Vietnam HR Awards 2018 honoured the 14 businesses with leading strategic HR models
This is the third season of the biennial award, co-organised by the Newspaper of Labour and Social Affairs and Talentnet, endorsed by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA). The award attracted over 200 applications from local and multinational enterprises.
With the theme 'Bold Reflection,' the Vietnam HR Awards Ceremony 2018 brought with it a number of remarkable key highlights, including a holistic, straightforward, and valuable series of success stories from leading local and regional businesses, practical lessons about the implementation of HR strategies in Vietnam, as well as honouring and awarding 14 businesses with outstanding strategic HR models.
After an arduous six-month period of application, presentation, employee survey, and on-site visit, 14 outstanding businesses were granted a total of 28 awards, including two Best Winning prizes, 24 categories, and two Judge’s Choices awards.
In Group A, Unilever Vietnam has won the Leading HR Strategy’s Best Winning Company award for its astoundingly effective HR policies. Nguyen Thi Bich Van, CEO of Unilever shared, “We are both delighted and honoured to be recognised for the second consecutive time as the “Best Winner” of the Vietnam HR Awards. This reaffirms our commitment towards our people development as well as lifting up the Vietnamese workforce in general. The awards also highlight the effectiveness of our HR policies as well as training and development strategies which reflect leading practices in the world in order to provide updated knowledge for our staff to grow."
Meanwhile, in Group B, Effective HR Practices’ Best Winning Company award went to Mobile World. The representative of the company shared that, “The award is a proof of our restless efforts and commitment for continuous investment in our workforce. We have been focusing on building a unique corporate culture, improving our working environment and HR-related policies so that our employees can enjoy both tangible and intangible benefits at their best."
According to Nguyen Thi Ha, Deputy Minister of the MoLISA, Vietnam HR Awards has built and nurtured this connecting bridge between businesses and the community for the past few years, especially with the honourable aim to lift the domestic workforce’s potential. The progressive, multi-dimensional, and highly analytical views, the valuable inspirations from leading businesses’ success stories, and the straightforward conversations within the HR community have, and are creating solid touchstones for a blooming fast-paced and agile workforce, in all industries and occupations alike.
Tieu Yen Trinh, Talentnet CEO cum vice chairman of the award and member of the judging panel, commented: “Through every season, Vietnam HR Awards brings with it a wish to accompany businesses in Vietnam on their journey to self-assess their strengths and limitations in their own HR strategies, while encouraging businesses to learn from each other to optimise their policies to match with business goals."
"From a judge’s point of view, not only were we convinced that businesses are gradually getting more and more skilful in implementation, but we were also impressed by how far these businesses have reached in catching up with international standards. I firmly believe that the winners will be the ones inspiring and influencing other businesses in Vietnam in the effort of lifting the potential of our workforce and sustainable development,” she added.
