This can also improve their marketability, skills and knowledge for their future jobs.

Since the world’s advance technology have been improving each day, older workers must be able to catch up the development of the world which includes the technology advancement. One of the examples will be the use of computers, electronic gadgets in daily life of Singaporean. These gadgets plays an important role in Singaporean’s life and is considered as an essential equipment. Other than that, in the corporate world, these have been also integrated into the operation of the work and tasks. It have substantially improve the workflow and increase the working efficiency of many companies and institutions in Singapore. Therefore, the skills of understanding and knowing how to operate these devices are very crucial for many workers including older workers.

However, despite all these support from governments and training on older workers, we still need to have the support from the private institutions and companies to support the scheme in engaging older workers. Thus, we really hope that more local companies will continue or start to engage older workers in their proportion of workers in Singapore. We believe that having a proportion of elder workers in your companies will bring you more benefits than harm in the long term.
