Redesigning jobs helps IR stay on track for growth

By Ng Jun Sen,Business Correspondent

After nine years as a housekeeper at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), Madam Saadiah Martawi, 56, is no stranger to the hard work needed to clean up after guests who leave their rooms in a complete mess.

While her job may be tough now, it looks set to be more demanding in the near future, with Singapore's integrated resorts (IRs) pledging to pump in $9 billion here, which could add another half a million international visitors yearly and create an estimated 5,000 new jobs.

But some have questioned how Singapore's service sector workforce can keep pace with the hefty investments amid the impending cuts to the foreign worker dependency ratios for services, which force firms to hire more Singaporeans before they can recruit more foreigners.

Singapore will be reducing the service sector Dependency Ratio Ceiling in two steps, from 40 per cent to 38 per cent next year, and to 35 per cent in 2021, the Government announced during this year's Budget.
