KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Robert Walters, an international recruitment consultancy, says government initiatives have boosted job creation in the country. In a report titled, “Asia Job Index for Q4 2014”, it said Malaysia was one of the fastest progressing markets in Southeast Asia and government initiatives to strengthen infrastructure and increase business operational efficiency continued to attract multinationals to the country.
“This explains the encouraging increases in job advertising volumes we have seen across 2014 with companies continuously trying to reach out to top talents in the market.
“In order to ensure further growth, hiring managers are producing very strong retention strategies to hold on to their best performers,” said Robert Walters Malaysia Managing Director Sally Raj in a statement.
She said among the key findings were new shopping malls and the entrance of more international brands created a strong 31 per cent increase over 2013 for retail job advertising particularly in the luxury and mass labels markets.A
