Singapore is a country that relies heavily on its human capital. Concerted effort must be made to address the key manpower challenges facing the nation as a whole. Based on the background study and discussions at various levels, the following key national manpower areas have been identified:job re-design, managing and implementing flexible work arrangements, training and upgrading of staff, restructuring wages and benefits to sustain competitiveness, fair employment practices, re-employment of older workers aged 62 and above, managing an ageing workforce, attracting economically inactive women to rejoin the workforce, talent management.
