Simply put, it is a funding scheme to allow employers to enhance work-life harmony and implement age-friendly workplaces.
Jointly developed by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and Workforce Singapore (WSG), in consultation with Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) and National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), this enhanced scheme took effect from 1 July 2016 to allow a grant of up to $480,000 to support various initiatives.
The Work-Life Grant supports companies to implement and sustain work-life strategies, particularly flexible work arrangements for up to $160,000 (through tapping on the two components — the Developmental Grant and the FWA Incentive).
In order to be eligible, employers must meet all of the following criteria laid out:
- Be legally registered or incorporated in Singapore. This includes societies and non-profit organisations such as charities and voluntary welfare organisations. Does not include public organisations such as Ministries, Statutory Boards, Organs of state, Government and Government-aided schools.
- Have not received funding under the first edition of WorkPro (April 2013 to 30 June 2016) for Age Management Grant and Work-Life Grant.
