Executive Headhunting Outlook in the Philippines

We want the Philippines to be a great place to set-up and run a company, supported by the very talent that the business world has to offer.

The Philippines has developed a rich start-up culture, with the Department of Trade and Industry reporting over 200 active start-ups in the country in 2021. This growth will be supported and sustained by the brightest executive minds in the technology space that can navigate the challenges of competing in the global marketplace.

Further in the digital space, a 2022 report found critical skills shortages in cyber security, with other digital skills and associated leadership capability not far behind. Information technology will continue to a global skill shortage area, but with a specific concern the Philippines for attracting this executive leadership talent to our shores.

In Engineering, Architecture, and Construction, the Philippine Department of Labor and Employment also reports skills shortage of over one million workers. Companies in these sectors will be seeking to build long-term resourcing plans, with a critical factor being having the right executive talent to strategize and lead their companies through these resourcing bottlenecks and developing new opportunities.

What all these talent shortages have in common, is that building strong executive teams to navigate through these challenges and develop resilient organizations will be a key factor for companies in the Philippines to grow and compete, both domestically and internationally.
