With no end in sight for the coronavirus, many companies are still freezing hiring and reducing labour and human resource management costs. However, as this situation becomes the "new normal," it is not possible to remain in a state of restraint forever. The number of job openings at companies is gradually beginning to return, and we can assume that hiring activities will become more active this fiscal year as a reaction to the previous restraint on hiring. It can be said that companies are required to invest in human resources in order to reduce labour costs and secure talents more strategically.

In this webinar, we will discuss the latest HR landscape in Malaysia and explain what you need to do to prepare for the upcoming competition for talents based on the results of Mercer and JAC Recruitment research in the talent and rewards space . This session will provide an opportunity to gather information and gains perspectives for formulating HR strategies.
