What is WorkPro
WorkPro is a scheme for employers to:
- Augment local manpower.
- Foster progressive and age-friendly workplaces and jobs.
- Strengthen the Singaporean core.
It was jointly developed by MOM and WDA, in consultation with SNEF and NTUC.
From 1 July 2016, WorkPro will be enhanced to further encourage employers to implement age-friendly workplaces to benefit Singaporeans through job redesign and age management practices for older workers. Read the Factsheet for details of the Enhanced WorkPro.

|Job Redesign Grant
