Recommendations

The Singapore Business Federation (SBF) launched a special report titled “Sustainable Employment – Achieving Purposeful Business Success Together” on 22 November 2019. A by-business-for-business initiative, the report puts forth 6 recommendations targeted at addressing the employment needs of the elderly, the less well-off and those vulnerable to job disruption in Singapore. As part of this initiative, SBF also launched the Sustainable Employment Pledge that calls on business to take action to support sustainable employment practices.
