Xiaomi plans on internal restructuring, to focus on talent and Strengthen its Core

Lei Jun, the founder and Chief Executive of Xiaomi plans to set up the company to undergo into internal restructuring, aimed at recruiting new talent to strengthen its core.

The Beijing-headquartered company's internal restructuring would make way for 10 new business units -- four hardware units, four Internet services units, one technology platform and an e-commerce platform.

"It will also increase the efficiency of each department and build strong career progression, allowing us to develop younger talent and provide them with opportunities to shine," Lei wrote in a letter to Xiaomi staff, South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported on Friday.

"The company's organisational shake-up comes at a time when the governance of Chinese companies is under the spotlight," the report added.

One of the new departments would oversee recruitments, promotion and training while the other would be tasked with managing the firm's development strategy as well as monitoring the progress of individual business units.

"Without experienced soldiers, there is no succession. Without new troops, there is no future. We need to groom and develop a large group of young managerial talent.. to manage the troops. Let every capable and ambitious young person learn to battle and grow quickly on the battlefield," Lei added in the letter to the employees.

Recently, Chinese e-tailer Alibaba's Executive Chairman Jack Ma announced his plans to resign after a 12-month transition period, handing over the reins to Daniel Zhang, current Chief Executive of Alibaba Group Holding.

Alibaba Group went on to say that on 10th September 2019, which is its 20th anniversary, Daniel Zhang (46), the Chief Executive, will go on and take charge as the new Chairman.
