Hong Kong recruitment outlook 2018
With Hong Kong’s GDP predicted to expand conservatively in 2018 by 2.8%, we expect the strong hiring activity we saw in the third and fourth quarters of 2017 to continue across a range of roles and industries.
In order to cope with regulatory and technological changes in various industries, interim and contract roles will continue to increase in popularity as employers across industries look to hire people capable of managing significant change management projects.
The war for technology talent will continue across industries, potentially leading to more hiring of overseas talent into Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Government’s increased focus on cyber security regulations should have a strong impact on the IT job market.
Mainland Chinese companies will continue to invest and set up in Hong Kong, giving them a platform from which to invest overseas. Chinese banks are also now playing a more dominant role in the Hong Kong IPO market and this trend will surely continue apace in 2018. We expect Hong based securities firms to continue hiring talent with strong client networks in the mainland.

Enhancing your brand through Gemini’s Outplacement Service
Layoffs are inevitable. Even during economic boom, companies may retire product lines, relocate business units or rebalance capabilities leading to reductions in workforce.
In Hong Kong and across Asia today, more and more companies are using outplacement services in order to both take care of their employees and protect their brand in such situations. 
Making staff redundant is a difficult process for all involved. Providing career transition services to employees is a proven method of making a positive difference to impacted employees. It helps soften the blow, gets them into new employment quicker and improves the reputation of your company as an employer that cares about its people.

If you wish to learn more about our outplacement services at Gemini, please don’t hesitate to reach out on +852 3552 9100 or email us at consulting@gemini.com.hk.
