“This is up 6 per­cent on the pre­vi­ous year, show­ing em­ploy­ers are more com­monly look­ing for in­no­va­tive staffing solutions,” Hays said.

The guide, based on a sur­vey of more than 3,000 em­ploy­ers across the Chi­nese main­land, Hong Kong, Ja­pan, Malaysia and Sin­ga­pore that rep­re­sents over 6 mil­lion em­ploy­ees, shows 19 per­cent of or­ga­ni­za­tions plan to in­crease their use of temporary and con­tract staff this year.
