Certification is the result of VNG’s continuous efforts to invest in people. Internally, employees are enabled to constantly improve their skills through online courses on Coursera, Udemy, coaching, mentoring programs with a total of 23,000 hours of training. Mr. Nguyen Duy Thin, an employee of VNG, said: “I find myself lucky to have been working here. My colleagues are both friends and mentors. As a company that develops products serving millions of people, each employee is facilitated to improve professional training. Besides, participating in sports activities held by the company such as gym, football competition, or the community race UpRace has helped me improve my health and bridge the gap between colleagues.”
In parallel, VNG also focuses on talent acquisition activities by implementing 60 different projects, which reached more than 9,000 students in 2022. Some of the notable projects are the Code Tour programming contest, and VNG University Week cooperating with 36 partners across the country. Nguyen Cong, a student at the University of Engineering and Technology, Vietnam National University, shared: “I had the opportunity to visit the VNG office through the VNG University Week program. I am impressed with the relaxed and friendly atmosphere here, as well as the modern facilities. Everyone is encouraged to raise their voice, and think outside of the box. This is what I look for when seeking a workplace.”
With the volatility of the recruitment market and changes in the needs of employees today, building a culture and working environment becomes highly important. This will create internal strength for the business and help retain talent. Sharing with GPTW at the Asean Greater Summit Singapore 2022 event, Ms. Dinh Kim Nhung – Human Resources Director of VNG emphasized: “We are very proud to be one of the representative enterprises in Vietnam to achieve this certificate. This is a motivation for VNG and other Vietnamese enterprises to improve further in the future.
