Is enough being done to enable inclusivity at work?
Many employers in Singapore have tapped on the Jobs Growth Incentive (JGI) to hire more than 1,600 people with disabilities (PWD). Bulk of the hires were made in the food services, environmental sciences and wholesale trade industries. According to the latest market report released by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), about three in five of the recruits were unemployed at the time of hire. Additionally, more than half had been out of work for more than six months. Also, about two in five were mature workers aged 40 and above.
