Upskilling your Manpower with Government Supported Programme


The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the global landscape dramatically and its effects on the labour market were deeply felt. Like most countries Singapore’s labour market and economic growth has been affected.

Singapore has dealt with the pandemic extremely well compared to other countries in the region and since June 2020 has been working towards business-as-usual. The demand for talented professionals is rapidly increasing, however the supply is being severely restricted by travel limitations, expat appeal, foreign Work Pass limits, and increased salaries, all of which are making it very difficult for firms to source and secure candidates.

The Government has introduced various measures with the primary objective in many ways being to strengthen the Singaporean core of the city state’s labour force.

Join us in this webinar to find out how you can tap on the various grants support to address your manpower upskilling and challenges.
