Our highly experienced Asia Pacific team can navigate the complex needs of this vast region, which contains some of the world’s most challenging environments. Asia is home to nearly half of the world’s poorest people, and it’s estimated climate change will drive 68-132 million more people into poverty by 2030. As the economy in the Asia Pacific region evolves, the growth of the urban poor presents a real and growing issue for the continent.
Leadership issues continue to be the top HR trends in Asia, with many organisations prioritising management and talent acquisition in order to support and implement their objectives. With a younger demographic continuing to form a large part of the workforce, the advancement of digital technology and innovation is taking an ever more critical role in organisations staying competitive and retaining the best possible talent. It is becoming increasingly important for forward-thinking organisations to look at innovative leadership models, organisational redesign and employee-centred cultures.
