Anisya is not your typical maid agency, and through working with us, we hope you’d agree.
Registered with the Ministry of Manpower as an Employment Agency in May 2012, Anisya’s goal is to create an open employment marketplace for foreign domestic workers (FDWs) and employers and we do this through an online employment platform and by providing employment services.
We believe that healthy employment relationships start with both parties in the relationship making their best judgement based on ample information. The commercial recruitment sector has progressed rapidly on this front with online recruitment websites (e.g. JobStreet, Monster), professional networking sites (e.g. LinkedIn) and insider information sites (e.g. Vault). The same is unfortunately not true when it comes to hiring a domestic worker. If you’re an employer, you’re entrusting your children, household and valuables to someone you know little about, and if you’re a domestic worker, you’re entering a 24/7 living and working environment with huge amounts of uncertainty. Given this, it is not surprising that we hear more about broken employment relationships than successful matches.
Anisya aims to address the information access issue through an online employment platform where FDWs and employers can connect, get to know one another and pursue employment opportunities.
In 2012, Anisya pioneered the system of not charging any agency fees to FDWs, at a time when all other employment agencies were generating at least half of their revenues from these workers. In 2015, the Anisya Transfer Pledge was rolled out, providing discounts to employers who would pledge to support their FDWs employment freedom.
The Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME) is a registered charity in Singapore and is dedicated to upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore, including victims of human trafficking and forced labour. Anisya is a strong supporter of HOME and our registered business address is co-located with HOME’s Lucky Plaza office.
