Manpower Hackathon


The inaugural Manpower Hackathon aimed at finding Singapore-wide solutions that could enable change and empower employees from the various service and construction sectors in Singapore. Participants came up with ideas that could help educate and inform employees across Singapore, or improve their workplace safety and health.

The three themes for this hackathon were:

  •  Improving Engagement with Workers
  •  Designing the Next Generation Work Pass
  •  Driving Excellence in Workplace Safety and Health



MOM’s first open innovation event saw developers, designers, safety professionals, data-crunchers and more awesome people come together and produce great prototypes, from an NFC-enabled smart Work Pass to SMS-based information platforms for foreign workers!

The top three winners of the Manpower Hackathon were invited to apply for the funding provided by the Public-Private Co-Innovation Partnership (CI Partnership) programme, after further evaluation by MOM. The CI Partnership funding is worth up to $250,000 for Proof-of-Concept.
