Employees In Thailand Seek Non-monetary Benefits In Jobs



With more in-demand jobs in Thailand shifting to a fully-fledged digital era, more employees are demanding a richer quality of life in addition to monetary remuneration, such as flexible working hours and hybrid work arrangements.

Duangporn Phrom-on, Managing Director of Jobs DB (Thailand) Recruitment Company, discussed findings from the Global Talent Survey, with an emphasis on six Southeast Asian nations and the changing demands of their labour markets. Digital data management, analysis, and artificial intelligence were the top five in-demand positions in the region, followed by media, art, and design, service and hospitality, financial services, and health and social services.

While these professions coincide with Thailand’s progress towards a fully-fledged digital era, and companies are looking for skilled people who fit the bill, employees, according to Phrom-on, are looking for work that provides a higher quality of life in addition to financial remuneration.

Work-life balance (77%), positions with growth prospects (55%), and opportunities for a successful business are the top three driving elements that influence their selections about where to work.

“The primary factors that result in an immediate rejection of a job are the financial package and work-life balance,” she went on to say.  These variables, she continued, are equally important in selecting whether or not to accept a job offer. Businesses that want to recruit candidates must make attractive offerings, such as competitive salary, perks, and prospects for promotion.

The job application experience, the efficiency of the selection process, and the usage of engaging methods and channels all play a big role in influencing job seekers, with more than half of respondents preferring a smooth and timely recruiting process. However, a negative experience was cited as a major reason for rejecting an otherwise appealing employment offer by more than one-third of respondents (35%).

“It is critical to give job applicants the necessary space and time to make decisions.” “It’s also important not to think of the recruitment process as ending at the job offer stage,” the Managing Director remarked, according to The National.
