新加坡员工获准于周一2020年9月28日起重返工作场所

Sep 27, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership

想念办公室的新加坡员工,振作起来!从2020年9月28日周一开始,你们可以回到各自的工作场所啦。

人力部更新了对工作场所安全管理措施的要求,该要求将于9月的最后几天生效。

这是自4月7日推行“断路器”措施以来,对工作场所限制的最为明显的放宽。

随着社区中新冠病例持续减少,逐步地重返办公室也被准许,这为重新开放经济和恢复疫情前的工作生活铺平了道路。

至少有一半时间在家工作

新加坡不会不加管制地让员工重返办公场所。

雇主必须确保员工可以回到办公室,但至少有一半的时间可以继续在家工作。

根据这一规定,任何时候在工作场所工作的员工都不能超过重返员工的半数。

新加坡鼓励雇主实行弹性工作制并且错开汇报时间。

允许在工作场所进行的活动

只要安全距离措施到位并在工作场所内进行,企业务虚会和年度股东大会等研讨会将被准许恢复。

不过,目前仍禁止在外部场地举行与工作相关的活动。

商务旅行注意事项

根据一项新的试点计划,承担大量区域或国际职责的高级管理人员将获准进行必要的商务旅行。

在试行中,新加坡经济机构将发放数量有限的通行证。

严格遵守行程安排

旅行者必须遵守“严格控制的行程”。

旅客在返回新加坡以后可选择进行新冠检测,而不用在检测结果出来前居家自我隔离。

PSP's Tan Cheng Bock voted out as Sec-Gen after alleged party infighting

Apr 01, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership

Former Republic of Singapore Air Force colonel Francis Yuen has been appointed secretary-general of the Progress Singapore Party (PSP), taking over from party founder Tan Cheng Bock.

Dr Tan, 80, has become party chairman. This was announced by the PSP on Thursday (April 1), after its central executive committee (CEC) met on Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, PSP Non-Constituency MP Leong Mun Wai said Mr Yuen was the committee's unanimous choice to "lead PSP to the next level".

"Francis will lead and galvanise the party while (Dr Tan) concentrates on strengthening external support for PSP," he wrote.

Chairman role is basically a glorified flower pot

In many organisations around the world, the Secretary-General position has the authority to make all the decisions of running the organisation - or party. The Chairman generally does not have any more power pe se than any other voting member of the Executive Committee, except the power to run board meetings.

Comparatively, the Secretary-General is like the Chief Executive Officer of the company.

For example, the People's Action Party chairman is Gan Kim Yong while the Secretary-General is Lee Hsien Loong.

Party infighting?

The change comes amid reports of a rift in the party. An online news site, the RedWire Times, said in March that some party cadres have demanded for Dr Tan to step down as secretary-general, and allow for "more talented rising stars" to take over.

Commenting on the Redwire Times report, PSP member Kumaran Pillai said the new CEC line-up is in no way a reflection of any disagreement over the leadership of the party. Rather, Mr Yuen assuming the secretary-general role is part of a planned transition, he added.

“When Dr Tan started the party, he said he will mentor someone younger, and he hasn’t deviated from his original mission. People shouldn’t be reading too much into it.”

Mr Pillai added that he had a long dialogue with the party cadre who was quoted anonymously by Redwire Times as saying that some cadres are mustering support to demand for Dr Tan to step down from his post.

“His intention is not to stage a coup within the party. I think people have misinterpreted it and misunderstood what he said, sometimes it's like playing broken telephone, you say one thing and by the time you get to the last person, the whole story gets distorted along the way... there’s no infighting, there's no malice,” he said.

In other words, the flower pot needs watering.
