    The biggest challenge we have with headcount is the lack of incoming hires... pre-protests and pandemic, 30% of our new hires came from overseas, including from up north. Now it's probably less than 3%.
    Were these experienced hires? Is the job market really that tight at the moment for hiring experienced professionals?

    Numbers dont lie and the amount of people leaving compared to those arriving with pets is around 20-1 this year with around 80% being BNO to UK.

    (in response to tothemoon above)

    Presumably the new hires are from the mainland?

    For the reason of self-interest, I'd love to know the details too.

    I dont find them as we are a pet transportation company and we dont need to publish them.

    this can obviously be interpreted as twenty isolated cases of people taking their pets to England with them for short term student exchanges, while millions of other people with pets are flooding to Hong Kong, but have patronised an unnamed rival company…

    …Oops, I am practising for my interview for government spokesperson. Apologies!

    I can see a clear trend over the past few months in my office that people from western countries are throwing in the towel. Basically they went back this summer to Europe realized how nice it is and came back to HK realizing how not nice it is. Some people with kids were in the opposite situation, due to quarantine rules for small kids they could not go back and with no end in sight, the towel was again thrown in.

    This trend is stronger than locals relocating to UK etc, which happened a bit earlier this year (in fairly small numbers in my bank).
    The trend is very clear in my office. People haven't moved altogether but most are looking for other options, change to short-term rent, or wait for the current leases to expire.

    Sounds like no trend at all, except a lot of things brewing ready to explode..

    Joined a major international company a few months ago… so many expats are leaving - either just quitting or transferring to other countries. Also, there’s major difficulties at the moment trying to hire replacements. Hiring proces taking months and all candidates pulling out because they have accepted jobs elsewhere.
