Rallying its tripartite partners, employers, and employees across Singapore, the TA (tripartite alliance) contingent formed by the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) saw more than 1,000 participants including 62 organisations coming together to walk for fair and inclusive workplaces at Sunday's The New Paper Big Walk (18 November).

The contingent comprised Tripartite Alliance staff, tripartite partner representatives, industry partners as well as the newly-crowned Tripartite Alliance Award (TAA) winners and their employees.

Roslyn Tan, general manager, TAFEP said of the contingent's participants: "Although these companies come from different industries and sizes, they all believe in putting in place good employment practices and are committed to helping their people reach their fullest potential.

"Through this show of solidarity and support, we are sending a clear message of inclusion at the workplace, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, marital status, family responsibilities, or disability, and celebrating our workers' contributions."

As the main sponsor and a first-time participant in this year's walk, TAFEP aims to increase consciousness on the need to build fair and inclusive workplaces among employers and employees.

This year’s theme - "Agile Workforce, Better Workplaces" - was in line with TAFEP's mission to build better workplaces by championing fair, responsible, and progressive employment practices.
