Programme Introduction

The Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) will be organising a briefing on WorkPro and Government Support Programmes. At this platform, SNEF will share on Workpro, which comprises of age management grant, job redesign grant and worklife grant. Under WorkPro, an employer may receive up to $480,000 in co-funding and incentives from the Government.

WorkPro was introduced in April 2013 to augment local manpower, foster progressive workplaces and strengthen the Singaporean core of our workforce. It has been enhanced in July 2016 to encourage employers to implement progressive employment practices to benefit Singaporeans through job redesign, age management practices for older workers, and adopting flexible work arrangements for all workers.

SNEF will also introduce about the various WSG programmes under the Adapt and Grow Initiative on recruitment, training and retention of PMETs. They are as follows:
