According to the Mercer 2010 Talent Retention Survey, implementing flex that offers staff choice is seen as the top benefits strategy for staff retention and satisfaction.

To ensure that HR professionals are equipped with the knowledge and skills to develop and better manage such plan or program and do not violate any statutory regulation/law such as the CPF and Income Tax.
