At the Tripartite Alliance Award (TA Award) held last evening, Aviva was recognised for its achievements in building a fair and progressive workplace.
Aviva won in two categories:
- 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.
Chief Executive Officer Nishit Majmudar also bagged a Leadership Award (Fair and Progressive Employment Practices) for his outstanding leadership and exceptional contributions in the area of fair and progressive employment practices.
Aviva’s recognition is the result of its strong focus of putting employees at the heart of its people initiatives. This is exemplified through fair and progressive policies such as the introduction of equal paternity and maternity leave of 16 weeks, as well as company-wide programmes and activities that drive well-being and engagement.
Conferred by Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), National Trade Union Congress (NTUC) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the award recognises exemplary organisations for its fair, responsible and progressive employment practices.
Employers were assessed by industry experts as well as representatives from the government, unions and employer associations and Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP).
Held once every two years, the TA Awards was previously known as the Exemplary Employer Awards, which Aviva won in 2014 and 2016.
