"Global Human Resources Management" was the topic on November 5 when I spoke at the China Executives Club in Chicago. The purpose of this panel was to help Chinese business leaders manage human resources issues at their investee companies in the United States. Joining me on the panel were Tracy Xu, Area Vice President, Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services, (moderator), Faith Wan, Global Talent Process Lead at Mars, Inc., and Katie Lau, Area Senior Vice President for Gallagher Benefit Services. Discussion topics ranged from management style differences to retention strategies to employee benefits design. The topic attracted keen interest. Chinese executives from as far away as Duluth, Minnesota and Detroit, Michigan attended. J P Morgan sponsored the event in a sky-high meeting hall with fabulous Chicago views.
