WORK-LIFE GRANT

The enhanced Work-Life Grant aims to strengthen work-life harmony by providing support for companies to sustain the use of flexible work arrangements (FWAs) among their employees.

The enhanced Work-Life Grant comprises two components:

a) A Flexible Work Arrangement Incentive of up to $70,000 per company to incentivise companies to sustain the implementation of FWAs for their local employees.

b) A Job Sharing Incentive of up to $35,000 per company, to incentivise employers to implement job sharing for employees at the Professional, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMET)-level drawing a gross monthly salary of at least $3,600, prior to the job sharing arrangement.

Under the enhanced Work-Life Grant, the types of flexible work arrangements recognised can be broadly classified under a) flexi-load (e.g. varying duties or workload), b) flexi-place (e.g. telecommuting) or c) flexi-time (e.g. staggered working hours). Employees deemed to be using flexible work arrangements for the purpose of this grant must be working on a regular basis (i.e. not ad-hoc or casual employment).

Organisations, including companies, societies and non-profit organisations (NPOs) such as charities and voluntary welfare organisations can apply for either or both components of the enhanced Work-Life Grant.

The enhanced Work-Life Grant will effective from 1 Jul 2018. Please click here to view the Programme Factsheet for the enhanced Work-Life Grant.

  • 2. What are the types of flexible work arrangements recognised under the Work-Life Grant?

    FWAs refer to work arrangements where employers and employees agree to a variation from the usual work arrangement. For example, flexibility can be applied to:

    • Work timing/ duration: This includes staggered working hours and compressed work week.
    • Work location: This includes telecommuting.
    • Work scope: This refers to varying duties or workload. An example is part-time work.
