HNA Group Overview

Against the backdrop of reform and liberalization in China, HNA Group has become one of the fastest-growing multinational corporations. Since its first flight in 1993, HNA has evolved from a regional airline based on Hainan Island into a giant multi-industry conglomerate as a result of international investments with a strategic focus on air-travel, hospitality, tourism, real estate, commodity retail, finance, logistics, shipbuilding and eco-tech.

HNA Group is composed of six sub-groups: Tech & Logistics, Tourism, Capital, Holdings, Innovation Finance, and Modern Logistics.These six sub-groups collectively employs over 400 thousand staffs worldwide, control or have a share in 19 airlines with a fleet of more than 1250 aircraft, manage the world’s largest aircraft leasing group, operate or have a stake in over 3100 hotels worldwide, and are responsible for operating 13 airports.

HNA Group has been honored with opportunities to accompany China’s national leaders to visit the United States, United Kingdom, Belgium, and the Czech Republic, among others. These national leaders witnessed the signing of contracts allowing HNA to operate flights between Beijing and Lisbon, Beijing and Manchester, and Shanghai and Brussels. HNA has also embraced international markets in other ways by acquiring ICE, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Ingram Micro Inc., and Gategroup; by becoming the largest single shareholder of Hilton Worldwide; by joining hands with Uber through strategic cooperation; and by establishing a joint venture with Rocket Space.

Even as HNA Group has grown to become a large international corporation, it has maintained a stark commitment to strong CSR practices. One of HNA’s key CSR initiatives is HNA Brightness Action, which over the last 12 years has helped over 6000 cataract patients to regain their sight in regions including the Tibetan Plateau, Xinjiang, and Inner-Mongolia as well as Africa and Southeast Asia. In 2016, HNA Group initiated the Nepal World Culture Heritage Program with UNESCO, and worked with UNICEF on the Love Gift Program. To date, HNA Group has donated over RMB 10 billion in charity.

    First Rotation: Business/Strategy Analyst, HNA Tech &Logistics Group

    I joined the HNA Group in 2016 and have been working as a Strategy Analyst in the Strategic Development Department. I have been responsible for macroscopic analysis, industry research, and enterprise analysis. In the past 4 months, with the guidance of department managers, I have conducted analyses on 20+ enterprises, including many Fortune 500 companies and companies in hot and cutting-edge industries like logistics, cloud computing, big data, and IoT. I have already produced several reports to support strategic decision-making in many of these areas. I have also been very fortunate to participate in the merger process of the HNA Eco-Tech Group and the HNA Logistics Group, and was involved in the preparation process of the preliminary planning of the HNA Tech & Logistics Group. I am grateful to the HNA Group for providing such a wonderful platform and for supporting all HNAers to grow and improve.

    HNA provides wonderful opportunities for everyone in the group to grow and improve. For example, we have an HNA learning platform, scheduled and non-scheduled inter-department teambuilding activities, and professional skill and communication workshops. Through these activities, HNAers can not only improve their professional skill sets but also have the opportunity to communicate with people from other departments and industrial groups, especially senior executives, building bridges for growth and innovation.

    I really like HNA, not only because it has great potential and is facing vital and historical growth opportunities, but also because of the people here and the way we’ve grown to care about one another. I have met a lot of wonderful people at HNA, many of whom are leading professionals in their industries. By working with such talented people, I hope I can similarly become a leading expert in my field. I am also touched by the ways I see the HNA Group showing love to communities throughout the world. It is this kind of love for the world and for mankind that attracts me to the company. It is also this kind of love that encourages me to grow within the HNA Group. If you identify with the vision and mission of HNA, and if you have big dreams, HNA welcomes you to join us!

    First Rotation:Marketing & Sales, Hainan Airlines

    For my first rotation in the program I was lucky enough to have been placed within the Marketing and Sales Department of Hainan Airlines, HNA’s flagship carrier. In my position I have had the privilege of working on the team responsible for establishing four new flight routes connecting China and Australia, as well as one new flight route connecting China and New Zealand. To see a project go from just an idea to a fully- functioning international flight route has been an amazing experience and one I will treasure both professionally and personally for the rest of my life.  

    I am incredibly lucky to have a really amazing team and on a regular basis my office holds dinners, afternoon teas in the office and even KTV parties in order for us to relax and get to know each other on a more personal basis. I think these events are a fantastic opportunity to breakdown strict professional barriers which can sometimes be put up in the work place, and allow you to build really strong, enjoyable relationships with your colleagues. I have also attended several trainings with both my fellow GMT program hires and new marketing and sales department hires, providing us not only with on the job training but also an opportunity to get to know our colleagues in other departments and companies and build a strong professional network within the HNA group as a whole.

    I think what I would like to say most to the 2017 ITP candidates is enjoy the ride! HNA is an fantastic company to get involved with, they have vast global horizons and are expanding rapidly so there are many brilliant opportunities on offer. If you are open to exciting, albeit occasionally challenging opportunities both in China and globally then HNA is the place for you.

    First Rotation: Investment Banking, HNA Tourism Investment Holdings

    I was lucky enough to join the acquisition project of two luxury resorts located in Tahiti after only two short weeks with HNA. It convinced me that HNA is a company willing to offer the young generation opportunities and trust. Diverse possibilities for my career are undoubtedly on the way.

    I initially chose to join the theater out of personal interest, but I was quite surprised that the director and performing stage were as professional as a national team level. Our final performance was even reported by main stream media. Now all the colleagues are still good friends. Actually the department and company will organize different activities to meet all the interests of employees. 

    To be honest, it’s not possible for a single company to meet the diverse needs of all different kinds of job candidates. HNA already has 20 years of history, but it is still a young member of Global Fortune 500, making it an ideal stage for young professionals with international vision, ambition and ability. So if you are good at listening, willing to share your ideas, and not afraid to contribute, you’d be a welcome addition to the HNA family.

    First Rotation: Board of Directors Office, HNA Tourism Group

    Several months into my first post at HNA Tourism, I was involved in organizing a Board of Directors meeting at a Swiss company that the HNA Group has recently acquired a majority stake in. The meeting in Zurich brought together seniormanagers from China, Europe and the Middle East, allowing me to test my ability to translate not only between different languages, but also between different corporate cultures. In many ways, the assignment in Zurich is representative of my overall experience at HNA Tourism: the learning curve is steep, the pace is fast, and the environment is highly supportive of young graduates and the various skills they bring to the table.

    The HNA Group and its various industry groups regularly organize training sessions for management trainees. I have, for instance, recently participated in a corporate culture workshop at the Group's headquarters, which among other activities also involved visits to an artificial island that HNA Holding is creating off the shores of Haikou and HNA Technics' aircraft maintenance hangars at Haikou Meilan Int'l Airport. Given the size and scope of the HNA Group's businesses, the most valuable aspect of the training sessions has been interacting with fellow management trainees who work in areas (such as green aviation or FinTech) I less often encounter in my daily work.

    You will be joining an ambitious Chinese conglomerate undergoing a rapid transition towards becoming a corporation that not only acts but also thinks globally. As individuals with broad international experience and a well-defined skillset, you will be sure to be given a multitude of opportunities. Welcome to the HNA Group!
