How to Navigate an Initial Public Offering in China

When a company is preparing for an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in China, the Human Resources (HR) department faces a unique set of challenges. These challenges are often centered around aligning the HR strategy with the overall business objectives of the IPO, while managing the internal dynamics and expectations of the workforce.

HR Regulatory Requirements

  • Ensuring that HR policies and practices comply with the regulations of public companies, which are often more stringent than for private companies.

  • Reviewing and updating policies related to employee conduct, confidentiality, and insider trading.

Compensation and Benefits Restructuring

  • Modifying compensation structures to align with public company standards, which may include introducing or revising stock option plans.

  • Communicating changes in compensation and benefits to employees effectively to maintain morale.

Scaling HR Operations

  • Expanding the HR department’s capabilities to handle an increase in operational demands.

  • Implementing or upgrading HR information systems to manage a larger, potentially more geographically dispersed workforce.

Frequently Asked Questions

Payroll & mandatory benefits are included in our China Employer of Record and our PEO services.

In many countries, PEO and EOR are the same thing and can be interchanged. However in countries such as China and the USA, PEO and EOR refer to different services:

With Employer of Record (EOR), the service provider takes on the responsibility & liability of the employer since the client does not have a legal entity in the country of interest.

With Professional Employment Organization (PEO), the service provider manages hiring, employment and payroll, but does not take on the responsibility or liability of the employer since the client has a legal entity in the country of interest.

The 13th month bonus in China refers to a bonus equal to one month’s salary that is usually paid at the onset of Chinese New Year.

This 13th month bonus is not mandatory unless explicitly stated in the labor contract upon signing. A 13th month bonus depends on the company’s performance as well as the employee’s performance.

It is possible for employees to receive an even higher bonus (14th or even 15th month bonus) depending on these factors.
