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.
