Lean Enterprise Development (LED) Scheme
The LED Scheme helps progressive enterprises transform and grow in the new manpower-lean landscape.
What is it
The LED Scheme supports your company to:
- Become more manpower-lean
- Build a stronger Singaporean core
- Develop a better quality workforce
You can tap on the relevant assistance schemes under the LED Scheme, coordinated by a cross-agency LED taskforce comprising Enterprise SG, WSG, NTUC‘s e2i, MOM, EDB, STB, IMDA and BCA.
The LED Scheme can also provide transitional manpower support where merited, to facilitate day-to-day operations if you need more time to complete the transformation to be within the dependency ratio ceiling or quota.
- Have temporary foreign workers while recruiting and training locals to take on better jobs.
- Pool foreign expertise at the industry level to help transfer know-how to your local employees.
