SPRING Singapore will launch a study to help the retail sector become labour-lean and create higher value-added jobs under a manpower plan for the sector rolled out on Thursday at Clarke Quay Central.

Announcing the "business model and job redesign" study, Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say said retail bosses can also use the study findings, which will identify skills and training needs for upcoming retail jobs, as a guide to "restructure and adapt" to the new retail landscape, one where e-commerce is changing the traditional retail trade and where business costs are rising and workers are scarce.
