2022 Salary Guide main body


With the pandemic receding, organisations in Asia are progressively navigating a return to growth in 2022.
Traditional revenue streams had been adversely affected in 2021, resulting in a downward trajectory for recruitment and market salaries. Many major businesses in Asian nations, including China, Hong Kong and Singapore, turned to the latest technological advancements to combat the impact the pandemic had on local and international markets, while employees looked to supplement their salaries as working from home became the new normal. 
Even though companies in Hong Kong and Asia emerged from an unpredictable 2021 and have shown positive signals in 2022, the Hays market salary guide will address unabating concerns about skills shortages that are coming to the fore as business activity increases across the region. Given the tumultuous storm businesses in the continent have had to weather, the salary guide will delve deep into the increasing uncertainties and questions companies in HK and throughout Asia have around a diverse range of topics, including:

●    How active will the recruitment market be in 2022?
●    What are some of the challenges and opportunities awaiting key sectors?
●    Which positions and roles in the market offer the highest salary increases?
●    What do jobseekers think about the current work environment, and what are their plans for their career trajectory?

Find the answers to these questions and more in the 2022 Hays Asia Salary Guide. Get crucial information on the latest market and sector overviews, along with insights from a survey of over 9000 employers and professionals across China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore that will enable you to navigate the new world of work more effectively in the year ahead.
