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.”
