Frequently Asked Questions

The Progressive Wage Model (PWM) helps to increase the wages of workers through upgrading skills and improving productivity.

It’s developed by tripartite committees consisting of unions, employers and the government. Since being implemented, PWM sectors have raised wages at a sustainable and meaningful pace without hurting the livelihoods of the lower-wage workers.

It can help you calculate the estimated increase in labor costs for full-time and part-time employees more accurately and easily through downloadable Excel templates.
The government has not released the wage requirement for the food service sector, hence we are using the retail sector as a benchmark for now. We will update the excel template once the government has released the wage requirement for the food service sector.

To effectively use the Excel file template and to calculate the estimated labor costs for full-time and part-time employees, you will need to enable macros. If you don’t, you will not be able to switch years to view year-on-year labor cost projections. Otherwise, we recommend use the Google Sheets template instead.

The PWM requirements cover all Singapore citizens and permanent residents who are:

1. Full-time or part-time employees in Food Service job roles on a contract of service, and

2. Employed by firms which hire foreign workers, regardless of whether the firm is classified under the Food and Beverage Singapore Standard Industrial Classification (SSIC) or another SSIC.

3. PWM will cover job roles such as Food Preparation and Wait Staff, Cook/ Senior Cook and Team Leader/ Assistant Supervisor/ Supervisor. There will also be minimum employee training requirements, such as Food Hygiene certification.

From 1 March 2023, employers must meet the PWM requirements to renew or apply for new work passes.

You can choose one or the other, but they have differing pros and cons.

For example, an increase in staff’s base wage leads to a corresponding increase in the overtime rate of each employee and the employer’s CPF, which results in higher costs. However, the base wage remains competitive in the industry, which will benefit your company in the long run.

On the other hand, if you decide to increase your employee allowance, you will incur lower short-term costs. However, your company will suffer compared to others offering attractive long-term pay.
