Enhanced Work-Life Grant for flexible work arrangements

Companies can apply for grants and incentives to implement flexible work arrangements (FWAs) such as flexi-load, flexi-place and flexi-time.

What is it

The enhanced Work-Life Grant aims to incentivise companies to sustain the use of flexible work arrangements (FWAs) for all employees, to create work-life harmony at the workplace.

The enhanced Work-Life Grant comprises 2 components:

  • FWA Incentive
    Incentivise companies to sustain implementation of FWAs for their local employees.
  • Job Sharing Incentive
    Incentivise employers to implement job sharing for employees at PMET-level with gross monthly salary of at least $3,600, before job sharing arrangement.

You can tap on one or both components.

Types of FWAs

The FWAs recognised for this grant include flexi-load, flexi-place and flexi-time. Other FWAs may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Employees using the FWAs must be working on a regular basis, i.e. not ad-hoc or casual employees.

FWA Incentive

The FWA Incentive encourages you to support employees who adopt FWAs.

Amount Up to $70,000 per company over 2 years.
Computation (yearly) $2,000 per local employee per year, who is a regular user of FWAs.

Requirements

The incentive should be used to nurture and further workplace cultures that support better work-life harmony.

To receive subsequent tranches of payouts, your company needs to sustain the work-life practices at your workplace.
