Abstract

This study examines major policy measures that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leaders have adopted to establish a party-led, merit-based talent management system to cope with a talent deficit in the reform era. It also assesses the effectiveness of these measures at both national and local levels. This study argues that although merit principles are never entirely missing from China's cadre personnel management, they have been given increasing priority in managing the cadre corps and recruiting global experts to China during the past three decades. This study shows that the CCP personnel management policies are in substantial and adaptive evolution, which is important for understanding the nature of human resource management in post-Mao China. This paper examines major policy measures that the Chinese leaders have adopted to establish a party-led, merit-based talent management system in the reform era. It shows that the CCP's personnel management policies are in substantial and adaptive evolution, which is important to understand the nature of HRM in post-Mao China.
