This is the second time the company has received this prestigious accolade for its constant efforts with diverse practical activities for its workers.

The awards ceremony, the second of its kind in Vietnam after the first one in 2016, was hosted by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL), in tandem with the MoLISA and the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Of the 50 award-winning businesses this year, Nestlé Vietnam is one of five businesses based in the southern province of Dong Nai to receive the award.

According to a VGCL representative, the award aims to inspire businesses to take good care of their employees, creating an efficient working environment that helps promote their employees’ capacity and working spirit.

Through the award programme’s set of criteria, “taking good care of the employees” is being quantified into a concrete set of criteria, motivating firms to set forth clear orientations and development targets, building a friendly working environment and a business culture like the employees’ second home.

Aside with human resource optimisation policy, Nestlé Vietnam also goes pioneer in expediting commitments on woman empowerment and gender equality.

At the awards ceremony held today, Truong Bich Dao, HR director of Nestlé Vietnam, shared the company’s practical experiences in countering the challenges brought by COVID-19 pandemic.

In her words, “Human” is the most essential factor in the five “priority” groups, including ensuring safety and benefits for the employees, optimising supply sources, optimising distribution channel, flexible in approaching consumers, and finally joining efforts to support the government and the community.

Specifically, despite the pandemic implications, Nestlé Vietnam has ensured incomes and other benefits for their employees.

The company has been realising its commitment to developing young generations through the “Management apprentices” programme. The company earmarks about VND18 billion ($782,600) annually to staff training both at home and abroad.

Not only going avant-garde in implementing human resource optimisation policy, Nestlé Vietnam also goes pioneer in expediting commitments on woman empowerment and gender equality.

In 2018, Nestlé Vietnam was among the signatories of the CEO Statement of Support for the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) with the UN Women and UN Global Compact at a forum hosted by UN Women in Hanoi.

In 2019, Nestlé Vietnam secured the third place in the list of 10 Best Places to Work for in Vietnam announced by leading human resources company Anphabe after continually harvesting high ranking in the tally from 2014.

Founded in 1995, Nestlé Vietnam has made ceaseless efforts for investment and business expansion to meet the ever-increasing demands from consumers. The company directly recruits more than 2,800 employees, and indirectly creates about 10,000 jobs for relevant stakeholders in their supply chain.
