19. A Newcomer’s Perspective on QC in China

Download this episode (right click and save) China has come a long way in the last decade in the matters of social compliance; however, it still has long way to go. It's common for foreigners to think all of China's factories are safe, clean, and in relatively good conditions due to how they're often portrayed through the media. While in fact, a lot of them can be unsafe to work in and provide challenging work conditions for their employees. InTouch Client Manager John Niggl interviews Marketing Associate Humberto Pimentel on his first impressions of a Chinese factory following his first inspection and first supplier review. Being new to QC in China, he discusses his experiences which might be very similar to our listeners who have never had the chance to actually visit a Chinese factory, including:
  • Expectations before visiting Chinese factories
  • Initial impressions and surprises
  • Working conditions in Chinese factories
