WorkPro is a new scheme jointly developed by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) to augment local manpower, foster progressive workplaces and strengthen the Singaporean core in our workforce. The programme is designed in consultation with the tripartite partners - Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) and the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), who will manage and administer the programme for 3 years from 1 April 2013 to 31 Mar 2016.
WorkPro for Employers
WorkPro aims to provide funding support for employers and employees through two key strategies: to help employers improve their workplace practices and enhance work-life harmony, and to attract and retain back-to-work locals, as well as mature workers.
Employers will receive a wide range of assistance to implement work-life measures and redesign jobs. Employers will also receive incentives when they recruit mature workers and back-to-work locals, or place their employees on flexible work arrangements (FWAs).
WorkPro for Workers
WorkPro will help employees to benefit from good work-life practices. It also aims to improve the employability of mature employees, economically inactive, and individuals who are out of work for three months or more. WorkPro will help these groups of people become more job ready, and encourage them to return to work and stay on the job.
WorkPro is open to all Singapore-registered or incorporated companies, societies and non-profit organisations. Employees recruited under WorkPro must be either Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents (PR) of Singapore.
