Singapore water agency starts rehiring scheme for staff aged 65
Publication Date : 10-08-2014
Singapore's national water agency, PUB, is among the first statutory boards to introduce a re-employment policy to keep 65-year-old workers in their ranks for two more years.
The initiative was put in place last month to retain experienced employees, as long as they meet health and work performance requirements.
"The reality is that PUB has a relatively sizeable mature workforce. If they can continue to contribute, why not re-employ them?" said PUB director of human resources Lawrence Tan.
Since 2012, firms have been required by law to offer re-employment to workers aged between 62 and 65, provided they are healthy and their work is satisfactory, or a one-off payment.
