Hiring in Human Resources (Eastern Seaboard): Market recovery drives active hiring of HR professionals

In 2022, market recovery prompted significant job movements in Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard as many companies resumed hiring. There was an abundance of job opportunities for HR professionals as new businesses entered the country and some expatriates left their positions during the covid-19 pandemic, according to Natiya Saul, Director of Sales & Marketing and Eastern Seaboard Operations, Robert Walters Thailand.

“With higher demand from commercial functions, the pressure on HR professionals also prompted some of them to look for new opportunities in organisations that were better suited to their needs and career goals,” she adds.

Read on as Natiya shares her expectations of the labour market and hiring trends in 2023, with a focus on HR professionals on the Eastern Seaboard. 

Hiring demand strong for HR professionals

In 2023, hybrid roles will be in high demand as companies will seek to hire skilled HR professionals capable of both strategic and operational work. HR talent with strong business acumen and good understanding of talent management to meet organisational goals will be sought after. 

Natiya shares, “Companies will be looking to hire HR professionals with strong leadership skills for long-term career growth and retention strategies,” as talent retention grows in prominence. In line with that, there will be increased demand for skillsets in learning and development, employee relations, and strategic workforce planning. 

Prioritise recognition and career development to retain talent

Natiya recommends that companies ensure they value and recognise HR professionals, as they are in a support function that is essential to the business.

Many HR professionals leave for other jobs due to a lack of growth opportunities. Natiya observes, “Most of the time, they are unable to grow within the organisation as long-term career development plans are not clear and they are swarmed with operational work.”

Companies should prioritise relooking into career development plans and growth to retain HR professionals, as skilled talent will have no qualms leaving for better opportunities offered by a recovering market in 2023.

Value and recognise HR professionals, as they are essential to any business.
 

Higher salaries for HR talent in 2023

In a candidate-driven market, salaries of HR professionals will grow in 2023. Job movers will be able to garner rises of 20-25%.
