More companies have been lauded for their good employment practices this year by Singapore's anti-discrimination watchdog.

The number of submissions for the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (Tafep) Exemplary Employer Award has risen 30 per cent since the last time the awards were held.

Eight companies picked up overall wins at this year's awards ceremony on Monday. The biennial award recognises organisations who champion fair and progressive employment practices.

More smaller companies participated as well - there were 36 submissions from small and medium-sized enterprises this year, compared to 15 two years ago.
