Singapore is the place to be if you are planning on working abroad; it is as simple as that. The tiny Asian city-state is an economic powerhouse which attracts talented professionals from all across the world to work in its multinational corporations, as well as in the Singaporean companies, that are always in demand of skilled labour. According to World Bank data from 2014, Singapore recorded an impressive $56,296 GDP per capita that makes it one of the richest countries in the world and to put it in perspective; the GDP per capita in the United States the same year was $54,629. So, the ‘economic powerhouse’ bit is indisputable and there are jobs for the right people, in fact there are plenty of them. Additionally, in a ‘country league table’ survey that was conducted by HSBC Expat in 2015 in order to ascertain the best places to work for as an expat, Singapore was ranked first among 39 countries. People are paid well and the standard of living is right up there with the very best cities in the world.
如果您打算在国外工作,那么新加坡就是一个好地方。它是如此简单。这个小小的亚洲城市国家是一个经济大国,吸引了来自世界各地的才华横溢的专业人才来其一直需要熟练劳动力的跨国公司和新加坡公司工作。根据世界银行(World Bank)2014年的数据,新加坡的人均GDP达到了惊人的56,296美元,使其成为世界上最富有的国家之一。同年美国的人均国内生产总值为54,629美元。因此,“经济强国”无疑是无可争辩的,并且有合适的人能找到工作,实际上其中有很多。此外,在2015年由汇丰侨民(HSBC Expat)进行的“国家排名表”调查中,为了确定最适合作为外籍人士工作的地方,新加坡在39个国家中排名第一。人们的薪水很高,生活水平也很高,与世界上最好的城市一样。

If you are wondering what the best companies to work for are in Singapore, look no further. We’ve compiled a list for you with the very top companies in Singapore, so take your pick and bon voyage.

1. Singapore Google
This tech giant seems to be one of the best places to work for across the world. Also, unsurprisingly it’s among the companies which are high on the wish list of skilled professionals who wish to make it in Singapore. The state of the art office, located at Asia Square, is the nerve centre of the company’s business interests in the Asia-Pacific region and it is not a surprise that the company makes sure that their employees in the city are well looked after, although it would be a disservice to the company to deduce that they do not treat employees in other offices as well. Google does not only offer great salaries, incentives and other benefits to all its employees but it also provides an environment in which the employees can shine. Singapore Google handles the work of some of the biggest names in media, publishing and other businesses which certainly makes it a rewarding experience for any professional. The company has been particularly successful in immersing itself in the local culture that makes the experience of being a ‘Singagoogler’ particularly attractive for anyone. The famed Google microkitchens do not look like any other microkitchen in any other Google office, but like a typical South Asian food stall for instance. Talk about a company that likes to spoil their employees!
这家科技巨头似乎是全球最佳的工作场所之一。此外,毫不奇怪,它是希望在新加坡制造的专业人士的高希望之列。位于亚洲广场的先进办公室是公司在亚太地区业务利益的神经中枢,尽管公司确保其在该市的员工得到了良好照顾,这也不足为奇推断他们也不会对待其他办公室的员工,这对公司不利。 Google不仅为其全体员工提供丰厚的薪水,奖励和其他福利,而且还提供了一个让员工大放异彩的环境。新加坡Google负责媒体,出版和其他行业中一些知名人士的工作,这无疑使它成为任何专业人员的丰厚经验。该公司在融入当地文化方面特别成功,这使成为“新加坡人”的经历对任何人都特别有吸引力。著名的Google微型厨房看起来不像其他Google办公室中的其他微型厨房,而是像典型的南亚食品摊。谈论一家喜欢宠坏员工的公司!

