Singapore, 20 November 2018 – Nexia TS is honoured to be recognised as Champion of Good on 16 November 2018, a national recognition framework under the Company of Good, developed by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), designed to catalyse the corporate giving movement and build a City of Good.
Champions of Good recognises organisations that have not only been exemplary in their corporate giving efforts, but have also been an influencer and multiplier by engaging their partners and stakeholders on a collaborative giving journey.
As a socially responsible corporate citizen, Nexia TS strives to contribute to the society at large – beyond the business domain. Besides the impact that our efforts have had on the larger community in the education, environment and community welfare space, our participation collectively as a firm has the most positive effect of skills-based volunteerism on employees.
“Being recognised as a Champion of Good is pat on our back for the philanthropy efforts that the firm has contributed to the community. Nexia TS may not be the giant in our field but that doesn’t stop us at championing big for a cause. With our unwavering commitment to giving back sustainably, we hope to spur more businesses to lead, connect and be part of this corporate giving journey.”
Henry Tan, Group CEO and Chief Innovation Officer, Nexia TS

Creating a strong business and building a better world are not conflicting goals. Rather, they are both essential ingredients for long-term success. At Company of Good, we help companies to do good well, and to benefit both their business and the community while doing so.
