Launched on 8 September 2016, the Food Services Industry Transformation Map (ITM) highlights the need for a major makeover to combat manpower shortage and increase efficiency. Through collaborations with entities such as SPRING Singapore, Restaurant Association of Singapore and the Food, Drinks & Allied Workers Union, the ITM pushes the development of innovative food formats, adoption of technologies within local food and beverage establishments, and internationalisation. Strategies to attract more workers include job redesign, mapping out clear progression pathways and raising employees’ skills and versatility.
