Progressive Wage Model (PWM) 2021 – Security Industry

Progressive Wage Model (PWM) 2021 – Security Industry

What is the Progressive Wage Model?

The Progressive Wage Model (PWM) for the security industry was developed by the Security Tripartite Cluster (STC) to encourage both employers and security officers to upgrade their skills and increase productivity through the productivity-based wage progression pathway. Since September 2016, all security agencies are required to pay their security officers according to the PWM wage ladder according to the PWM requirements for them to renew or obtain their licences.

 

Overtime Exemption (OTE) Removal from 1 January 2021

The security industry was previously exempted from the overtime limit of 72 hours per month due to the nature of the job. The tripartite partners have since agreed to remove the OTE for the security industry as of 1 January 2021. This will give all security officers two additional days of rest a month while earning a better salary with the Progressive Wage Model (PWM).

 

How does it affect me as a Security Officer (SO) in 2021 and beyond?

The Progressive Wage Model (PWM) helps to increase the wages of security personnel through encouraging workers to upgrade their skills and increasing their overall productivity. With the Progressive Wage Model (PWM), security personnel can expect an average increase in wages by 3%. The PWM covers Singapore citizens and Singapore permanent residents (PRs).

  • More rest days per month without affecting wages.
  • More opportunities to upgrade your skills.
  • Reduced minimum year-in-grade requirements = Quicker promotions
  • Higher PWM rank = Better wages

 

In short, you will gain more skills through upgrading, able to climb the PWM rank faster, increase your productivity, work lesser hours per month, steady growth in wages annually!
