Improve your Business with a Stronger Team!


In this session, SMECentre@SMCCI will be sharing on funded programmes by Workforce Singapore (WSG), formally known as Workforce Development Agency (WDA).

Work Trial Programme and Career Support Programmes are some examples of programmes which allow SMEs to seek and gain support to enhance their HR capabilities so as to better attract, develop, upgrade and retain their human capital for sustainable business growth.

Programmes that will be covered are as follows:

  • P-Max Place-and-Train Programme 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 $5000.

  • Work Trial Programme is part of the Adapt and Grow initiative to strengthen the employability of the locals. It is a short term work stint to assess jobseekers’ job fit prior to hiring.

  • Professional Conversion Programme targets at professional executives and aims to help companies alleviate manpower challenges. Through structured classroom and OJT, companies are also able to align training according to their specific business and industry needs.

  • Career Support Programme is a tiered wage support for up to one year for newly-hired PMETs