2. Shell Singapore
The Anglo-Dutch oil and gas behemoth has offices all across the world, which is why it is not a surprise that it has offices in Singapore as well, as Singapore is often regarded as one of the most important centres for corporations in the South-East Asian region. Shell has consistently been one of the most sought after organisations for people in Singapore and expats for many years, not only due to its stature as a company (which incidentally is a big thing in Singapore), but also because of the fact that employees are well taken care of in the organisation. Shell Singapore offers solid salaries to all its employees and considering the cost of living in Singapore, that is a huge plus. In addition to that, there are huge career developments programmes that are offered to fresh graduates who are employed by the organisation. Shell Singapore employs a wide variety of professionals starting from those involved in engineering to those specialising in accountancy; which is why it is possible for you to get a job that best suits your qualifications. The 2014 Ranstad Award that placed Shell Singapore as the second best place to work in the city-state, noted that it is an organisation where ‘great people, great values and great opportunities’ find a place.
英荷石油和天然气巨头在全球设有办事处,这就是为什么它在新加坡也设有办事处也就不足为奇了,因为新加坡经常被视为南部企业最重要的中心之一。东亚地区。壳牌多年来一直是新加坡人和外籍人士最受追捧的组织之一,这不仅是因为壳牌公司的地位(顺带一提,这在新加坡是一件大事),还因为员工都是在组织中得到很好的照顾。壳牌新加坡为所有员工提供稳定的薪水,并考虑到在新加坡的生活成本,这是一个巨大的优势。除此之外,还为该组织雇用的应届毕业生提供了庞大的职业发展计划。壳牌新加坡公司拥有从工程技术到会计专业的各种专业人才。这就是为什么您有可能找到最适合您的资格的工作。 2014年Ranstad奖将新加坡壳牌公司列为城市州第二好的工作场所,并指出,这是一个“伟大的人,伟大的价值观和巨大的机会”找到位置的组织。

3. Singapore Airlines
Singapore’s gift to the world of airlines is consistently ranked among the best airlines in the world and for two decades the airline has been regarded as the best international carrier. An organisation committed to such excellence needs to hire the best people and treat them well. So it won’t come as a surprise to you that it has always been ranked among the best companies to work for. In addition to the best possible salary in the industry, Singapore Airlines offers a fun environment that is essential for employees to keep their wits about themselves when they go to work for a company that prides itself on providing outstanding value to its customers. The scholarship programs for fresh graduates are also incredibly vital in terms of career development and all on board staff are taken through a rigorous four month training schedule that prepares them for life.

4. Keppel Corporation
The Singaporean shipping and engineering giant is next on this list of companies who not only rake in huge revenues year on year, but also remain among the most desirable employers for people who wish to work in Singapore. Keppel hires some of the brightest talents for its myriad divisions and makes sure that they take good care of them. Wouldn’t you like to work for a company which allows you to continually improve your skills through management trainee and management associate programs? That sort of a program sets the employee on course of a fulfilling career for life. Although it cannot be denied that employees are in a high pressure environment at such a corporation; it is also undeniable that the company makes sure that fun and amusement are also a big part of the experience. Employees at the Singapore offices are often taken on overseas trips and there is a Keppelite Recreation Club as well which enables the ‘Keppelites’ to indulge in a range of recreational activities.
新加坡航运业和工程业巨头是该公司名单中的下一个公司,这些公司不仅年收入丰厚,而且仍然是希望在新加坡工作的人们最希望得到的雇主之一。吉宝为其众多部门聘用了一些最聪明的人才,并确保他们照顾好他们。您不想在一家可以通过管理培训生和管理助理计划不断提高技能的公司工作吗?这类计划使员工走上了充实的人生道路。尽管不能否认员工在这样的公司中处于高压环境;同样不可否认的是,公司确保乐趣和娱乐也是体验的重要组成部分。新加坡办事处的员工经常出国旅行,还有一个吉宝人娱乐俱乐部,这使“ Keppelites”可以沉迷于各种娱乐活动。

5. ExxonMobil Singapore
Another global giant for you in the form of US based oil and natural gas company: ExxonMobil. It is located in the Harbourfront area in Singapore and has been one of the top employers in the city-state for a long time. ExxonMobil is not listed at number five because it’s not equal to the four listed above, this is a ranking of equals, so don’t hesitate to look for work at ExxonMobil. The benefits, salaries, employee welfare and development schemes at ExxonMobil are right up there with the other big players who are among the most attractive destinations for professionals of different ilk. ExxonMobil will provide with one of the best possible opportunities in Singapore not only for career development, but also in terms of job satisfaction and it is not a surprise that getting into the organisation is almost always a highly competitive endeavour.

These companies have consistently provided their employees with the opportunity to work at the very pinnacle of their respective industries, which in itself is a huge bonus, but at the same time they have made sure that their employees are equally well looked after. At the end of the day, happy and highly trained employees will continue to make these companies the leaders in their own industries. If you decide to work in Singapore then these five companies should be at the top of your list. You will hardly ever have a bad day at office; that’s for sure.
