get ahead in the race for top talent

According to our Talent Trends research, 84% of human capital leaders in Singapore say that talent acquisition is one of their business leaders’ top priorities. It’s no surprise why. 

Talent is how your company innovates, grows, cares for customers and sells. People are how your organisation realises its purpose. They are your competitive advantage. 

At the same time, the skills gap and talent scarcity are standing in your way. In fact, 86% of human capital and C-suite leaders in Singapore say the skills gap is worsening and will lead to even greater challenges in the future. 

On the other hand, 75% of working professionals say their expectations of employers are continually evolving. As the city-state continues to transform itself into a Smart Nation by building an economy powered by digital innovation, the competition for skilled professionals, especially those with digital skills, will only continue to grow. Do you know what your target talent wants, and how can you attract and retain them?
