SNEF and ASME say more can be done to help companies embrace work-life balance
While there are government assistance grants to help companies embrace work-life balance, some employers say more can be done.
The Singapore National Employers Federation has asked the government to provide a grant for HR practitioners to design and implement flexible work arrangements.
The Association for Small and Medium Enterprises is calling for government assistance to subsidise the cost of training programmes on flexible work arrangements.
Work-life consultants say presently, many firms do not have any guidelines on this issue.
When asked, the Manpower Ministry says it's currently reviewing its funding schemes for flexible work arrangements.
