Olam Vietnam Limited, a subsidiary of Olam International, has been named one of Vietnam’s best employers by global professional services firm Aon as part of the Aon Best Employers global certification.

The accolade from Aon follows on from Olam Vietnam being named among the best companies to work for by HR Asia Magazine in 2018.

“As a purpose-driven organization, we constantly strive to build an engaged team and provide our employees with the best environment they can thrive in,” said Mr. Prakash Jhanwer, President of Southeast Asia and China at Olam International. “We are very proud of our people in Vietnam, whose hard work and creativity have helped us establish differentiated and globally-competitive businesses around the country. We will work towards continual improvement in our quest to create value over the long-term, and remain committed towards being an employer of choice in Vietnam and globally.”

“We are honored to be named an Aon Best Employer,” said Mr. Joydeep Bose, President & Global Head of Human Resources at Olam International. “At Olam, we see our people as our true competitive advantage and are proud to be recognized for our ability to foster a work culture and shared values that attract and retain talented employees around the world.”

To achieve recognition through the Aon Best Employers certification, Olam was assessed on four measures:

  1. Employee Engagement: Employees speak positively about their employer, intend to stay and are motivated to exert extra effort at work.
  2. Organization Agility: Employees see that the organization is highly adaptive, innovative, inclusive and responsive to the changing needs of its customers.
  3. Engaging Leadership: Leaders are deeply connected with employees to drive engagement, communicate a clear vision and exert strong personal values.
  4. Talent Focus: Employees see that the organization is focusing on attracting and retaining great talent and accelerating to the extraordinary people’s potential

Olam Vietnam is among the country’s leading producers, processors and exporters of almond, ginger and nutmeg, and a significant buyer of Vietnamese rice. It is headquartered in Ho Chi Minh City, with offices and operations in Long An, Dong Nai, Dak Lak, Lam Dong, Gia Lai, and Phu Yen provinces and Quy Nhon city.

With almost 20 years of experience in best employer research across the world and backed by more than 50 years of experience in employee research and a robust global database, the Aon Best Employers certification compares organizations to identify those that strive to create a sustainable competitive advantage through their people and become extraordinary employers.
