“Adecco Retail opens in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan”
SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Adecco Asia has today announced the launch of a regional network of offices that will provide staffing and recruitment services to Asia’s fast growing luxury retail sector. Adecco operations in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan — all wholly owned subsidiaries of the world’s leading HR company — The Adecco Group — will leverage on existing relationships and create new partnerships with brands involved in the exclusive and expanding luxury retail sector in Asia.
The launch of a specialty recruitment business in the luxury retail sector is timely for Adecco, with Asia being one of the world’s most important markets for luxury brand purchases — due in part to increasing consumer affluence in the region’s emerging markets. Indeed, the fastest global growth in luxury goods sales in 2013 is expected to be seen in South East Asia — with analysts predicting a 20% increase.
Adecco subsidiaries in Asia have supported the retail sector since 1984, when the organisation first established operations in the region. The company’s ability to effectively recruit boutique store managers and other key retail personnel, prompted its recent decision to further segment this sector to be able to quickly identify talent to match to roles with the world’s leading luxury brands with a presence in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.
“As we continue to see luxury boutiques opening across the Asia region, it is evident that the brands that can identify the best talent will have the opportunity to grow the fastest. With the talent crunch that exists in many regional markets, those organisations that are highly focused on both recruitment and effective employee retention will clearly have an edge. In Asia, Adecco has already been successful in supporting recruitment initiatives in this area and by establishing a niche specialty business, will play an even greater role in how this sector develops across the region”, commented Christophe Duchatellier, CEO, Adecco Asia.
