Support for Job Redesign under Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG-JR) encourages enterprises to work with pre-approved consultants to redesign work processes, tasks and responsibilities. Job Redesign (JR) can support business transformation and help make jobs more productive and attractive for employees, helping enterprises to hire and retain good workers to support the business.
How it works
Enterprises can apply for PSG-JR through the Business Grants Portal (BGP).
Eligible enterprises can work with pre-approved JR consultants to redesign work processes, tasks and responsibilities. The expected outcomes of the PSG-JR project may include:
o Worker’s job size enlarged and/or job value increased*
