HR Structure

As of the end of 2020, Sinyi Realty had a total of 4,997 employees, including 17 senior managers, 68 middle managers, 521 base-level managers, and 4,400 general employees Due to the nature of the real estate agency business, male employees were somewhat greater in number than female (61.86% to 38.14%), while female managers accounted for 18.76% of total management.

New Hires and Turnover

Of the total staffing of Sinyi Realty, sales staff account for approximately 80%, and while there is no gender bias in hiring, due to the nature of the industry new hires tend to largely be young males. Departures are similarly structured to the overall staff structure, with the largest number being men under 30 years of age. Real estate agency is a somewhat challenging line of work, demanding not only long hours but also a heavy workload.
