Since 1967, Singapore has conscripted all eligible male citizens and permanent residents to serve National Service (NS). Today, these Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) form the backbone of Singapore’s defence, and may be our employees, co-workers, or strategic partners.

NS itself provides the foundation of the peace and stability that employers and businesses enjoy today. Thanks to the contributions of NSmen, we are able to continue to strive for prosperity and success.

We, as employers, must do our part to support our NSman employees in their NS commitments, and the Association urges every one of our valued members to stand behind them. Your actions can make all the difference to NSmen as they train to keep Singapore secure and be a conducive place to operate businesses – both today, and in the years to come. You will also be contributing towards promoting an inclusive, supportive work environment that will help us recruit and retain local talent.

To find out how you can support NSman employees and their NS commitments, please refer to this guide.

Our Warmest Regards,

ASPRI Secretariat
