Starting a HR Tech in Singapore?

Here are things you need to know

I was having a coffee with a founder of a HR Tech recently.

He was in Singapore to sniff out the market as he has plans to open an office here, after Finland and Italy.

As usual, I started sharing with him on sites to check out and organisations to speak with so he can have a better pulse of the scene.

Review of Quick HR – Cloud-based HR Management Software

Improving HR Automation

It is painful to watch.

The excel sheet that has held payroll data since the company’s inception decades ago is so bloated that the time taken to open the file could allow one to make a cup of coffee, finish it up and make another.

It is almost by default that any recruiters, salespeople or networkers need to have a LinkedIn account.

With millions of users on that platform, it is the easiest way to plug into a vast network which you can dissect, sort and filter.

And joining LinkedIn is free so there is no reason not to.


Games + AI = incredible hires

Recruitment is a constant pain point for many businesses.

From startups to SME to MNC, the importance of hiring good people cannot be emphasized enough.

Applicant tracking system (ATS) was supposed to help. Instead, typical systems deploy non-semantic matching and basically surface the resume with the best SEO.

LinkedIn helped somewhat by providing the world’s biggest database for companies and agency recruiters to mine.
