Nearly half of job offerings in the Philippines posted higher salaries to lure talents during the second year of the pandemic, employment tracker JobStreet Philippines said, as more companies ramp up hiring programs in 2022.
Employers are paying more attention to the soft skills and technological know-how of job seekers this year as the hybrid work model--a mix of work-from-home and office reporting--becomes the default work setup, said JobStreet Philippines country manager Philip Gioca. "It’s not the technical know-how but it’s more of the soft skills that companies are demanding now," he told reporters.
