Even as Singapore shifts to Phase 3 of circuit breaker measures on Dec 28 this year, work from home (WFH) measures appear to be here to stay. A survey by Dell Technologies found that 84% of Singapore’s workforce feel prepared for long-term work from home arrangements - a figure greater than the Asia-Pacific & Japan (APJ) figure of 81%. 

A total of over 7,000 working professionals aged 18 and above from seven markets across APJ - 1,030 of whom were from Singapore - were surveyed based on the Remote Working Readiness Index developed by Dell Technologies. The index examined data on employee readiness for long-term remote work and their views on factors key to its success. 

Despite the enthusiasm for WFH among workers, only 39% of Singaporean respondents felt that their employers were fully supportive of long-term work. This was lower than the APJ average of 46%.
