Examining Recruitment Trends in the Asia-Pacific Region
As the economies of nations in the Asia-Pacific region have experienced explosive growth in recent years, there are specific trends that are impacting the ability to establish an effective recruitment operation in those countries. With the high speed of growth in these emerging markets, nations such as China, Japan, India and even Australia are transforming from agrarian to modern, industrialized societies. The challenge for organizations expanding in these regions is to effectively recruit the talent required to sustain such significant global workforce growth.
The low cost of labor markets in these regions has attracted a diverse range of companies and organizations looking to invest in the Asia- Pacific region. One obvious trend occurring within this region is the types of companies that are investing and expanding their resources and operations. Specifically, there are three types of organizations that are expanding considerably in Asia-Pac: companies seeking to break into the market, companies seeking to grow existing operations, and companies that are part of multinational operations, but act autonomously.
