Why should you take help scaling in Indonesia?
1. Unavailability of Talent for a number of industries including Heavy Engineering
It is comparably difficult to find a talented workforce for industries like heavy engineering. Either one has to put considerable resources and time into finding the right, or one will have to hire expats.
2. Inefficient education system
The education system of Indonesia is quite outdated. It is not producing as many specially skilled workers as is required to grow the economy. Even though the startup ecosystem has started evolving over the last couple of years, it is not common to find special skills such as software development.
3. Taxation System
Each year, 51 tax payments have to be made, which takes an average of 259 hours of company time. A 25% corporate income tax takes 75 hours to process, and another 184 hours are needed for social security contributions and VAT.
Many employers end up struggling with scaling and maintaining the quality of their workforce simply because they don’t understand the nuances of local culture. Indonesians prefer to be treated with a lot of patience and calmness. Employees often switch jobs at the slightest provocation.
5. High Rate of Attrition
Generally, employees in Indonesia can switch jobs for very small incentives. Retaining employees is a challenge, hence the high attrition rate especially at junior levels.
6. Low English Penetration
Compared to other SEA countries such as the Philippines, where English is spoken by almost everyone, it hasn’t spread beyond a small group of professions in Indonesia. This makes it very tedious for foreign companies to hire English speaking workforce in Indonesia. Although Bahasa Indonesia is a simple and beautiful language that non-natives can start speaking fluently within one year.
