It’s never been more difficult to find the right talent says report

According to new research, finding, developing and retaining staff has been one of the most significant business challenges in 2019.

Over the past year, HR managers from across the Asia Pacific region have outlined recruitment as the most significant business challenge, ranking more important than growing revenue or defining strategy.

The 2019 APAC Employment Screening Benchmark Report (which polled more than 600 organisations in the Asia Pacific region) found that there is an increasing amount of pressure to hire top talent.

With four in five organisations predicting expansion in 2020, signs are pointing to executives and their EAs having to increase their focus on recruitment and retention in the coming year.
