In this time of global economic upheaval and uncertainty, the common question asked around town is, "what does it mean to me?" In this October newsletter we try to answer some of these questions with commentary from eminent people like Gerry Harvey CEO of Harvey Norman, Gary Wright CEO of BISS Research, as well as Steve Parker Managing Director Unisys China.
The bottom line is that there are still serious skill shortages and that these shortages may even affect the rate of recovery. The Chinese employment market may see some sector specific fluctuations but in the main should stay relatively stable. Market conditions may even potentially favour and uptake of contract personnel providing clients with greater flexibility and reduced risk.
This issue also provides a quick update on Freelancing.hk and current the initiatives underway, comment on the ongoing battle for companies to hire quality staff ‘the war for talent’ and a short article from one of our freelancers as well as the obligatory bad joke totally useless facts.
