After Taiwan and Mainland China joined the WTO, the cross-strait economy further fused into the world economic system. The opening of the “Three Links” policy gradually deepened cross-strait economic and trade relations. The competitive advantages in Mainland China, as compared to Taiwan, and the aggressive investment opportunities around China, have attracted Taiwanese businesses. In recent years, many industries, both traditional and high-tech, have relocated to Mainland China. This study aims to probe the differences in employee playfulness and creativity in the high-tech industries in Taiwan and Mainland-China. Through the literature review, empirical research methods and assessment on a case-by-case basis, the study found significant differences in employee playfulness and creativity between cross-strait employees. The playfulness qualities and creativity averages of employees in China were higher than those of Taiwanese employees.
