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 enterprises.
Financing of measures to determine the rating 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 Chamber of Commerce and Industry – 50 million soums.

Winners will be defined in five categories: “For the creation and development of jobs”, “For the 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.”
