The Organizing Committee of the Vietnam HR Awards 2018 announced 14 winning enterprises with leading human resources HR strategies at a ceremony on November 27, including Unilever for “Leading HR Strategy” and the Mobile World Group (MWG) for “Effective HR Practices”.

This is the third edition of the biennial award, co-organized by the Labor and Social Affairs newspaper and Talentnet and endorsed by the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA). The awards attracted over 200 applications from local and multinational enterprises. With the theme “Bold Reflection”, the 2018 awards featured a number of remarkable key highlights.

Part of the awards ceremony, the “Bold Reflection” seminar kick-started the evening with fresh perspectives and inspiring movements within the HR community aimed at lifting up HR management in the new technological era. It also looked closely at “untold stories” from successful local and multinational corporations, encouraging business leaders as well as HR professionals to continually “look back” in order to strengthen and improve strategies and unleash their growth potential in the new era.

“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 created and are creating solid touchstones for a blooming, fast-paced and agile workforce, in all industries and occupations alike,” Minister of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, Ms. Nguyen Thi Ha, told the ceremony.

After an arduous six-month period of receiving applications and presentations and conducting employee surveys and on-site visits, 14 outstanding businesses won a total of 28 awards, including two Best Winner awards, 24 category awards, and two Judge’s Choices awards.

“Aside from increased access and opportunities to implement new knowledge in data, processes, and artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0 has posed a looming equation for Vietnamese businesses to solve - one concerning the competitiveness of the workforce,” said Mr. Nguyen Trung Chinh, Acting Editor-in-Chief of the Labor and Social Affairs newspaper.

“In that context, the Vietnam HR Awards stand as a pledge towards the future workforce. And we believe that, through the participation and attendance of businesses throughout the year, the awards have and will continue to spread effective management models in the business community. The larger the number of businesses that focus on flourishing the strength of their people, the stronger our hope is for a robust workforce in a not-too-distant future.”

“Through every edition, the Vietnam HR Awards brings with it a wish to accompany businesses in Vietnam on their journey to self-assessing their strengths and limitations in their HR strategies, while encouraging them to learn from each other to optimize their policies to match their business goals,” said Ms. Tieu Yen Trinh, Talentnet CEO, Vice Chairman of the awards, and member of the Judging Panel.

“From a judge’s point of view, not only are we convinced that businesses are gradually getting more and more skillful in implementation but we are 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 who inspire and influence other businesses in Vietnam in efforts to lift the potential of our workforce and sustainable development.”
