At a glance
What is it
The LED Scheme supports your company to:
- Become more manpower-lean.
- Build a stronger Singaporean core.
- Develop a better quality workforce.
A cross-agency LED taskforce comprising Enterprise SG, WSG, NTUC’s e2i, MOM, EDB, STB, IMDA and BCA, will help you in a coordinated manner to tap on relevant assistance schemes. Relevant assistance schemes include:
In addition to the existing assistance schemes, the LED Scheme can also provide transitional manpower support where merited, to facilitate day-to-day operations, if firms need more time to complete the transformation to be within their Dependency Ratio Ceiling or quota. This may include the following:
- Allow companies to have temporary foreign workers while recruiting and training locals to take on better jobs.
- Allow pooling of foreign expertise at the industry level to help transfer know-how to the local workforce.
The LED Scheme is open to all enterprises that are interested to become more manpower-lean, develop a stronger Singaporean core, and build a better quality workforce.
How long does transitionary manpower support last
The duration of the transitional manpower support for each enterprise project is reviewed on a case-by-case basis, depending on the transformation plan.
