Not bad ah, All Singapore and TR Emeritus, just because the words of ONE senior headhunter / exec of recruitment firm, it must be true. Furthermore, the global economy is not doing well, plus our Govt has already made it more difficult for companies to apply for EP. Guess they will just believe words of one person.
“Stricter rules for Employment Pass approval” —
The criteria for approval will be changed to include such factors as the proportion of foreigners in a company and whether it tried to recruit Singaporeans for the job. Also, it will examine the extent of the company’s contribution to the economy and society. Those deemed weak in all three areas will face difficulties in renewing the EPs of existing foreigners and getting new ones for fresh hires. http://www.straitstimes.com/…/stricter-rules-for-employment…
