Singapore’s workforce is silvering, and good workers are not always easy to find. The WorkPro scheme, jointly developed by MOM and WSG in consultation with SNEF and NTUC’s e2i, aims to meet these challenges by augmenting local manpower, encouraging workplaces to be age-friendly and progressive, and strengthening the Singaporean core of the workforce.
Companies tapping on WorkPro can receive up to $425,000 to:
- Implement and sustain flexible work arrangements for all workers
- Put in place age management practices
- Redesign your workplace and processes so they’re more suitable for older workers
Age Management Grant
Employers are encouraged to raise awareness of good age management practices, build an age-friendly workplace and assimilate their older workers within their organisation.
This grant offers up to $20,000 for companies to adopt progressive age management practices.
Job Redesign Grant
Make jobs physically easier, safer and smarter for older workers aged 50 years and above, with up to $300,000 from this grant.
A work-life friendly workplace can be supported by flexible work arrangements(FWAs) that allow employees to vary their work arrangements to suit their individual work-life needs.
With effect from 1 July 2018, the Work-Life Grant will be enhanced to provide up to $105,000 over two years to help companies implement and sustain FWAs.
