AMS cements growth in China and expands footprint in Shanghai
06 September 2022 — Global provider of talent outsourcing and advisory services AMS (formerly Alexander Mann Solutions) is continuing to cement its growth in China with the opening of new office premises in the Jing’an district of Shanghai.
The opening of larger facilities reflects the increasing demand for services across China and the wider Asia Pacific Region. AMS has been a fixture in the Chinese outsourcing and advisory market since it opened its first office in Shanghai in 2009. This latest move follows the opening of a new office location in Wuhan earlier this year which is already helping AMS to better serve a growing list of clients and rising talent demands across China.
In 2021, AMS grew its China team by 70% and they have enjoyed considerable success in recent years, consistently being recognised among the Best 100 HR Services Brands in China, receiving the 2022 NewFlag Awards for “Best HR Solution” and winning “Best Recruitment Process Outsourcing Provider” at the HRflag Awards in both 2021 and 2022.
The team will now build on these successes and new office locations to support AMS’ aim to double its headcount in China over the next three to five years.
Roop Kaistha, Regional Managing Director, APAC, commented: “We have seen a considerable growth in demand for recruitment outsourcing and talent advisory solutions across the APAC region in recent years, with an increasing number of our global and regional programs including China in their scope as a part of the growth. This is a highly knowledgeable market and it is very pleasing that we are able to bring our expertise and experience to support our clients with their talent needs.”
Kensy Sy, General Manager, AMS China, said: “I am very pleased to be expanding our office facilities in China which will allow us to continue to support our ever-growing list of clients in this region. We are committed to continuing this growth trajectory, building on our success, and helping our clients to navigate the very competitive talent market we are seeing currently seeing.”
Guangrong Wang, Director, Jing’an Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, said: “AMS has enjoyed great success since it opened its first office in Shanghai in 2009. They have supported the growth of many businesses in Shanghai and across China through their expertise in providing talent advice and solutions. They have been welcome contributor to the Jing’an district and we look forward to supporting their future growth over the coming years.”
