What Is it?

Employers play a key role in supporting career transitions. The new hiring incentive aims to encourage more employers to step up efforts to recruit, retrain, and retain mature workers.

Employers who hire new local workers aged 40 and above through select reskilling programmes can receive 20% salary support for 6 months, capped at $6,000 in total.

Reskilling programmes eligible for the hiring incentive are the Professional Conversion Programmes (PCPs), Place-and-Train (PnT) programmes for rank-and-file workers, and career transition programmes by Continuing Education and Training (CET) centres. An employer who is already claiming salary support for a mature person hired under Workforce Singapore’s Career Support Programme or P-Max, cannot receive the hiring incentive for the same person hired.
