Only 1 account can be created per organisation. The organisation can create 1 lead user login with up to 4 team member logins to facilitate the application. Team member accounts can be created by the lead user in the Dashboard.

While team member users can fill up the application form, only the lead user can submit the application for the organisation.

I am not a registered employer with SG Enable. How can I register?


You may register here.

Employers that are registered with SG Enable and have an account on the SG Enable Portal can benefit from the following:

  • Access to online job portal to post jobs and view/shortlist candidates.
  • Eligible for Open Door Programme (ODP) Grant funding support.

Alternatively, SG Enable can assist to create an account on the SG Enable Portal on behalf of the organisation when it creates an account on the Enabling Mark portal.

What will my organisation be assessed on?


In the application for the Enabling Mark, an organisation’s practices and outcomes in disability inclusion will be assessed over 6 categories:

  1. Leadership, Culture and Climate
  2. Recruitment Practices
  3. Workplace Accessibility and Accommodations
  4. Employment Practices
  5. Community Engagement and Promotion
  6. Extent of Inclusive Hiring

The overall maturity level of an organisation across the 6 assessment categories would thus determine the Enabling Mark tier that the organisation will receive – Silver, Gold or Platinum, with Platinum being the highest tier.

What kind of supporting documents should I include in my application?


Organisations are to provide further information / evidences and documents to support their selected options within the application form. Examples of relevant documents may include mission statement, internal communications, Employer Value Proposition, policy and forms (such as onboarding policy, performance evaluation form, procurement policy).

These supporting documents are to be uploaded onto the Enabling Mark portal, to be submitted with the application form. Please do not upload documents containing sensitive data (e.g. NRIC, employee information and confidential information). Any sensitive documents can be shown during the assessment session itself.

What is an Assessment session? Do I need to apply for it?


The Enabling Mark self-assessed (Gold/ Platinum) recipients will need to apply for assessment in order to receive the Enabling Mark. The organisation will receive a prompt to apply for the assessment session where applicable.

After applying for the assessment session, the organisation will be contacted by an assessor from SG Enable to schedule for an assessment session to run through the details of the application.

During this assessment session, you will be required to elaborate, clarify and share on the organisation’s practices in disability inclusion. This includes documentary reviews to support your application. Additional documentary evidences may also be requested at the assessor’s discretion.

What is a Consultancy session? Do I need to apply for it?


Enabling Mark (Silver) recipients may apply for consultancy services to have a better understanding of the Enabling Mark criteria and receive recommendations to support your organisation’s disability inclusion journey. The organisation may apply for the consultancy session in their account – Dashboard.

After applying for consultancy services, the organisation will be contacted by a consultant from SG Enable to schedule for a consultancy session to run through the summary report of your organisation’s maturity level in disability inclusion.

During this consultancy session, the consultant will review the organisation’s existing policies and practices in disability inclusion. After the session, the organisation will receive a report with recommendations to help the organisation progress in their disability inclusion journey.

What are the charges for the Assessment Session and Consultancy Services?


Assessment and consultancy fees are currently funded by the President’s Challenge 2020 Empowering for Life Fund for the first session, and will be waived until further notice.

An organisation who has utilised the one-time complimentary assessment session will not be eligible for a complimentary consultancy session, and vice versa.

Subsequent assessment and consultancy fees are chargeable.

How can I improve on my organisation’s disability inclusion practices?


Organisations who receive the Enabling Mark (Gold / Platinum) will receive a report on their disability practices and outcomes, with recommendations to support their disability inclusion journey.

Organisations who receive the Enabling Mark (Silver) may apply for further consultancy services to have a better understanding of the Enabling Mark criteria and areas for improvement.

Can past applicants and existing recipients reapply for the Enabling Mark?


Organisations may apply for the Enabling Mark when the validity period of its Enabling Mark expires. The latest Enabling Mark received will supersede any previous Enabling Mark awarded.
