How does the New PTRG benefit employers?
Employers will receive funding support to implement part time re-employment policy for its senior workers. At the same time, the adoption of the TS-AWP specifies a set of good age management practices for employers to implement at the workplace, to treat
older workers fairly and provide them with support in areas such as training and workplace health programmes. By adopting TS-FWA and offering FWAs in their HR policy, employers will be able to support greater provision of FWAs and attract more senior
workers to remain in the workforce. Additionally, committing to provide SCP to mature employees in the HR policy and sending their company representatives to attend the SCP workshop will increase the adoption of SCP, which will help senior workers
stay relevant in the workforce and enable employers to benefit from retaining experienced and well-trained workers.
How does New PTRG benefit employees?
Companies which successfully applied for the New PTRG will need to ensure their employees are offered the option to reduce their work intensity and undertake part-time work arrangements during the re-employment phase. If the company is not able to find a suitable part-time vacancy during the re-employment phase, eligible employees will be entitled to an Employment Assistance Payment.
