She gave an informative presentation on HR in terms of digitalisation while Gerrit Bouckaert, Country Manager of Robert Walters Thailand & Vietnam summarised Thailand’s top hiring trends and shed light on 2018’s most in-demand skills. 

Gerrit explained that in 2018, hiring is expected to remain stable, and while certain variables exist in the market, the climate in general is seen as positive. 

“There is no question that hiring managers need to look at a range of options to bring out the best in people and maximise their potential, whether it be unique training programs, flexible working schedules, or the possibility for international work opportunities. Hiring processes need to be quick and efficient, and career progression plans laid out very clearly. It is a definite given that in this environment, attracting and keeping the best talent needs to be fully planned for.”

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.”
