Sept 4: Talent Dialogue. Struggling to find top-notch talent in Singapore? Buzzled with employment laws and MoM regulations? Or looking for the dream job? FBC is arranging an autumn season-opening event in collaboration with other Nordic business councils to help both employers and jobseekers.
Singapore is a highly competitive environment for both employees and employers. To ease their burden, FBC has invited experts on employer branding, recruitment and employment regulation to share their knowledge.
