As Singapore transitions into the new endemic phase, where the country eases COVID curbs, work-from-home arrangements will continue to remain the default, said the Ministry of Health (MOH). With more people working from home for prolonged periods of time, the impact it has on our mental health has become increasingly evident. The 24/7 National Care Hotline, set up shortly after Singapore went into its Circuit Breaker lockdown in April 2020, received close to 28,000 calls within five months of its establishment. Similarly, a 42% increase in helpline calls was also reported by the Samaritans of Singapore. As the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve, many employees have expressed their wish for a hybrid model of working from home.
Enter MultiCo – a Singapore-based remote working firm founded in 2020 who specialises in matching office workers, salespeoples and entrepreneurs with under-utilised tables and desks in a myriad of venues.
