Shanghai, China – 25 July 2019. BIPO Services was recently awarded “Global Service Provider, under the Special Plan of Human Resources Service” by the Shanghai Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau and Jing’an District People’s Government.
Along with nine other leading international players in the Human Resources industry, BIPO was selected based on a comprehensive and robust evaluation process (from influence, brand establishment, service products to service scale and integrity). The other nine companies presented with the award are Heidrick & Struggles, FSG, Career International, Talent Spot International, Page Group, 51job, Randstad, CGP and Manpower Group.
In a strategic move that will anchor Shanghai’s importance and leading role as a global service provider, this special program aims to cultivate HR enterprises in China, supporting them in their globalisation efforts while strengthening cooperation.
“We are honoured by this recognition. It marks yet another key milestone for BIPO as we continue to help businesses simplify and transform their HR (and business) processes through the adoption of technology”, said Michael Chen, Chief Executive Officer.
With this award, Research & Development will continue to be a key focus for BIPO. Three additional R&D Centres have since been established in Shanghai, Indonesia and Malaysia to cater to the increasingly sophisticated technological needs of BIPO’s clients in the region.
In addition, BIPO aims to further enhance its existing suite of products and services by providing businesses with more seamless integration of their HR processes to BIPO’s Human Resources Management Systems (HRMS) platform – from payroll to HR operations outsourcing, social security and employment management to the renewal and commissioning of work permits.
BIPO recently launched its self-developed, intuitive “Workio” APP, targeted at local businesses in China. The APP helps to streamline and simplify HR processes, ensuring that businesses are equipped with the right tools and technology to stay competitive in the international business arena.
As part of its efforts to accelerate the international development and growth of the Human Resources industry, Jing’an is the first district to build a national industrial park in the 4.3km2 Suzhou Creek area. An innovative zone for the Financial sector, the west-end cluster will be developed specifically for the Human Resources industry. There are also plans to pilot an “open-door HR policy” in its Industrial Parks, by strengthening co-ordination with city-level authorities to solve “bottlenecks” in foreign exchange controls and the employment of international students.
The district also plans to develop international dialogue sessions, including a global leadership summit and regularly issue industry reports to foster better understanding of local and international labour issues.
