NDO – The second "Outstanding Enterprise for Workers" award has been granted to eight enterprises that have deployed a range of activities to support their labourers.

The award ceremony was held in Hanoi on October 2. The award is run by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL) and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs in coordination with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI). The organisers give annual rankings and then present the award every three years.

The award was held for the first time in 2016, honouring 15 outstanding enterprises and 12 typical ones who were awarded with the Prime Minister’s Certificate of Merit for taking good care of their employees. The second award ceremony honoured 50 enterprises ranked in 2019, of which 30 were awarded certificates of merit from the organisers and eight leading enterprises were granted the award along with the Prime Minister’s Certificate of Merit.

Speaking at the ceremony, Politburo member and Head of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission Nguyen Van Binh affirmed that the award is a great source of encouragement for businesses and businessmen across the country to work hard together and share both the difficulties and achievements with their employees – their most valuable asset.

Although it was only initiated in 2014, the VGCL has quickly expanded the programme into a nationwide emulation movement that has motivated and encouraged enterprises to care for their workers' lives, while constantly improving the working environment and building harmonious and beneficial relationships between enterprises and employees as well as in connection with the interests of the society towards sustainable development in the process of international integration and the country’s development, Binh stated.

Chairman of the VGCL Nguyen Dinh Khang said that the award has created a profound social effect, encouraging enterprises to improve working conditions and employees’ welfare, and build harmonious, stable and progressive labour relations.

This activity not only creates an emulation movement to care for employees among enterprises, but also is one of the activities responding to the emulation movement "Vietnamese enterprises in active integration and development” launched by the Prime Minister in October 2016, Khang affirmed.
