In 2007, a new scheme was set up to give companies up to $100,000 to
implement flexible or part-time measures at the workplace.
This $3 million government fund was aimed at coaxing housewives and retirees
to work again.
The money can be spent on any of these measures:
Hire consultants to advise companies on how to implement
part-time/flexible work arrangements
Help pay for part of cost of hiring
Buy machines and equipment to make the work easier
Pay for the cost of training workers in the required skills
and on company’s operations
5. JOB REDESIGN
Make it easier to implement part-time/flexible work arrangements
