SINGAPORE, Aug, 10 2018 - (Media OutReach) - Technology companies across Asia-Pacific are reporting more optimistic hiring plans, according to new data from Radford, a division of Aon plc (NYSE: AON).
The percentage of technology companies reporting aggressive hiring plans - defined as actively planning and recruiting for organisational growth - increased in Q2 2018 from the prior quarter in six out of eight key markets in Asia-Pacific.
In Singapore, the percentage of technology companies that plan to hire aggressively in Q2 increased to 4.4% compared to 3.4% in the previous quarter. Australia reported the highest aggressive hiring plan across the region at 6.9%.
Percentage of Technology Companies Reporting Aggressive Hiring Plans
Meanwhile, voluntary employee turnover - another key metric on the health of the overall technology sector - remains high in most markets. Radford typically views voluntary turnover above 10% to be a concern that warrants further examination from companies.
Voluntary employee turnover was highest in Australia at 12.8% followed by India (12.7%), China (12.4%) and Singapore (12%).

Advice for Retaining Talent
Technology companies need to work especially hard to retain their top talent to fuel anticipated growth. Companies must first think about the types of rewards that are most important to their employees, particularly those that are seen as differentiating and reinforcing company culture. Then, companies should target those rewards at a competitive market point.
This is especially important for certain in-demand job functions in the technology sector. These are often jobs that involve the most cutting-edge technology, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Alexander Krasavin, Partner and Radford Leader for Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa says: "The technology market across Asia-Pacific is strong as we head into the second half of the year. To support rapid hiring plans, companies must leverage both pay and non-monetary rewards. These can include perks that promote greater work/life balance, peer-to-peer recognition awards and internal mobility programs."
