Randstad Malaysia has released the 2021 Market Outlook & Salary Snapshot Report that takes a detailed look at the economic climate and recruitment landscape in 2021. The annual report aims to provide companies and employers with local business and talent market intelligence to guide their long- term hiring strategy.

Jaya Dass, Managing Director for Randstad Malaysia and Singapore said, “Organisational technology readiness was a critical focus in 2020, and it will continue to be for the years to come. Companies’ increasing focus on digital transformation will drive talent demand and shape the local workforce in 2021. There will be demand for highly specialised talent, particularly in areas such as Internet of Things, software development, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, robotics, project migration and change management.”

“COVID-19 will continue to impact business and consumer confidence, and Malaysia’s growth will depend on both the recovery of global powerhouses and domestic market performance. With change and innovation as a constant, companies must stay agile and find new pockets of growth in 2021. As a global talent recruitment agency with a strong local market focus, it is important for us to start putting people to work so that we can achieve recovery and growth together,” Dass added.
