MP Louis Chua

Mr Chua Kheng Wee Louis asked the Minister for Manpower (a) whether the Ministry tracks the proportion of the workforce that are able to and are practising work-from-home arrangements; and (b) if so, what is the current proportion respectively.

Dr Tan See Leng: Based on MOM’s survey in 2022, 34% of employed residents had worked from home at some point in the month they were surveyed.

Telecommuting is but one of many types of Flexible Work Arrangements (FWAs), which also include flexi-time, flexi-shift and flexi-load arrangements. We encourage employers and employees to consider the whole range of FWAs. Tripartite Partners will continue to encourage and guide employers to implement FWAs at the workplace, in a way that meets the needs of both employers and employees.
