Great news. A massive 93% of professionals in Hong Kong want to hear from you about job opportunities. That’s just one gem from our 2016 Hong Kong Talent Trends Report, which surveyed over 600 professionals in Hong Kong.
What’s more intersting for small and mid-sized businesses is that according to LinkedIn’s recent Hong Kong Talent Migration Trends Report, in 2015, 27% of those professionals who switched jobs from large enterprise companies actually moved to smaller businesses. This presents a clear opportunity to SMBs who want to capitalize on a skilled base of talent to grow or sustain their business.
For August LinkedIn WelcomeIn event, we'll walk you through insights from the two reports and more importantly, how each of the trends affects your organization. We will get to the bottom of why people change jobs, how they research new roles, and what channels they apply through.
For a sneak peak, here are 3 major Hong Kong talent trends you should know about:
- While 93% professionals want to hear about new job opportunities, only 33% are actively searching for new roles
- Candidates are most interested in learning about your company’s culture and values
- The top ways professionals land a new job are through headhunters, employee referrals, third-party career websites, and professional social networks
You’ll walk away with a clear understanding on how SMBs should leverage the unique opportunity to tap into this talent pool to hire previously elusive enterprise talent, and strategies to attract the best candidates in the era of social media.
