Our outlook for 2022 in Malaysia

Welcome to the digital Robert Walters Salary Survey. As businesses have adapted to the new world of work, Malaysia’s hiring market has strongly rebounded in 2021. This was seen across all sectors, from financial services and consumer segments to healthcare and manufacturing.

As more and more companies are going into automation and implementing digital initiatives, we can expect a lot of hiring activity around technology and transformation. Similarly, professionals with experience in data analytics, ESG and sustainability initiatives will be highly sought after.

We expect robust recruitment activity to continue in 2022 and hiring managers are expected to be more prompt in decision making to avoid losing good candidates over their competitors. Meanwhile, flexibility in work arrangements and clear career progression will remain to be major considerations for professionals looking to move jobs.

Our outlook for 2022 in South East Asia

Hiring saw a rapid rebound in the first half of 2021, which was sustained for the rest of the year in most markets. Across sectors, manufacturing has been affected significantly due to the rise of the covid-19 variants. However, digital and tech experienced the greatest boost in hiring, accelerated by digital transformation initiatives of many companies across all sectors. 

Moving into 2022, the hiring market is likely to cool down slightly after the hectic boom in 2021. Countries that have come out of lockdowns may see attrition rates go up and employees changing jobs.

With tech and transformation expected to experience continued rapid growth, companies will be looking for skill sets in 5G rollouts, data analytics, and blockchain. Even traditional industries are focusing on growing their tech-focused services, and this will see a rise in demand for skills in edtech, health tech, and automation in manufacturing.
