Singapore has consistently ranked among the best in the world when it comes to facilitating remote work – ranking ninth in both NordLayer rankings Global Remote Work Index and Workmotion The cities that best facilitate remote working over the past two years.

Each of the indexes assessed a host of factors to build their lists, including remote work compliance, cost of living, civic infrastructure, livability, digital security, socio-economic attractiveness, physical comfort and digital, as well as the response to COVID-19.

The inclusion of Singapore as the only Asian market to feature in the top 10 is significant as it emerges from the pandemic as a highly attractive location for businesses and employees. From its quick and effective COVID-19 response to the reopening of its borders and the adoption of remote working by businesses, it has left many of its previous regional competitors hanging in the dust.

The pandemic has not only played a significant role in cementing Singapore’s prominence on the global stage, but it has also brought about significant changes in employee well-being, mental health discussions and, more broadly, people around the world reassessing what they expect from work and their jobs. Words like “remote,” “flexibility,” and “workcation” are now commonplace in the HR lexicon.

As these trends shift from benefits to entitlements, expect to see more companies focus on the employee experience as the “big quit” makes it increasingly difficult to attract and retain talent.

Singapore’s national policies and workforce landscape continue to give businesses a head start when it comes to attracting talent to the region. For this, companies will now have to offer a more holistic experience to their employees, especially when it comes to well-being.

Whether it’s a permanent relocation, conference or internship, ensuring your employees are safe and healthy is now paramount for businesses. Selecting a residence that mimics these values ​​should be at the top of your list, whether you are developing a corporate housing policy for your incoming expats or relocating clients, or you are considering moving to the ” Lion City”.
