Up to 50 per cent of China’s expatriate population reportedly return home due to difficulties adjusting, says a Beijing-based training firm.
Speaking to China Daily, David Israel-Rosen, president of China Transition Institute (CTI), said many migrants arrive unprepared for cultural differences.
He pointed to statistics that suggest between 30 and 50 per cent of expats leave the country early, describing the failure rates as "astonishing".
"It is moving from the west to the east. It is not like moving from Chicago to Denver," he explained.
Cheryl Smith, a psychologist with healthcare service International SOS China, added that spouses of migrant workers are often the worst affected.
She told the English-language publication that many suffer from anxiety, depression and marital problems.
The CTI currently hosts one-day management training programmes aiming to help those new to the country understand China’s workplace culture.
Last held on October 24th, key speakers at the event included Roberta Lipson, chief executive officer of western healthcare specialist Chindex International.
