Top 5 countries where Singaporean companies are hiring from
According to a study, SG remains eager to hire internationally amidst a talent crunch.
Apart from the Philippines and India, Singapore companies would often hire from the United States (11%), Indonesia (6%(, and Canada (4%), according to Deel, a global compliance and payroll solution provider.
Foreign talents would often be hired for roles such as Virtual Assistance (26%), Software Engineers (22%), Software Developers (10%), Content Writers (9%) and Community Managers (8%).
“As remote and hybrid working models continue to operate as the norm in the age of the global endemic, companies are now enabled to hire outside of higher-cost countries to secure quality talent and alleviate the stresses arising from the dearth of qualified candidates,” Deel said.
“This shift has also helped prospective employees to find better opportunities, with salaries on the rise in many developing economies,” the provider added.
Meanwhile, Deel’s study also found that Singapore talent is likewise sought after by companies across the globe, particularly in the US, the United Kingdom, Canada, Israel and the Virgin Islands.
