The award is significant since there has been an international trend for countries to uphold the highest standards of industrial relations in work places, the BOI said.

In fact the development of harmonious labor relations has become a discipline in its own right and enterprises now seek to develop an ongoing dialogue between workers and management.

Furthermore with the need to secure timely production and supply discerning global markets without any delay, it is a prerequisite that production deadlines are met. Harmonious relations within the workplace therefore, is necessary and indeed a vital component to any modern economy. Hence it is important that both management and the workforces of enterprises are clear on the need to work together to achieve the enterprise's success.

The award is an annual event that covers 4 sectors including Plantation, Manufacturing, Services and Apparel. The participating enterprises are categorized as being Large, Medium or Small Scale, depending on the size of their respective work forces.

This competition was aimed at identifying the extent to which there was mutual understanding between the employer and employee, the ability to understand the opinion of others and team work within the organization.
