As Zhou explained, private companies usually meet three major challenges: misjudging opportunity in the market, insufficient supply of talented poeple and loose bonding between employees.
"Party building is the most effective way of addressing these challenges," he said.
For private businesses, the Party's latest policies offer the biggest opportunities, he added, with the best example being the reform and opening-up policies which helped the company's owners to innovate.
"Party building activities will help to develop an advanced corporate culture and so the employees will be nurtured. In this way, companies need not worry so much about the shortage of talent," he said.
According to Zhou, Party building activities help private companies to realize their corporate social responsibilities.
"The companies' relationships with the government, society, shareholders, employees, partners, and customers will become smoother as a result of Party building activities. Plus the bonds between the employees will have also become closer," he said.
