Updated Tripartite Advisory on Best Sourcing Practices & Employers Guidebook

The Tripartite Committee for Low-Wage Workers and Inclusive Growth (TriCom) has updated the Tripartite Advisory on Best Sourcing Practices to encourage service buyers to outsource responsibly and adopt best practices when doing so. This is the first update since the Advisory was launched in 2008, and the changes take into account feedback gathered over six months from industry stakeholders, unions, workers and the public. Recognising that service buyers’ procurement practices have a direct impact on their outsourced workers, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong had expressed the Government’s support for best practices in outsourcing. He stressed that outsourcing based on not just price but also quality, was one important way to ensure that low wage workers benefit from Singapore’s progress.

The updated Tripartite Advisory on Best Sourcing Practices incorporates feedback gathered on outsourcing practices, and provides greater clarity on how workers, service buyers and service providers can benefit from adopting the suggested practices.
