The Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) will be organising a SME briefing on Government Support Programmes and Employee Engagement on 12 Jul 2018. The Employment Act is the critical legislation that governs employer-employee relationship in Singapore. It is mandatory for employers to be compliant with the act, however, some SMEs are still uncertain on its implementation. To bridge this understanding, Reveres Management Associates will present an overview and critical updates of the Employment Act such as non-compliance penalties and gaining insight in utilising available resources to ensure policies consistencies with the required regulatory requirements.
Enhancing employees’ experience is imperative to produce happier and motivated employees as it increases productivity and various positive business outcomes. To ensure that this experience aligns with the company culture, feedback is essential. EngageRocket will share on the key insights and practices by successful companies and how real-time feedback analytics can achieve this. Following which, ByCorps will touch on the importance of employee engagement through learning to unleash their fullest potential. SMEs could develop a strong Singaporean core in a manpower-lean economy through enhanced programmes under the Adapt & Grow Initiative announced by the Ministry of Manpower. In addition to sharing on employment facilitation assistance for SMEs, Workforce Singapore will brief on the various programmes such as Enhanced Career Support Programme, Career Trial and Jobsbank.
Lastly, the Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) will introduce the P-Max Place-and-Train Programme which aims to facilitate the entry of PMETs into suitable SME jobs and help SMEs better cope with the challenges of talent recruitment in an increasingly tight labour market. Upon successful completion of the programme, SMEs will be eligible for a one-time Assistance Grant of $5,000.
