Event Details

Singaporeans are leading active work lives in their senior years. We have amongst the world’s highest employment rates for older workers with employment rate of residents aged 55 to 64 trending up over past decade, to a high of 67.2% in 2015. In recent years, over 98% of local employees who wish to continue working were offered employment beyond age 62. This was reinforced by raising the re-employment age on 1 July 2017 from 65 to 67. 

 

The efforts to enable older workers to continue working should be strengthened. A large part of this effort involves redesigning jobs and managing the needs of the workforce to improve employee engagement and productivity.

 

Redesigning jobs can be simple and cost-effective. It could involve modifying job tasks, responsibilities, work arrangements, and physical workspaces with the help of automation.
