Posted by temasektimes on August 9, 2012
Speaking at the Ministry of Manpower’s National Day observance ceremony on Wednesday, Mr Tan called on Singaporeans to work ‘smart’:
“We all know that we work many hours in Singapore, and that’s something that we ought to look at — whether we can be more efficient in the way we work, to work smart,” the acting minister said.
Mr Tan also urged Singaporeans to eradicate poor working habits without elaborating more on what they are:
“Personally, I think there are a lot of poor work habits, so we end up actually working longer than we need to. But, those are things that we can eradicate. Volume of work is one part.”
He added that Singapore must continue to attract foreign companies and ‘skilled labor’.
