WorkPro’s Work-Life Grant

Striking a healthy work-life balance is a difficult challenge for employers but all the more necessary to retain employees. Consider the Work-Life Grant under WorkPro to help you and your employees better manage work and family responsibilities.

The Work-Life Grant consists of 2 components:

  1. The Developmental Grant 
  2. The Flexible Work Arrangement (FWA) Incentive

1. 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.

Requirements

To be eligible for the Developmental Grant, you need to:

  • Appoint a work-life ambassador from senior management to champion a work-life friendly workplace for your employees and to communicate the organisation’s work-life policies to your employees.
  • Have at least one employee complete the work-life training course.

2. Flexible Work Arrange (FWA) Incentive

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

  1. Flexi-Time (report to work early and leave early, vice versa)
  2. Flexi-Place (work out of office 2 days per month)
  3. Part-time Work (work less than 35 hours per week)
Amount Up to $120,000 per company.
Disbursement In tranches of up to $40,000 per year over 3 years.
Computation (yearly)

Based on the number of unique Singaporean employees utilising FWAs:

  • $10,000 for the first 5 Singaporean employees.
  • $1,500 per additional Singaporean employee (i.e. from 6thonwards).

The total incentive disbursed depends on the percentage of employees utilising the FWAs:

Utilisation rate for FWAs Total incentive Annual payment
At least 20% Up to $75,000 Up to $25,000
At least 30% Up to $120,000

Up to $40,000

Requirements

The incentive should be used to nurture and further workplace cultures that support better work-life harmony. To receive subsequent payouts, your company needs to sustain the work-life practices at your workplace.

In addition, you need to:

  • Appoint a work-life ambassador from senior management to champion a work-life friendly workplace and communicate your organisation's work-life policies to your employees.
  • Have formalised 2 or more new FWAs in your HR policies and communicate them to your employees.
  • Have no more than 6 in 10 employees on the same FWA type counting towards the 20% or 30% FWA utilisation requirement.
