Robert Walters Thailand was recently invited on Money Channel, one of Thailand’s leading 24-hour broadcasting news channels, to share our insights on how companies looking to expand globally can attract and retain talent with international experience.
We shared that 70% of the Asian companies plan to internationalise their business within the next three years. This was based on a survey conducted with over 5,000 HR professionals, hiring managers and candidates working in Asian and Western companies across Mainland China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam. For Thailand, we found that 62.5% of companies plan to expand into international markets within the next three years.
Punyanuch Sirisawadwattana, Director of Commerce, HR, Banking & IT, Robert Walters Thailand added, “We see that a large number of companies are looking to globalise. To make this an effective and efficient process, they are looking to hire talents with international experience. This international experience can be built through working overseas or in multinational companies in their home countries. This group of people will add value to companies as they have experience working in an international environment and can offer knowledge of the local market; be it about law, regulations or even the culture.”

Robert Walters Singapore launched the 2018 Salary Survey – Greater China and South East Asia on the 23rd of November 2017. Now in its nineteenth edition, it is the most comprehensive review of professional salaries and recruitment trends around the world.
Held at Grand Hyatt Singapore, the launch was graced by the media and featured Toby Fowlston, Managing Director for Southeast Asia, Robert Walters.
It was presented that despite varied country settings, digitalisation continued to be a key priority across most markets. The survey noted that this is mainly driven by a rapidly growing younger population and increased consumerism. Toby said, “The digitalisation trend that is sweeping the region has spurred many businesses to create online or mobile platforms as companies seek to enhance their competitiveness and increase market share with the consumers. As a result of these transformations, many companies were looking to hire professionals with digital expertise, across both marketing and information technology (IT), especially those who are proficient in running back office digital infrastructure or with niche technology skills.”
