The 29 trade associations and chambers have released a joint statement.

As part of the Singapore Business Federation (SBF), 29 trade associations and chambers (TACs) have shown solidarity to pledge for fair hiring and employment practices through a joint statement.

Their statement is aligned with the Fair Consideration Framework and the Tripartite Guidelines for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices, which “underline employers’ commitment to preventing discrimination at the workplace and encouraging businesses to adopt progressive human resource practices."

The 29 TACs have come to declare their core principles, which include promoting positive workplace relations, practising fair hiring, and providing development opportunities.

“The Singapore business community plays a vital role in our economy in fostering an inclusive and diverse workforce. This joint statement underlines the importance for businesses to embrace fair hiring and employment practices and provides sustainable pathways to building a strong workforce for successful business in Singapore," SBF chairman Lim Ming Yan said.
