers and policy makers.
