Enhancing Society Together
Explore opportunities with us!
Enhancing Society TogetherRoyal HaskoningDHV has long been committed to the vision of working in partnership with clients to deliver projects that enhance the lives of people around the world.
This commitment applies equally internally as it does externally, with the company striving to create a stimulating and supportive atmosphere for employees.
DiversityDiversity of thought and perspective allows Royal HaskoningDHV to identify the opportunities and the best solutions for clients and the people affected by its projects. The worldwide network allows Royal HaskoningDHV to see both the global perspective and the local one, with in-country experts providing valuable insights into the local context.
Royal HaskoningDHV’s Vietnam office is proud that around a third of the workforce are women and the management team is making huge efforts to increase that proportion further still. The company has recently introduced a popular mentoring scheme which pairs female employees in the Vietnam office with female mentors elsewhere in the business, supporting the development of female staff and furthering their role within the firm and the industry.
Training and DevelopmentRoyal HaskoningDHV is a global firm and to support full communication both company-wide and with clients, the team in Vietnam are given English lessons. These are undertaken during the working day, providing not only an excellent chance to develop language skills but also a valuable team building opportunity. The lessons are provided by a certified, external provider and lead to an IELTS certification.
In addition to the language lessons the team in Vietnam has plenty of opportunities to develop technical and professional skills. Access to e-learning opportunities via an internal learning portal and training courses developed in-house, such as the “future learning journey”, all support skill building and career progression within the team.
Manh Thang Doan, Director Water Vietnam: “I’ve been with the firm for 17 years and over that time I’ve benefitted enormously from the support offered. Through the training provided and the experience I’ve gained, I’ve achieved several promotions. I’ve been contacted by other firms but none of them match the opportunities at Royal HaskoningDHV.”
Global opportunitiesThe team in Vietnam is responsible for a wide range of innovative projects in country but as a global firm their expertise is often called upon for projects around the world. This provides the Vietnam employees with some excellent opportunities to leverage the skills and experience of team members elsewhere in the firm and raise their profile within the company and the industry.
Team members are encouraged and supported to take up overseas secondments, allowing them to broaden their professional experience and enjoy a new challenge on a personal level.
Reward and recognitionThe regular company away weekends are not only an opportunity for team building away from the office but also for the team to reflect on the individual and team successes. Half of the employees have been part of the team for more than five years and a third of the employees have been with the company for at least 10 years. Awards are given out over the weekend to recognise this long service, as well as recognition for in-company initiatives by individuals such as the support offered to communities affected by the 2020 flood in Central Vietnam.
I joined the team in Vietnam quite recently, at the height of the Covid pandemic. It is a challenging time to start a new job, but the team were so supportive. There’s a culture of openness which allows you to turn to anyone for support if you need it rather than sticking to a rigid management structure. The benefits such as health insurance, IT equipment and support with remote working have made it a great move for me and I’m looking forward to developing my career at Royal HaskoningDHV.Linh Truc Ho, Business Development
Covid responseWhen the pandemic forced a huge change in working arrangements, Royal HaskoningDHV reacted quickly and effectively to support employees to transition to remote working. Providing chairs, IT support and internet dongles were just a few ways that staff were helped to establish their home office.
This swift action ensured that the company could help employees stay as safe as possible during the pandemic whilst ensuring they could continue to deliver high standards of work for our clients.
Flexible working and an appreciation of staff’s commitments outside of work has always been embedded in the culture of Royal HaskoningDHV and this approach made it easy for the firm to empower employees to adapt their working hours and location to adjust to the additional demands of childcare or remote working.
