As economic growth is expected to moderate in 2020, Singaporeans are turning to businesses to fill that gap.

According to Randstad’s Workmonitor 2019 Q4 results, 60% of Singapore-based respondents expect the economic situation to deteriorate in 2020. The same number of respondents also expect their employers to perform better financially in 2020, than in 2019.
