What do start-ups look out for in new hires? Most start-ups place an emphasis on cultural fit, and some make it a point to have candidates meet with their prospective colleagues to assess if they would be able to get along and work well together. Smart way to keep your lifestyle after retirement CPF Life will contribute the bulk of your retirement income, but you can consider other instruments with promise-based payouts like Singapore Savings Bonds to supplement it. The crypto market crashed, but they are still buying Bitcoin As the market has melted, some of these evangelists have embarked on a public relations offensive, aiming to persuade investors and lawmakers that Bitcoin is different from the thousands of other digital currencies that proliferated in the last few years before tanking this spring. Time to take more flexible approach to sick leave? This Covid-19 pandemic has shown the merits of an honour-based sick leave policy, and journalist Ang Qing highlights why firms should consider a more flexible leave system, including how such a practice could make them more appealing to workers. askST: What you need to know before applying for Singapore's first sovereign green bond About $50 million of Singapore's $2.4 billion inaugural sovereign green bond is available for retail investors to subscribe to.
