Organisations will be shortlisted for site visits based on the strengths of their applications.
Employers who qualify for the site visit are required to complete a questionnaire on human capital practices prior to the site visit. This questionnaire on human capital practices should be completed by the Business Leader and the Human Resource (HR) Leader.
During the site visit, an Employee Opinion Survey (applicable only if it is administered on-site), senior management and HR interviews, as well as employee focus groups and document reviews will be conducted. Nominees who have been shortlisted for the individual awards will also be interviewed during the same site visit.
To minimise logistics and to facilitate response time and analysis, organisations are encouraged to use the online Employee Opinion survey. This must be completed by the week of the organisation’s site visit. Those who opt for the on-site survey must ensure that pre-selected employees are present during the site visit to participate in the survey. Otherwise, organisations are required to look for replacement(s) with similar demographic profile to complete the survey to ensure that the responses are representative.
For more information on the site visits, refer to the FAQs on Site Visits.
The independent judging panel comprises representatives from the tripartite partner agencies, academics and industry experts.
Winners of the TAA 2023 will be unveiled at an Awards Ceremony in November 2023.
