Abstract The purpose of this paper is to present a conceptual model of guanxi-oriented human resource management (HRM) appropriate for organisations located in China that wish to maximise knowledge sharing and exchange. The recognised need by Western-based organisations to develop trusting relationships through appropriate HRM approaches presents the setting to introduce the importance of guanxi in Chinese culture. The added complexity for Chinese organisations that employ a diversity of what are termed, in this paper, Conventional and Foreign Educated Chinese and Acculturated and Newly Arrived Expatriates is also presented.
