Demand For Hybrid Skills To Rise In SE Asia In 2020

Hybrid skills, “glocal” talent, and potential and transferable skills will be in high demand in the Philippines and Southeast Asia by 2020 as more firms move towards digitalization, according to a report from global recruitment group Robert Walters. The England-based group, with regional offices in Southeast Asia, said digital transformation will drive demand for risk and compliance professionals, as companies seek to address evolving regulatory requirements across the region due to growth in digital banking, fintech, and digital payment solutions.
