Julian Meissner, Manager - Tech & Transformation Division at Robert Walters Thailand shared five learnings from the tech e-guide - Five Lessons in Tackling the Tech Talent Shortage. These lessons were put together based on interviews with nine individuals, including business leaders, tech hiring managers and HR professionals, from companies across South East Asia. Additionally, Robert Walters conducted a survey with nearly 400 technology professionals and hiring managers across South East Asia.

There are five main lessons outlined in the guidebook:

  1. Go the extra mile
  2. Bring the meaning back to benefits
  3. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts
  4. Encourage 360 learning 
  5. From the top
