Job Redesign


Successfully managing your multi-generational workforce means carefully evaluating your existing HR policies and systems to maximise your employee resources and reach organisational goals accordingly. Flexibility when introducing changes is important. Show that you welcome challenges and opportunities arising from the presence of your multi-generational workforce. Apart from examining your rules and regulations, you should also take a look at your employees’ job roles to find areas for growth, and redesign them as needed to meet the needs of your employees and of your organisation as a whole. 

Employers who wish to relook at their workplaces to accommodate an ageing workforce can tap on WorkPro’s Job Redesign Grant. This Grant provides funding support to create physically easier, safer and smarter jobs for older workers aged 50 years and above. Under this Grant, companies can apply for funding of up to $300,000 to redesign jobs or purchase equipment for older workers in order to improve the workplace environment and work processes. Companies who embarked on the Inclusive Growth Programme (IGP) or the Capability Development Grant (CDG) may also apply for the Job Redesign (Rider) if the project brings positive impact on older workers. Tap on the grant to develop an age-friendly workplace to support your older workers today!


The main objective of job re-design is to alter job elements so that companies can achieve maximum output. When we talk about increasing output, we mean an increase in employee engagement, efficiency and productivity, improved quality and higher organisational branding. When done right, job redesign will allow your organisation to enjoy the following benefits:

  • Increase In Employee Performance And Productivity

Performing regular assessments of your employees’ job demands and changing their work scope to allow an adjustment in their responsibilities is one way of investing in your human capital. For example, introducing new technologies or automating the workplace could make your employees’ work more efficient, giving them time to focus on more productive tasks. A change in the work scope can lead to an increase in performance and productivity, thus, increasing your company’s bottom line.

  • Increase In Employee Motivation

By redesigning your employees’ jobs, you will notice a significant improvement in their attitude towards work. Older employees, in particular are able to have greater ownership of the work completed. When you take repetitive tasks out of the equation, you give your employees more opportunities to grow and take on more fulfilling roles. Technological advancements can facilitate their work, at the same time make the workplace an easier and smarter place to work in. The result - greater job satisfaction.

  • Spearhead Best Practices For The Industry

Employers taking advantage of new technologies or service delivery models in their job redesign efforts can position themselves at the forefront of their industry. Your organisation could be one of them if you put your creative ideas to work and readjust internal job functions among your employees. This, in turn, will be good for organisational branding, and being recognised as a ‘thought leader’ and/or ‘Employer of Choice’.
