Hiring trends in Indonesia
The job market is set to be relatively stable in 2018, with most hiring being driven by high growth areas such as fintech, general emerging technology companies and supply chain and logistics. Demand for well-rounded, tech-savvy local candidates fluent in both Bahasa Indonesia and English is set to continue. However, employers are likely to struggle with shortage of such local talent with international education and experience.
In light of this, our ‘Pulang Kampung’ campaign remains more relevant than ever in helping clients hire overseas-based Indonesians who are looking to return home. To boost their talent attraction and retention strategies, hiring managers are advised to be clear about expectations of candidates and be prepared to pay premium salaries to attract the right people.
