PMETs stands for “Professionals, Managers, Executives, and Technicians.” It’s a term commonly used in various countries, including Singapore, to refer to a specific segment of the workforce. PMETs typically include individuals who hold professional, managerial, executive, or technical positions in their respective fields.

These are roles that require specialised knowledge, skills, and qualifications, often obtained through higher education or extensive training. PMETs are typically involved in decision-making, planning, and overseeing various aspects of business operations or technical processes.

In the context of workforce discussions, policymakers and analysts often focus on PMETs due to their significant contribution to economic growth, innovation, and productivity. Additionally, there are often specific policies and initiatives that support the development, training, and employment opportunities for PMETs.
