Using data driven insight to make sense of the ageing workforce and retirement in Singapore

FYT was featured on Singapore national current affairs program - Talking Point on 17 Sep 2014; to help provide an objective and data driven perspective to the sensitive topic of retirement as well as adjusting to an ageing workforce in Singapore. Key highlights:

  • Singapore's workforce over age 60 stands at 11% (2013 MOM data)

  • While this appears quite high, it is not unique to Singapore. Workforces aged over 60 in Japan is 18% and 15% in S Korea

  • There is a growing market for mature workers

  • While the population aged over 60 grew at 6% CAGR in the past decade, the workforce aged over 60 grew at 12% CAGR over the same period

  • While the data is not able to determine the quality and pay of jobs in this segment; it does indicate that there is a market of willing employees and employers.

  • Retirement is going to be constantly redefined in Singapore
