China has taken a gradual reform in the enterprise system and human resources management has been changed
day by day in foreign-invested enterprises. A subsequent challenge of this globalization is the managerial
influences of multicultural management. This paper is to clarify and analyze the problems which stem from
cultural conflicts between foreign supervisors and Chinese subordinators in Chinese foreign-invested
enterprises. Other than that, this paper also tries to find some feasible ways to improve the current situation. A
qualitative approach with a single case study of “Email Gate” in China is employed in the study.
