Going Global

The Covid-19 pandemic has greatly impacted many businesses in Singapore and globally over the past over two years. It is only in recent months that the countries around the world are gradually opening up their borders, in part due to high vaccination rates and the need to focus on reviving business growth despite the current uncertain times and geopolitical instability.

Given such a challenging economic and geopolitical backdrop, as well as the increasing importance of digitalisation to drive business growth, efficiency, and productivity, how can Singapore companies still take their brands beyond the Singapore borders to new target markets?

Discover valuable and useful insights into how Singapore businesses can find channels of growth in global markets for their brands and learn what digital resources are available to support their overseas growth efforts.

Opportunities or Crisis: The Great Resignation

Mar 09, 2022

A Microsoft survey shows that 49% of employees in Singapore are thinking of quitting this year, citing reasons such as leaders being out of touch and workforce exhaustion. Whilst intention to leave does not always translate to actual resignation, it does suggest that engagement levels are low.

An energized and engaged workforce results in employees being proactive, going the extra mile and being creative in finding new solutions. All these translate to higher performance, speed and business results. Engagement also creates savings in turnover costs, estimated to be 200% to 400% of the annual salary in replacement costs. It is every leader’s job to retain, engage and develop their people.
