What is WorkPro
WorkPro is a scheme for both employers and workers, designed to augment local manpower, foster progressive workplaces and strengthen the Singaporean core in our workforce.
It was jointly developed by MOM and Workforce Development Agency (WDA), in consultation with tripartite partners Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) and National Trades Union Congress (NTUC). Read the WorkPro press release.
The programme will run for 3 years from 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2016.
Who it is for
WorkPro is for both employers and employees.
You can get funding support for a wide range of assistance to implement work-life measures, redesign jobs and improve workplace practices. You can also get incentives for recruiting mature workers and back-to-work locals, or placing employees on flexible work arrangements.
Employees will benefit from the good work-life practices WorkPro helps put in place.
In addition, if you are a mature employee, economically inactive or out of work for 3 months or more, WorkPro can help you become more job-ready and employable. It is an encouraging way to return to work and stay on the job.
