Despite the conservative outlook, there is an increasing demand for specialised HR professionals across major key industries in Singapore.
Companies are actively looking to hire functional HR experts to add value and play strategic business partnering roles to attract the right candidates for the organisation and ensure that employees are highly-engaged. Those who have experience in the development of innovative talent management and acquisition initiatives will be highly sought-after, as companies need to ensure that they appeal to the right talent pool.
