2014 HR Survey Results – Malaysia
When we launched this survey we published it as a salary survey first and foremost, however after looking at the results and seeing some of the interesting data that has come as a result, I’ve realized that this is more of an HR trend analysis than it is a salary survey. The results on pay increases and bonuses are always useful but, for me anyway, it is the trends and demographic data that I have found particularly fascinating. In each country survey we have made comparisons with the global data that we have received, which should attempt to make the data ever more relevant for global HR leaders.
The specific HR trends for Malaysia pull up some great facts but if I have to pick a few highlights the main three would be:
1. The top sectors in Malaysia were IT/Telcos, Banking & Finance and Business Services.
2. While titles have been pretty similar and consistent globally, Malaysia was streets ahead in terms of having more Heads of HR than anywhere else in the world. 28% of the people who replied had a Head of HR title.
3. Transport allowances were highest in Malaysia with nearly one in every two people receiving this benefit.
The data provided is obviously just a sample of people that are known to us and while we might not know everyone, some of the insights are very valuable. I’ve never looked into trends like this globally before and hope this survey shows that as a business we are truly looking to add a greater value to the global HR community.
