In order to collect data, a survey containing open and closed questions was sent and analysed inspired by qualitative analysing methods, using a qualitative approach. The results from the study showed that motivators such as a higher salary, fringe benefits and promotion are reasons enough, to some highly skilled Chinese, to emigrate. Interesting results found in the study indicated that many well educated Chinese wants to live abroad due to the work experience, but are planning to come back to China again, in the future. In addition to this, the study supported that Chinese culture has an overall impact on the Chinese people at work and that the organizations work culture is highly affected by Chinese culture.
