As a social hiring platform, Wantedly finds itself at the forefront in the fight for workforce retention during the Covid-19 pandemic.
With the unemployment rate continuing to skyrocket in Asia during this pandemic, it begs the question:
‘Who is still hiring during coronavirus?’
Wantedly decided that more than just the companies on their platform, it also bears reason to collate a live list of companies in Singapore – whether they are hiring, freezing or seeing layoffs – for the collective benefit of all Singaporeans during this difficult time.
Using Airtable integration, design and development of the site took just under a week, and Wantedly populated the initial list of over 100 companies at launch.
As a ‘Live’ tracking and user-generated list, the site has also provided a form for companies and individuals to contribute and submit to the rapidly growing list.
“This is a crisis and a fight bigger than ourselves. At this time, we cannot afford to only think of users or companies within our platform. I feel passionate about the employment situation here and globally, so this initiative has to serve the people on a larger scale”, says Wantedly Singapore’s Country Manager, Andrew Tan.

It is similarly adopted for Wantedly Hong Kong here.
