Female Workers and Ageing Population Encouraged in MOM data


Jaya Dass, Randstad country manager, Singapore has commented on the MOM Singapore Workforce 2015 Report noting the encouraging signs in the report for female participation in the labour force and the continued rise of older workers.

“It is encouraging to see female participation contributing to this increase,” she says. “Not only does this spell progress for gender equality in the workplace, but also economically as an increase in female labour force participation has been notably attributed to stronger economic growth.”

Dass believes the increase in female participation represents a growing awareness by public and private sectors on the importance of gender equality and its role in Singapore’s economic competitiveness. This has also been in evidence from the government as at a recent conference on gender parity, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Grace Fu called for more effort to ensure a pro-family work environment and greater female representation in leadership positions.
