    Abstract

    Taiwanese enterprises are currently facing competitive challenges in both domestic and international markets as well as being under huge pressure from economic change. They must learn to intensely study this environment to find a suitable place for investment to extend their businesses. Usually, the first priority for an investment location is in mainland China, largely because of the closeness of culture and language, which make it easier to integrate resources between the headquarters in Taiwan and subsidiaries in China. The employment of suitable local staff members in China is very important to the success of business operations. This article reviews the literature related to multinational enterprise staffing selection and the factors that should be considered. These are then categorized into four dimensions and 20 sub-factors that can be used for the recruitment of local staff in China. The fuzzy linguistic preference relation (Fuzzy LinPreRa) approach is employed to assess the importance of these factors. The goal is to help managers reduce the risk of employing inappropriate local staff members and to enhance management effectiveness.
