SINGAPORE: Companies facing manpower shortage could consider implementing flexible work arrangements such as home-based work, to tap the pool of economically inactive Singapore workers.

Speaking at a work-life conference organised by the Tripartite Committee on Work-Life Strategy, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Manpower and Education Hawazi Daipi said employers could benefit from costs savings, improved productivity as well as having access to employees who may not be able to work away from home due to family responsibilities.

He noted that while home-based work is a relatively new concept in Singapore, savvy businesses were increasingly adopting the practice together with other flexible work arrangements to attract and retain talents.

According to a 2010 Manpower Ministry survey, 35 per cent of employers offered at least one form of flexible work arrangement, up from 25 per cent in 2007.

Mr Hawazi said this reflects an increased awareness that progressive and flexible HR practices are an important factor for both employers and employees.

He also launched a guide book "Work@Home", which aims to provide employers with information on home-based work as well as practical tips to implement such arrangements.

The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore will conduct pilots on home-based work with industry partners to identify challenges and explore solutions to implementing home-based work.
