Experis Named Best Overall Professional Talent Resourcing Company in Hong Kong

Experis Anchored in Asian Markets, Enabling Businesses to Meet Growing Demand for Hard-to-Find Professional Candidates

ManpowerGroup the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, has announced that Experis, the company's professional talent business, has been named the best overall professional resourcing company in Hong Kong at the Best Performance Company Awards 2012.

Experis was recognized for its deep industry expertise and unique understanding of workforce challenges, and for its leadership in accelerating the growth of companies by attracting and assessing highly specialized professionals across the IT, Finance and Engineering industries by Asian financial publication Capital Weekly. The prestigious professional talent resourcing award is the gold standard in recognizing talent recruitment leaders.

"Experis is at the forefront of sourcing Asian talent to meet growing demand, connecting hard-to-find talent to businesses that require their skills," said Lancy Chui, ManpowerGroup Hong Kong Managing Director. "Talent shortages are especially acute in the region and talent is more than just people — it is people with specific skills who help accelerate business growth. Experis finds the right fit and continually develops that talent."

Throughout the region, ManpowerGroup's 2012 annual Talent Shortage Survey found that employers are struggling to fill IT, Accounting, Finance, and Engineering positions. Engineers are particularly sought-after in Japan and IT professionals are proving elusive in Australia, where 81% and 50% of employers respectively across all industry sectors cannot source workers with the required skills.

ManpowerGroup's research revealed that over a third of Asia-Pacific employers (35%) cited a lack of available applicants or no applicants as the reason for their difficulty in filling jobs, 29% blamed a lack of technical competencies and 28% pointed to a lack of employability skills. In the Human Age, where talent is the new "it," there is nevertheless a growing mismatch between the skills available and the specific skills required by employers.

This scarcity of talent in the region will only increase as the region's economies grow ManpowerGroup has anticipated these challenges by evolving its professional resourcing and project-based workforce solutions organizations in five of Asia-Pacific operations — Australia, China, Hong Kong, India and Japan — to Experis. Consisting of expert recruiters recruiting experts in their field, Experis attracts the best professional candidates that allow businesses to flourish.
