Bond for Engineer - Update 1 (Replies)


Dear HR professionals,

My organization is exploring to issue a bond for new engineers who join. Reason as the company invest heavily on engineers, we do not wish for them to leave as soon as they receive the training.

I would like to seek advice in the community (preferably from engineering company) if you have provided such bond to Singapore and overseas engineers, and what is the sentiment from the engineers of such practice?

Thank you




If training is invested in entry level engineers, it is reasonable to impose a bond

a) to encourage potential candidates consider carefully before taking up the apprenticeship
b) to deter trainee from breaking bond due to frivolous reasons

For overseas candidates, the bond may include expenses such as airticket, settling allowance, initial hotel stays etc.

As for sentiments, it is a supply and demand situation. If you have more suitable candidates than positions available, sentiments is not a concern.




Your recruitment will be difficult as engineers are high in demand. They have many choices.
