Rising demand for tech and tech skills

The demand for tech talent is rising as we move firmly into the digital age. Companies need people trained in cloud engineering, cybersecurity, and automation. Talent with these tech skills help companies speed up labour-intensive processes and set up adequate software measures for work-from-home practices.

But there are barriers to hiring the tech talent you need in Singapore. Being able to afford these developers and tech talent, especially for startups, might be a financial nightmare. Singapore’s talent pool is also small, leading to the government launching Tech@SG in 2019 to better endorse companies and individuals in hiring tech talent.

Remote hiring could be your solution

So what do we do when we need new hires, but the local talent pool is too small? This is where remote hiring comes in.

Put simply, a remote team is a working group, either tech or non-tech, that work in other parts of the world separate from the home office or base of operations.

This ebook will take you through how to build your tech team by hiring remotely, including the pros and cons, strategies to strengthen your remote teams, and advice straight from the experts themselves.
