2005 Work-Life Innovative Excellence Award 

Singapore’s efforts at work-life balance has gained recognition abroad.

Singapore wins 2005 Work-Life Innovative Excellence Award
Singapore has become the first Asian country, and also the first outside the United States, to win the prestigious Work-Life Innovative Excellence Award. The annual award by the US-based Alliance for Work-Life Progress is to recognise development and advancement of work-life effectiveness.

It is given this year to the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports for efforts by its Work-Life Unit to promote work-life harmony and create family friendly workplaces in the country...
Awards are nice, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating. As I have pointed out in previous posts (“What working women want”, “Perspective, please” and “More innovative businesses, fewer babies”) there is still little indication that the Ministry’s efforts are getting the results where they matter.
