Global HR Update Q1 2020

In this edition of our Global HR Update, we will be looking broadly at key HR trends for the first quarter.  We focus on employee experience which is very topical right now globally. We have also taken a deeper dive into the evolution of HR in Germany over the next decade.  At the time of writing, China and Asia are grappling with the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19). Nonetheless our outlook remains very positive and we take a look at China talent development and succession planning in this issue.

We hope you enjoy this edition of our Global HR Update.
