Two awards won at the ‘Best Places to Work in Vietnam’ Summit 2018
ABB in Vietnam was named as one of “The Best Places to Work” and particularly “The Future Ready Organization” along with four other companies at the “Vietnam Best Places to Work Summit 2018” earlier this year. Anphabe, a career community for enterprise leaders and experts in Vietnam, in cooperation with Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, held the ceremony which attracted the presence of more than 600 enterprise leaders nationwide.
The event aimed to recognize businesses in two categories “The Best Work Places” and “The Future Ready Organization” based on the result of a survey conducted on 670 businesses operating in 25 industries. The latter award is especially noteworthy for ABB as it acknowledges its readiness for internal and external change, preparedness of employees’ capabilities, and ability to be a strong role model for the future.
