Full description for Hong Kong Management and Labour
This book considers the highly topical, and rapid changes over recent decades in Hong Kongs labour market in order to answer these questions. With waves of immigration and emigration; an improvement in the level of skill and education; and increasing participation by women, Hong Kongs labour market is changing. This book examines the economic, social and political factors affecting labour markets, management style and organised labour in recent years, and examines enduring influences such as the Chinese cultural stress on family collectivism and many changes such as de-industrialisation following the transfer of manufacturing to the Chinese mainland. Moreover, these far reaching changes look set to continue in the New Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China. Hong Kong Management and Labour argues, in a series of previously unpublished, completely up-to-date contributions, that economic and social change have been ongoing in Hong Kong for many years, and political change is perhaps less important for labour and management in the region. This book is written with policy makers and managers - particularly human resource managers; those involved in labour relations trade unions, labour markets and law, and comparative management - in mind.
