4 in 5 young employees would pursue overseas remote jobs

For older generations, the appetite for overseas jobs however isn’t as attractive.

Four in five employees aged 18 to 24 are open to taking on overseas jobs that can be performed remotely in Singapore, Randstad’s H2 2021 Workmonitor survey showed.

The appetite for overseas remote jobs however was only seen in half of the employees surveyed that were aged 55 to 67.

According to Jaya Dass, managing director for Randstad Singapore, the reason why younger generations are more attracted to internal remote jobs than older generations is that the former grew up in a globalised world and embraces the rewards and challenges of cultural exchanges.

“Furthermore, in the early stages of their careers and lives, they want to explore as many opportunities as they can before settling down permanently,” Dass added.

To respond to employees’ desire for global exposure, Dass said companies can look to offer their employees job rotations, overseas deployments, or participation in regional and global projects.
