Asia’s technology industry has seen challenges recently, between new attitudes to work, gradually worsening market conditions and a growing precariousness of tech jobs.
To keep morale high, employee engagement strategies tailored to tech talent are key, says world leading specialist in workforce solutions and recruitment, Hays.
Following the ‘Great Resignation’ and the ‘Great Reshuffling’, the latest buzzword reflecting people’s attitude to work is ‘quiet quitting’, in which employees actively choose to do the bare minimum required to stay employed, instead of going above and beyond at work to exceed expectations.
“The trend speaks to a major mindset change we’ve observed in working professionals that has come out of the pandemic,” Marc Burrage, Managing Director at Hays Asia says. “Many have been re-evaluating their priorities and relationship with work and are now actively drawing firmer boundaries between their work and personal lives.”
Despite this, workers in Asia continue to demonstrate high levels of motivation. Half (50%) of respondents in a recent survey conducted by Hays agreed that they felt motivated to exceed expectations at work. In contrast, only 16% disagreed, while 34% of respondents took a neutral position.
Yet, latest Hays research focused on the technology industry in Asia found that 68% of technology workers in Hong Kong said they were either actively job-seeking or open to opportunities.Click below to share this article
