Management Trainee Recruitment Program

We designed and managed the end-to-end MT recruitment process to ensure high-calibre recruits and improve employer branding for our client.

Background

The client was a Chinese Conglomerate headquartered in Hong Kong while having footsteps in diverse business areas across China. They were initiating a platform-wide management trainee program across the headquarter and business-units in order to develop a pipeline of cross-business-unit generalist talents going forward.

Challenges

  • Being a Conglomerate with multiple industries, there is no prior centralised and structured MT programme.
  • Involvement from many stakeholders – HR and different BU leaders.
  • The “standard” or criteria of evaluating talents are yet to be aligned.
  • It was a first of its kind in the organisation, business leaders and HRs did not used to the process
  • COVID made it impossible to conduct face-to-face training and Assessment Centres

Objectives

  • To create a high-calibre and high-profile management trainee programs, with buy-in from top management and different business units.
  • To leverage this program to create future business leaders and cross-business-unit talents.
