How COVID19 is forcing many companies to move to remote working

The world crisis created by the current COVID19 pandemic has forced many companies to undergo fierce changes and adapt to flexible working.

First of all, we need to remember that for a lot of companies, working from home is not an option. The vast majority of the work includes physical interaction and manual actions: while drones are only an aspiration for your online shoping delivery, you still need someone for the parcels to come to your door; take-away and food shopping requires staff to prepare food and stock up supermarket shelves; emergency work involves ingeniors or technicians to repair and maintain plenty of appliances; and of course all the health sector will need to be working in hospital and surgeries.

Working from home has been part of the work-culture for a long time in some country, especially northern Europe. In the recent years, lead by office space reduction more than a sudden consideration for the well-being of their staff or environmental concern commuting reduction, more companies have moved from a full-time office based location to flexible working (meaning partial remote working, one or two days per week for example).  (More)

Sing-Guarantee: Rental Security Deposits in Singapore

You cannot escape putting down a rental security deposit when renting a property in Singapore (like in many other countries). Landlords need resources to repair and maintain their property. These deposits act as coverage against any possible damage caused by tenants and help landlords maintain their property.

Even if it feels like a burden to pay, you also benefit from rental security deposits. The amount you deposit is enough to cover you for possible at-fault and no-fault property damages. In the event you miss paying rent (for valid reasons), the security cash deposit also pays for it automatically.

We have compiled a list of things you need to know about rental security deposits to help you understand how renting a property works in Singapore. (More)
