Share and Print

At HPB, we encourage companies to create a work environment that is engaging and supportive to their employees. We believe that people are a company's most valuable asset and their care and support should be a priority. Hence, we have collaborated with Enterprise Singapore to help Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) improve their employees’ psychological well-being and build capabilities in employee engagement.

From 1 October 2016*, your company can apply for Enterprise Singapore's Development Grant for projects that build sustainable strategies for employee engagement.

Employee engagement helps employees to be more productive, creative and motivated to contribute to organisational success. Strategies to improve employee engagement include:

  • Effective internal communications strategy/processes
  • Positive and supportive management and leadership styles and behaviour for leaders and line managers
  • Holistic psychological well-being programmes for employees

By investing in these strategies, your company becomes an employer of choice, increasing its ability to attract and retain talent.

  • Assessment of company’s employee engagement profile
  • Identification of gaps and creation of employee engagement and mental well-being solutions
  • Coaching of company leaders on ways to effectively implement engagement and well-being programmes at the workplace
  • Evaluation of interventions

  • Be registered and operating in Singapore
