Glints named official talent partner for SWITCH 2021, to aid entrepreneurs in kick-starting their startup building journey
■ Glints is looking to connect with startups, while linking them up with the right talent from around the Greater Southeast Asian region
■ This takes place alongside the SWITCH conference taking place from 8-12 November 2021

Singapore, 5 November 2021 – Glints is proud to announce its inaugural partnership with the Singapore Week of Innovation and TeCHnology (SWITCH), for the 2021 edition of its signature conference taking place from 8-12 November 2021, organised by Enterprise Singapore. Themed “Global Gateway to Innovation in Asia”, Glints is complementing this theme with its range of employer-centric talent solutions aimed at kickstarting, facilitating, and empowering startups as they begin their journey.

With this partnership, Glints is looking to help startups who face obstacles in team scaling due in part to the global talent crunch, as well as have limited resources to allocate towards talent hiring, sourcing and management. This partnership will enable Glints to solidify its position not only as a reliable partner for the right talent in the field of startup hiring, but also as the fastest growing talent recruitment and management platform, with a regional talent pool of over 2 million talent across Southeast Asia and Taiwan. To date, Glints has contributed to the growth of over 40,000 organisations worldwide.

Firstly, organisations looking to reach out to a regional talent pool of over 2 million across five markets can list their available job opportunities with Glints for free! Those keen on spreading the word about their exciting openings can begin their journey here.

Secondly, employers looking for remote solutions to meet their hiring needs will be able to do so with the aid of Glints’ TalentHub, in addition to enjoying a full waiver on hiring fees on their first two offshore hires. With tailored solutions from Glints, organisations can look forward to over 70% savings in manpower costs, and having Glints as the Employer of Record who will also manage payroll and compliance matters in addition to all other HR related functions. Interested parties simply have to claim this offer here.*

Aside from offering its expertise in hiring solutions, Glints also hopes to ignite conversations around the state of the tech talent recruitment scene on a larger scale. One of the major ongoing issues facing the industry is the lack of skilled talent globally. As a thought leader in this space, Glints has in recent times partnered with organisations such as the Infocomm Media Development Authority and the Economic Development Board (EDB) to shed more light on these issues. For those interested in gaining more insights on this topic, Glints and EDB will be holding a Masterclass at SWITCH on 8 November from 12.00pm – 12.30pm, entitled “Talent as a regionalisation strategy to SEA”.

On the announcement of this landmark partnership, Glints CEO and Co-Founder Oswald Yeo enthused: “Glints’ involvement with SWITCH 2021 marks an important milestone in the company’s journey to becoming the number one talent platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, while impacting 100 million careers and 1 million organisations. Having been in a similar position ourselves, we can relate closely with the challenges that startups are currently facing. With our experience and expertise in the field of talent sourcing and management, we hope to be the catalyst that aids startups in achieving their organisation growth goals.”

Elaborating on the importance of Glints’ involvement in SWITCH 2021, Cindy Ngiam, Director of the SWITCH Programme Office at Enterprise Singapore shared: “One of the most common obstacles we see for companies, especially those in the tech and innovation space, is the difficulty in finding the right talent to support their growth plans. With Glints onboard as a dedicated talent partner, this brings added value to our SWITCH 2021 platform. We hope that participants of SWITCH 2021 can benefit from its regional expertise and resources in the field of recruitment, and gain access to talent in the region more effectively.”
