    HP China to hire over 1,000 people, biggest ever
    BEIJING,05/06-
    Hewlett-Packard (HP), U.S. technology giant, plans to recruit more than
    1,000 workers on the Chinese mainland by the end of this year, reported
    Saturday`s China Daily.

    The
    aggressive move, experts says, underlines that China is becoming a
    source of talent for multinationals, instead of merely a manufacturing
    centre and a market.
    HP`s current 5,000 staff members are expected
    to grow 20 percent with the recruitment that will start this month to
    fill various posts, such as sales managers, technical consultants and
    software engineers, Cheng-Yaw Sun, president of HP China, was quoted as
    saying.About one fourth of the 1,078 vacant posts are for research and
    development (R&D) staff members.And engineers, who will work for a
    global BPO (business process offshore) center in Dalian, Liaoning
    Province, will account for 28 percent of the new jobs.Sun said the
    recruitment is the largest ever of its kind in the history of HP China
    since it entered the country in 1985 as the first Sino-US high-tech
    joint venture, whose mainland business jumped by 25 percent in 2005.”We
    expect to maintain rapid growth this year, which will require
    substantial support from more local talent,” he said.”China has become
    the most important strategic market and talent pool for HP globally.”
    While
    recruiting more people to the China division, HP last year announced a
    plan to axe 14,500 jobs globally as part of a restructuring programme
    designed to save 1.9 billion U.S. dollars annually and improve
    performance.
