2022 Salary Guide

With the pandemic receding, organisations in Asia are progressively navigating a return to growth in 2022.
Yet, concerns about skills shortages are coming to the fore as business activity increases across the region, raising uncertainties and questions around:
  • How active will the recruitment market be in 2022?
  • What are some of the challenges and opportunities awaiting key sectors?
  • Which are the positions and roles with the highest salary increases?
  • What do jobseekers think about the current work environment, and what are their plans for their career trajectory?
