Dear Members and Friends,

As a mature worker myself, I and this Chamber have been championing anti-ageism in the workforce for over 6 years. Just like gender, race and sexual orientation, age is not a relevant factor in assessing job fit. Attitude, competencies, skills, potential and output are the key factors each employer should focus on.

More businesses are doing the right things today. For example, there is a greater recognition of the social and commercial equity in paying men and women the same for doing the same job.

There is also a growing recognition that more people are living longer and need and want to stay employed.

The government has been doing its bit too by planning to raise the retirement and re-employment ages. It has taken another step to encourage more companies to raise both before being legally obliged to do so by way of grants.

My thanks to our friends at Singapore National Employers Federation for sharing the criteria and grant computations of the Senior Worker Early Adopter Grant (SWEAG) and the Part-Time Re-employment Grant (PTRG) launched recently. Find out more at:

Have a good week ahead.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
