Work-life harmony comes easy for civil servants

Work-life harmony comes easy for civil servants
Singapore - Singapore civil servants are now better able to juggle their family and work commitments than before, said Teo Chee Hean, Minister-in-charge of the Civil Service.

Responding to a question in parliament recently, Teo said that this finding was garnered from a biennial survey in 2009. The survey found that civil servants are becoming increasingly more aware of the various work-life practices and policies in their organisations.

The survey also found that 53% of civil servants say their agencies were successful in helping their employees achieve work-harmony, an increase from 46% in 2005. More civil servants also reported that they "were able to find time for family, friends, and things they enjoy doing".
