Robert Walters Global Salary Survey 2017


Acute demand for returning Filipinos in 2017    

The Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2017 has been released. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.


Hiring trends in the Philippines

In 2017, we anticipate growing hiring levels and continued candidate shortages, particularly for Filipino professionals returning from overseas. To attract and retain returning Filipinos, employers may need to increase salaries to align with their expectations. 

With organisations continuing to seek productivity gains, professionals with strong communication skills, commercial acumen and the ability to work as effective business partners will remain in demand.

We also believe that many established companies will focus on culture transformation and restructuring in 2017, heightening the need for HR practitioners with change management experience.
