  • Family-friendly Workplaces

     

    In support of the Year of Celebrating SG Families, we invite employers to champion family-friendly workplaces and culture. While working from home and hybrid work arrangement has been more widespread due to the pandemic, employers are encouraged to continue to entrench family-friendly work practices and to adopt PMO-SG’s Made for Families brandmark.

    Here's how you can show your support for families as an employer:

    1) Pledge your support for My Family Weekend 2022 via the QR code or click here.
    2) Adopt one or more of the following suggested family-friendly work practices on 2 September 2022 (Friday, Teachers’ Day).


    Check out how these organisations are championing family-friendly workplaces and culture in the Year of Celebrating SG Families!

     

    When his son was just two, Vincent Lam and his wife couldn’t cope with his frequent meltdowns, and were burned out as first-time parents. Vincent sought support through @OCBC’s Employee Resource Groups initiative for employees with family commitments that was conducted at the workplace by an experienced parenting coach who offers advice, chairs discussions and mentors participants.

    “I found a safe space to share my feelings and experiences as a young parent. My wife and I also learnt how to manage my son’s “terrible two” phase better. Having a support system at work reminded me that I am not alone in my parenting journey.”

    Today, Vincent’s family has since grown with a second child.
