The Security Productivity Initiative (SPI) was introduced in September 2017 as part of WSG’s efforts to support the Security Industry Transformation Map (ITM). With a structured Job Redesign (JR) Framework, the SPI guided companies to become manpower-lean with security technology adoption, job redesign and adoption of human capital best practices.
Since the implementation of the Security ITM, the Security Industry has been transforming to deliver advanced services through technology adoption and better security outcomes. This encourages companies to further develop their security personnel and to create better and quality jobs in order to sustain the changes in business operations. The SPI is enhanced to guide and support companies on workforce transformation, through job redesign and human capital development.
The SPI is for security companies who are keen to create quality jobs and meaningful careers for their workforce through job redesign (JR). Security service buyers may also benefit from the strategies and resources related to Outcome-Based Contracting (OBC) and Manpower-Lean Models.
Under the SPI, the following resources are available to help companies embark on and sustain job redesign and workforce transformation efforts. Companies which are interested in funding support can access the list of government support programmes through the “Guide to Security Workforce Transformation”, or get in touch with WSG via the contact information provided below.
(i) Guide to Security Workforce Transformation
Developed by WSG, the Guide to Security Workforce Transformation is a self-help resource to guide stakeholders in the security industry in JR techniques, as well as methodologies to transform their workforce. It comprises the following key components:

(ii) Job Redesign Workshops
In collaboration with Temasek Polytechnic – Security Industry Institute (TP-SII), the JR Workshop is aligned with the ‘Best Sourcing’ and ‘Technology and Innovation’ strategies of the Security ITM. It encourages security employers and buyers of security services to implement ready-to-adopt technology solutions, adopt Outcome-Based Contract (OBC) and operate in manpower-lean models, and introduce progressive Human Capital practices through JR for their employees.
Companies can enjoy subsidised course fees for their Singapore citizen and permanent resident employees.
