2013 China and Hong Kong Salary & Market Insight
Salary Survey reveals that as the economy grows, the attractiveness of the country to multi-nationals remains as strong as ever
31st March 2013 - The uncertainty that prevailed in the Northeast Asia region in 2011, caused by the volatile and unpredictable global economies and trading conditions, was gradually replaced during 2012 by a sense of increasing optimism, with the trend likely to continue in 2013 - according to a new report just released by leading recruitment experts Reed Specialist Recruitment.
According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, China is on the verge of becoming the largest economy in the world, and there is a large focus on recruiting staff both locally and internationally to cope with the demand.
The REED Salary and Market Insight report surveyed 906 employees and employers throughout China and Hong Kong, working in a variety of industry sectors and job levels.
The study found that 80% of professionals in mainland China and Hong Kong believe they are secure in their roles with 61% of all respondents expecting an increase in staffing levels during 2013.
The report also showed that along with the growing economy, staff also expect 2013 to bring a growth in salary levels, with 91% of those professionals surveyed expecting an increase at some level.
