Purpose: The main objective of this research is to formulate a social engineering strategy of entrepreneurship behavior of Indonesian workers. Design/Methodology/Approach: The study used a sequential mixed method with regression by analyzing (1) factors that influence their entrepreneurship behavior, (2) factors that influence their remittance delivery, and (3) social networking patterns that influence their characteristics and motivation to be independent. Findings: The results showed that training, marital status, and work experience in the home country were factors influencing entrepreneurship motivation, while training, remittance recipients, origin and determinants of remittance utilization affected the amount of remittances sent. In addition, social networking shows that motivation to be independent is influenced by training in both hard and soft skills and assistance in both institutional and capital. Practical Implications: This research is expected to be able to provide input to the government, especially the central government as the regulator to formulate regulations in the form of legislation, especially for increasing the human capital of Indonesian migrant workers from the time of pre-placement, placement and through to post-placement. Originality/Value: The social engineering model proposed that is integrated with the structured curriculum and materials followed by ongoing mentoring with a learning group system or Community Learning will encourage migrant workers.
