SMF members received the TDA in recognition of their exemplary support towards National Service and Total Defence.

Many of these NS advocates are returning recipients of TDA. They hold a strong belief that everyone has a stake in the defence of Singapore and that employers’ support for their employees’ NS commitments is critical. NS advocates supported their NSman employees through implementing flexible work arrangements and/or recognising their achievements through company events and publicity platforms. They are indeed an inspiration for more members of SMF to join this exclusive league of TDA recipients.
