Ministry of Manpower

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) aims to develop a great workforce where Singaporeans can aspire to higher incomes and fulfilling careers. We also seek to create great workplaces where companies have outstanding employment practices and organisational cultures. To achieve this vision, our mission is to improve the skills and productivity of the Singaporean workforce so that they can have better jobs, higher incomes and a secure retirement. We will judiciously supplement our workforce with foreigners to strengthen the Singaporean core.

We will also build progressive workplaces, strengthen tripartite relationships and encourage harmonious work cultures. This will help us create fair and forward-looking employment practices that provide safe and healthy work environments and enable work-life balance.

MOM also aspires to be a Great Workforce and a Great Workplace, embodying in our own organisation what we hope to achieve for Singapore.
