Aviva Singapore was recognised in two categories at the Tripartite Alliance (TA) Awards recently, for its efforts to build a ‘fair and progressive’ workplace.
The insurer received awards in the Fair and Progressive Employment Practices category, which recognises organisations with effective workplace and people practices, and the Work-Life Excellence category, which recognises excellence in work-life strategies that effectively maximise employee performance.
Aviva Singapore CEO Nishit Majmudar also received a leadership award (Fair and Progressive Employment Practices category) for his contributions in the area of fair and progressive employment practices.
According to the insurer, the recognitions are due to employee-first policies such as equal paternity and maternity leave of 16 weeks, as well as company-wide programmes and activities for staff well-being and engagement.
The TA Awards, which are held every two years, are conferred by the Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), National Trade Union Congress (NTUC) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM). It is judged by a panel of industry experts as well as representatives from the government, unions and employer associations, and Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP).
It was previously known as the Exemplary Employer Awards, which Aviva won in 2014 and 2016.
