Companies can apply for grants and incentives to implement flexible work arrangements (FWAs) such as flexi-time, flexi-place and part-time work.

The Work-Life Grant provides funding and incentives for companies to offer flexible work arrangements (FWAs) for employees. The aim is to help employees better manage work and family responsibilities, and enhance the pro-family environment in Singapore.

The FWAs recognised for this grant include flexi-time, flexi-place and part-time work. Other FWAs may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Employees utilising the FWAs must be working on a regular basis, i.e. not ad-hoc or casual employees.

Developmental Grant

The Developmental Grant is a one-time grant of up to $40,000 per company to help you take steps towards implementing work-life strategies, particularly FWAs. It can also help to defray part of the developmental costs, e.g. for training, consultancy and infrastructure.

The FWA Incentive encourages you to support more employees on FWAs.
