The top talent challenges faced by HR in APAC in 2019
Finding, retaining and developing talent – this has been identified as a top business challenge of 2019 among APAC organisations. According to HireRight’s latest 2019 APAC Employment Screening Benchmark Report, more than one-third (34%) of HR professionals surveyed in APAC cited this as one of their top three challenges, while maintaining a competitive edge (21%) and growing revenues (19%) came in as second and third respectively. From a talent acquisition point of view, the number one common challenge identified was creating an employment brand that attracts talent (25%), ahead of finding qualified job candidates (20%) and reducing employee turnover (19%). This falls in line with rising sentiments that employee headcounts will increase in the next one year – in fact a majority of respondents (83%) do expect to see a growth in their workforce in the coming 12 months, with close to half estimating an increase by at least 6%.
