At this session, TAFEP will share how employers can differentiate themselves as a progressive employer in specific employment practices via adoption of Tripartite Standards. Employers will also learn more about the Ministry of Manpower (MOM)’s latest initiative – OneWorkplace.sg, which supports employers’ efforts to foster workplace integration.
