About the Talk

The National Wages Council (NWC) renewed its call for employers to implement the flexible wage system (FWS) in its 2020/2021 Supplementary Guidelines issued on 16 Oct 2020.

Adopting a sustainable and agile wage structure would also give businesses a competitive advantage over competitors and complement Singapore’s efforts to ensure its long-term economic future.

A flexible wage system (FWS) is one way employers can take a long-term view of manpower needs as it will contribute to employers’ cost competitiveness, and provide greater job security for your employees in the long run.
