Abstract

The Chinese online game industry is facing a scarcity of talented professionals and talent mobility. How to recruit and retain talented employees is a tough question that each game company has to face. Presently, most companies adopt high investment in R&D and monetary reward for solving the problem. In this paper, the authors aim to identify factors that contribute to the talent exodus. With the qualitative approaches, the authors aim to find the reasons why employees of different levels leave their working place. In the findings, the authors point out that monetary reward, training, employee involvement and motivation at work are the critical factors for the loss of talented staff and for the adjustment and implementation of the organisation's human resource management strategies. At the end of this paper, some recommendations are put forward in terms of the disadvantages of HR systems of the Chinese online game companies
