Overseas returnees have an edge in Singapore

Overseas returnees

Singapore’s returning expats have gotten native “plus” salaries however several still struggle to suit once a stint abroad.
“When compared to the remainder of Asia, Singaporean overseas returnees have additional realistic regular payment expectations. The researchers asked overseas returnees, ‘What were your regular payment expectations for your initial job back within the country/region of your birth?’ the bulk aforesaid they expected to earn a regular payment in line with what they were earning overseas’, while 32% expected a hike in their regular payment from what they were earning overseas.”

This is why to draw in returning employees, some firms are willing to offer increased regular payment packages for Singaporean returnees. “There is associate increasing trend of ‘enhanced local’ package whereby the returning worker gets a higher salary than a ‘pure local’ (someone who has not worked abroad).


However, returning employees shouldn’t expect a generous regular payment bump. Research shows that while over half of employers keen to give returnees a regular payment package more than that of their peers, solely 22% would offer 11% to 25% additional.


“Higher regular pay or perks aren’t associated with simply having worked overseas.  Firms are further considering number of experiences and skills learned relevant to them, i.e. you come with higher communication skills, stronger understanding of operating in an exceedingly foreign setting, extra skills learned in an exceedingly totally different marketing/sales/HR/operational setting, etc.
