Recently, Professor Chang Kai from the Renmin University and a group of students visited the Danish wind turbine company Vestas in Tianjin to engage in a dialogue on the relationship between a big company and its workers.
Professor Chang Kai from the School of labour and Human Resources of the Renmin University in Beijing and a group of his master and PhD. students visited the Vestas production facilities in Tianjin to learn how a large Danish company engages with its local employees and trade unions.
They met with representatives from Vestas’ department of Human Resources and representatives from the Trade Union of the Vestas factory in Tianjin that employs around 1800 people.
The Danish ambassador Friis Arne Petersen participated in the discussions and the following tour of the production facilities.
“I appreciate this opportunity to have a dialogue on labour relations and the interactions between a company and its workers. Such a meeting between a Danish company like Vestas and Chinese social science researchers and master students will help to strengthen the relationship between Denmark and China through the sharing of knowledge and best practice experiences. This is of mutual benefit,” says Friis Arne Petersen.
Vestas is the world’s largest wind turbines manufacturer, and the production facilities in Tianjin, which is Vestas’ biggest production unit in the world, produces wind turbines to all of Asia and North America.
