How to attract and retain the right talent to grow your business internationally

three people at a business meeting

Asian companies are growing in international status and changing the global business landscape. However, companies that are used only to operating within Asia often struggle when working to expand across borders, specifically with regards to recruiting and retaining the global talent they need to grow their international footprint and keep one step ahead of the competition.

In this whitepaper we identify and analyse the human resources challenges faced by Asian companies looking to grow internationally. We also hear from the talent about their experiences and opinions on working for Asian businesses and recommend measures employers can take to optimise their ability to attract and retain the best people.

We hope the guidelines we provide can serve as a blueprint to help you equip your business to find the talent you need.

Key findings:
  • 70% of Asian companies in our survey stated they plan to internationalise their businesses in the coming three years. 
  • 57% of Asian firms stated the recruitment of international talent* is somewhat to very important to help them expand internationally.
  • 44% of Asian companies expect the volumes of headcount with international talent to increase in the next 12 months.
  • 62% of international talent rank local corporate culture as the top reason why they enjoy working in Asian firms.
