Hong Kong Salary Benchmark 2020 Country Insights: Business unite around Hong Kong bounce-back


On behalf of Michael Page, I am delighted to welcome our partners to the latest Salary Benchmark report for Hong Kong, as well as to express my excitement for the new decade, particularly in a city with such immense talent potential.

Recent times have clearly been tough, and it is important to acknowledge the fact that Hong Kong has changed. Throughout the turbulence, Michael Page has kept its focus on strong partnerships. We have spent a lot of time helping our teams and partners remain positive and enabled. As ever, our primary concern is helping our clients change lives; by realising their expansion plans through astute hiring moves.

Digital transformation remains the topic of the moment for businesses. Particularly, we see enormous potential for Financial Services as fintech and cryptocurrency-based companies grow fast, leveraging on Hong Kong’s powerful strategic location. Even while things have been slower on the retail front, e-commerce remains bullish, with businesses finding innovative means to reach and engage with customers.

In terms of competitiveness, the Hong Kong business fundamentals continue to show positive signs. In its annual Global Competitiveness Report released in late 2019, World Economic Forum put Hong Kong third overall globally, rising four places — and enjoying perfect marks for macroeconomic stability and health, with a 10-year average annual GDP growth at a healthy 3%. High-demand profiles include candidates with strong service sector experience, as well as those skilled in data analytics, technology, business development and FMCG sectors.
