The Department of Quality Awards under the 2005 Productivity Charter is required to work in close association with its social partners – government, employers and union representatives and assist in recommending appropriate productivity initiatives to be undertaken. In addition, the National Training & Productivity Centre is also required to carry out a number of key functions to raise productivity in the nation.
