Starting from July 2016 year, a company in Singapore can apply for up to S$300,000 in grants to fund job redesign projects targeted at workers aged 50 and older under the WorkPro scheme.
Restaurant chain Lawry’s has introduced a number of practical initiatives according to The Straits Times:
- e-menu system that allows its waiters and kitchen staff to use iPads to take and fulfil customers’ orders
- Automated physically strenuous processes such as knife sharpening and dishwashing
- Attendance is taken with a fingerprint detector, to spare workers the need to remember to take their ID cards to work
- Flexible work schedules
- Younger staff appointed as Silver Work Mentors, whom older workers can turn to for help
I wonder if Lawry’s has adopted similar Age-Friendly practices for their customer journey?
