Human resources practitioners in Hong Kong are finding it extremely difficult – if not impossible – to identify employee benefits in other jurisdictions across the region.

Aspects such as tax breaks for both local and expatriate staff, pension structures and employment law are identified as key areas where there is a knowledge gap.

For example, one Hong Kong-founded logistics company Human Resources talked to that is expanding into Thailand, Malaysia and Myanmar expressed dismay at the challenge of accurately gauging how to structure employee benefits – such as tax breaks – in those countries due to language difficulties and the challenge of trying to decipher local legislation.

Another Hong Kong HR professional at an international professional learning company spoke of the challenge of finding out more on HR practices in Japan and South Korea. While another spoke of the difficulty of trying to recruit top talent from China.

Finding information about HR-related issues in other parts of Asia can be a daunting task. So how do you go about filling the knowledge gap?

Please take a few minutes to complete the short poll below on the countries that you and your organisation want to know more about. Human Resources will publish the findings and also look to provide you with more articles and knowledge about those countries.

Of these countries, which ones do you want to know more about their HR practices?
