Nexia TS Receives Recognition as a Human Capital Partner by TAFEP

mid-tier accounting firm in singapore awarded human capital partner by tafep


Singapore, 15 May 2018 – Nexia TS is proud to be a recognised Human Capital Partner under the Human Capital Partnership (HCP) Programme by the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP). HCP is a tripartite initiative that brings together a community of employers who are committed to grow their businesses and stay competitive by having progressive employment practices and developing their human capital. Currently, there are 220 companies being recognised under HCP in Singapore and we are proud to be one of the recipients.


In recognition of our human capital development efforts, the firm was presented the HCP certificate from the Second Minister for Manpower, Mrs Josephine Teo at the Conference on Fair and Progressive Employment Practices 2018 on 27 April 2018.


As a HCPartner, the firm can expect greater responsiveness from relevant government agencies and better access to its support and resources on manpower matters.


“The firmed endorsement from the state agency not only strengthens the relationship with our people as the employer of choice but also the commitment we uphold as a member of the UN Global Compact on human rights and labour. The integration of both best practices makes Nexia TS a fair and holistic workplace for our people to cultivate their skill sets and stay competitive at different career stages.”

Henry Tan, Managing Director, Nexia TS


The Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) promotes the adoption of fair, responsible and progressive employment practices among employers, employees and the general public. TAFEP is co-chaired by Mr Douglas Foo, Vice President, Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) and Mr Heng Chee How, Deputy Secretary-General, National Trades Union Congress (NTUC). Members include employer representatives, union leaders and government officials.


Leveraging its unique tripartite identity, TAFEP works in partnership with employer organisations, unions and the government to create awareness and facilitate the adoption of fair, responsible and progressive employment practices. TAFEP provides tools and resources, including training workshops, advisory services, and educational materials, to help organisations implement fair employment practices.
