Abstract: With the increasing investment of Japanese companies in China, Japanese style management has met more and more challenges in managing local human resources. A lot of Japanese subsidiaries in China have faced great problems in hiring and keeping qualified Chinese employees. This study is intended to explore the factors underlying these problems from the perspective of local employees. With this intention, a series of semi-structured interviews with Chinese people who are currently working in Japanese companies were conducted in eight Japanese subsidiaries in Tianjin, Beijing and Shanghai.From the results of the investigation, this study identifies a number of factors, starting with relatively simple issues like seating arrangements in offices and working time issues, to continue with more complex issues of remuneration, advancement and self-fulfillment, and finally, general sentiments against Japan and develops five hypotheses from theoretical perspective with regards to the overall HRM problems of Japanese corporations in China.
