Businesses around the world are having to get used to a new normal. Offices are closed, workers are furloughed at home. The scale of the Coronavirus pandemic has brought the world almost to a halt. There is hope, scientists are working on a vaccine and the lockdown measures in place seem to be flattening the curve. But it will probably be months before restrictions can be safely lifted and business are having to use technology to keep going. Meetings are now held on Zoom. Work is being done remotely by staff at home. Managers are finding that productivity can be maintained even during this lockdown period. For a smart manager though, just surviving through a crisis isn’t enough. They want to excel during a crisis.

Covid Crisis And Covid Opportunity

In the Chinese language, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters, one representing danger and the other, opportunity. They knew when crafting their characters that with every great period of danger and uncertainty comes opportunity too for those who can see it and take advantage of it. You’ve already made the great leap, from working together in person to working remotely. And it’s going well. Your staff are all meeting their targets at home. But what more could you be doing?

Save Staffing Costs With Remote Teams In Vietnam

Moving your projects from development teams based on Singapore to ones based in Vietnam brings great savings for your company. Vietnam is home to a fantastic talent pool of young, well educated developers and artists who easily match the best in Singapore. The workplace culture is very similar to Singapore, so you’ll know what to expect: hard working dedicated professionals, loyal to your companies’ mission. Vietnamese culture places great emphasis on team work and commitment, they throw themselves into their work.

The results of this are easy to see if you are lucky enough to visit. The cities gleem with new skyscrapers, construction is under way everywhere. This is a country that is growing fast, with a 7.8% GDP growth rate. While Vietnam is on the same trajectory as Singapore, it’s newer in its development. Costs of living here are considerably lower. Rents, for example, are much more affordable, partly because the cities aren’t constrained for land. Overall this means staffing costs are much lower in Vietnam than in Singapore.
