Event Summary

With rising employment concerns proliferated by the pandemic, a PME taskforce was formed by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) in October 2020 to engage Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs), employers and various stakeholders to:
  • Identify areas of support and look at ways to strengthen PMEs’ employment and employability
  • Ensure that PMEs have access to a level playing field for jobs, while balancing companies’ manpower needs, in the immediate and longer term.
Join our #infoHR Webinar Series: PME Task Force – Strengthening Support for PMEs for Sustained and Continuous Employment on 3 November to hear our panellists share the key insights in their engagement with the PMEs and the recommendations moving forward.
