Fair Manpower Practices
With the majority of our members representing foreign-owned companies or including a portion of foreign talent within their workforce, it is important to understand the requirements and culture behind the Fair Consideration Framework (FCF) and other elements of non-discriminatory policies and practices. 
 
We encourage you to use the resources and tools provided on this Information Hub to manage your workforce requirements.
 
In this video from 2020, finalists in our Employer of the Year category at the 21st Annual Business Awards explain how they go about maintaining fair manpower practices in their own organisations. 
Finding Talent
Finding the right employees for your business needs is critical. Singapore's Fair Consideration Framework (FCF) emphasizes the need for all organisations, including those foreign-owned, to prioritise the employment and skills development of the local population. This is achieved through a balance of employment passes, quotas, recruitment and development programmes and continued monitoring.
 
The British Chamber of Commerce Singapore works closely with colleagues at the Ministry of Manpower and other agencies to maintain two-way dialogues between our business community and Government stakeholders at multiple levels of seniority. The following resources direct users to sources of talent recruitment in Singapore plus additional programmes for your consideration, where eligible.
