“Even though 2021 was not without its problems, businesses and employees in Singapore remained steadfast and maintained the course throughout the year,” according to the Randstad Singapore 2022 Market Outlook & Salary Snapshot Report. The labor market has switched from employer-driven to candidate-driven since Q1 of 2021, indicating a major recovery in the business and recruitment markets in 2022, which we can all look forward to.”

Many leading employers in Singapore are pushing for talent development and industrial expansion as a result of the growing focus on digitization.
Technology that is digital
In addition to being a demanding year, 2021 was also a fruitful year for Singapore’s tech industry.
The pandemic of COVID-19 prompted a shift to the digital platform, resulting in considerable growth in fields like data analytics, cloud computing, cybersecurity, e-commerce, and software-as-a-service (SaaS).
Manufacturing, a major foundation of the Singaporean economy, rose by 10.3 percent between 2019 and 2020, contributing 21.5 percent to Singapore’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
Financial Services & Banking
Throughout the economic impact of the epidemic, Singapore’s financial services sector has proven to be resilient.
The Singapore Monetary Authority (MAS) expects the banking industry to do well in 2022.
The digital transformation is reshaping the insurance business in Singapore, with the transition to online customer portfolios.
Customers’ wants are being predicted using new technology, and processes and products are being developed appropriately.
Companies in the insurance business are now focusing on creating as many touchpoints as possible in order to increase engagement opportunities.
