"SINGAPORE: A new award was launched on Wednesday (Oct 3) to recognise local small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are trying to adapt to a world where technology is increasingly disrupting businesses.
Jointly launched by NTUC U SME and United Overseas Bank (UOB), the SME Digital Leap Awards are said to be the first and only award here that acknowledges SMEs for their digitalisation efforts.
The companies will be assessed in three areas, namely digital enablement, employee development and leadership direction.
There will be three categories for SMEs: Micro-SMEs with 30 or fewer employees, companies with up to 100 employees and larger firms with not more than 200 workers.
Employees who have played key roles in their companies' digitalisation efforts will also be recognised in a separate category...
SMEs that qualify can submit their entries from Nov 19, 2018 to Feb 15, 2019."
