Robert Walters Global Salary Survey


A positive year for recruitment in 2016

The Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2016 has been released. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.

Hiring trends in Vietnam

The trend for recruiting returning Vietnamese professionals will continue in 2016. Hiring these internationally experienced candidates will help hiring managers begin to close the experience gap between candidates required for middle management positions as well as those for more senior roles. This, in turn, will assist companies to develop solid succession planning strategies by recruiting high-potential candidates capable of moving to the very top levels of the company. 

There is no sign of inward investment slowing down and we expect new businesses to continue entering the market during 2016. We also anticipate that many already established companies will run transformational and restructuring programmes, heightening demand for HR practitioners with change management experience, for example.
