Conclusion

(Benciveng?? 1995) The discussi?n ?n culture ??ints ?ut th?t v?lues ?nd n?rms ?f the ?si?n culture tend t? be different fr?m Western ethics. ?n HR m?n?ger h?s t? c?nsider the dissimil?rity ?nd ?d??t t? l?c?l cust?ms.

Fr?m the em?l?yment l?w the ess?y then f?cuses ?n the Industri?l Rel?ti?ns system. The HR m?n?ger needs t? ev?lu?te the rel?ti?nshi? between em?l?yer ?nd w?rker within the h?st c?untry.

The fin?l secti?n ?f the ???er f?cuses ?n tr?ining ?nd devel??ment in Chin?. It is essenti?l t? tr?in the w?rkf?rce in ?rder ?f ?v?iding sur?rise such ?s the m?n?ger ?f ? le?ther c?m??ny h?s ex?erienced.
