The Best of the Best
Uzbekistan may soon have its own rating system of one hundred most efficient enterprises (top 100).
The government, together with the Ministry of Employment and Labor Relations, as well as a number of other specialized agencies, are now studying the introduction of the methodology for drawing up such a rating of employers by January 1, 2018.
It will be based on an assessment of their activities to create and preserve jobs, the employment of graduates, former military personnel and persons with disabilities, and the provision of decent working conditions. At the same time, it is planned that the top-100 will be formed every year until December 15 and published in the media with the delivery of certificates to the enterprises.
Financing of the rating measures will be taken by the non-budgetary Employment Fund with an annual allocation of 30 million soums, the Federation of Trade Unions of Uzbekistan - 50 million soums and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry - 50 million soums.
In addition, the government proposes to establish a national contest «Social responsibility and efficiency», during which the best companies in this direction will be encouraged.
Winners will be defined in five categories: «For the creation and development of jobs», «For employment of persons in need of special measures of social protection in the labor market», «For effective labor protection and creation of safe working conditions», «For the development of social partnership « and «Active youth policy at the enterprise.»
