Remote staffing in Singapore refers to the employment of professionals residing in Singapore by organisations based in other parts of the world. As these firms typically do not have an office set up in Singapore, employees hired under the remote staffing model will work outside of a traditional office environment.
With a well-developed digital communications infrastructure, professionals in Singapore enjoy a conducive environment to work remotely. Driven by the recent shift in perception of remote work arrangements, talents in Singapore are accustomed and even welcoming of this new work option.
Singapore, known as the Little Red Dot, has a limited workforce, but it has also traditionally been known for offering a skilled talent pool. In the last decades, the Singapore government has strengthened its efforts in growing and nurturing larger skilled professionals. More recently, Singapore ranks 1st in Asia-Pacific and 3rd worldwide in the INSEAD Global Talent Competitiveness Index. Being one of the few Asian countries to make it to the top ten, Singapore is known to be a great talent hub for workers with strong regional experience.
Also known for its strategic geographical location, Singapore is a sweet spot for companies that are looking to expand into the Asia market. However, due to the high rental cost and regulatory requirements, setting up an office in Singapore can be both expensive and complex. Therefore, remote staffing in Singapore serves as a revolutionary and key strategy for firms based outside of Singapore to hire top talents without setting up a legal entity here.
Remote staffing in Singapore has proven to be particularly effective for all types of companies, ranging from start-ups to MNCs
Singapore offers a highly skilled and cosmopolitan labour force. The Singapore government is also proactive in ensuring that the local workforce is up-to-date with skills needed in various job functions. Hire local employees who have updated skillsets and future-ready capabilities, which enhances company productivity.
Remote staffing in Singapore is adopted as a strategic cost-cutting measure for many organisations. Without incurring the cost and risks of setting up a physical office in Singapore, companies are able to tap on qualified talents to achieve greater overall success for the company.
Asia’s market holds enormous promise for businesses but navigating the market to unlock these opportunities might not be as easy. Hiring talents in Singapore enable firms to blend local leaders with market knowledge. They provide a path to success for companies’ attempt to scale regionally.
