Women who have put their careers on hold to start a family will find it easier to transition back into the workforce.

WorkPro, a programme developed by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency and the Ministry of Manpower, has been formed to provide companies more support in offering flexible working arrangements to local employees.

The three-year scheme, which cost S$1.7 million, was launched on 1 April, and allows employers to tap into grants to redesign jobs and provide better incentives to attract and retain staff, My Paper reported.

The programme was also designed to benefit mature workers, as well as those who are economically inactive.

Those who are unemployed can turn to WorkPro for fully-funded job-preparation workshops, and be matched to an employer under the programme. Currently, 14 employers have signed up with the scheme.

More than 70% of small and medium enterprises in Singapore are expected to benefit from the programme, and Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said it will help “employers create more progressive and work-life-friendly workplaces”.
