While Technology organisations are gradually becoming a key driver of the growth of the recruitment market across Greater China, regulatory restrictions and a shortage of compound talent are surfacing many challenges in recruitment.
  • As digital transformation accelerates, how should recruitment strategy keep up with the latest trends?
  • How is the market demand for talent changing talent requirements?
  • What are the expectations of Technology professionals for the new workplace of future?
To answer these questions and more, Hays has released its inaugural 2022 Hays Greater China Salary Guide Technology Industry Supplement. The report is based on the insights from a survey of over 1,000 professionals across Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong SAR, along with the viewpoints of senior executives across a multitude of fields.
This report focuses on recruitment and salary trends in the top 5 Technology fields amidst digitisation. Key findings are as follows:
  • 80% of respondents expect salary increments in the year ahead. Bonuses are typically below 25% of salary   
  • Only 54% of respondents have enough time for professional development and learning
  • Shortage of talent with compound management and technical skills particularly in Data Security field
