On 1 July 1980, the Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) was established through the amalgamation of the SEF and the NEC. Before the merger, SEF had 591 members and NEC had 226 members. To date, membership totals to more than 3,300. SNEF is registered as a trade union under the Trade Unions Act.
It is the national trade union of employers, representing the interests of all sectors of the economy (and is thus the counterpart of the National Trades Union Congress, i.e. NTUC). It is an independent, autonomous not-for-profit organisation funded by membership fees and revenue from consultancy, training, research and other activities.
SNEF provides services to employers in these key areas:
- Represent the key interests of employers in national tripartite committees, forums and national-level reviews.
- Provide expert consultancy and advice to corporate members by experienced consultants on the proper application of local labour laws, policies and tripartite guidelines.
- Update corporate members on the latest important developments in labour, manpower and employment issues through briefings, industrial group meetings and other platforms.
- Enable employers to develop sustainable and competitive workforces through training programmes, organised by our Training Institute, and productivity programmes.
- Facilitate employers’ efforts to build an inclusive workforce and progressive workplaces through programmes focusing on workplace health, WorkPro, fair employment, and worklife balance.
