For the first time ever, over a hundred Vietnam based companies have been named the ‘Best Companies to Work for in Asia’ by HR Asia. Buoyed by a resurgent economy and a more competitive talent market, companies in Vietnam are pulling out all the stops to attract and retain their top talents.
A total of 115 companies won the awards this year, compared to 66 last year. Among the participating countries this year, Vietnam have the most number of winners, ahead of Taiwan with 96 winning companies. This is the fourth year that the awards are held in Vietnam.

The in-depth analysis provided companies with a unique 360-degree insight into their employees’ engagement, motivation and expectations as well as comparative data against industry and market averages.
“Vietnam based companies have shown that they can be world-class employers. The survey has shown that most companies have doubled up their efforts to become exemplary workplaces, while offering extensive benefits and a supportive and caring work environment”, said William Ng, group publisher and editor-in-chief of Business Media International, publisher of HR Asia.
The Awards and survey cover thirteen markets across the region including mainland China, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam making this the largest survey in the region for employee engagement and workplace excellence.
