Update: December, 02/2020 - 14:59

Abbott has been awarded a leading rank among Viet Nam's 100 Best Places to Work by the Anphabe survey this year. The recognition in Viet Nam affirms Abbott’s leadership in the healthcare industry for seven years in a row, creating an innovative and winning culture to empower employees to reach their full potential.

Marking its 25 years of operation in Viet Nam in 2020, Abbott was honoured No.1 in Pharma/Medical Equipment/Healthcare for seven consecutive years, No.2 in FMCG and No.5 Across Industry in the list of 100 “Vietnam Best Places to Work 2020”, according to the annual survey conducted by local career network Anphabe with over 70,000 experienced working professionals.

“Abbott always encourages renovation, highly evaluating vanguards who are ready to make a difference, and develops a strong local team by providing opportunities for them to move up in career. The leading rank once again comes through with Abbott’s strong long-term commitment, purpose and dedication of employees doing what matters and delivering impact every day,” said Mr. Douglas Kuo, General Manager of Abbott in Vietnam.

Abbott places people at the core of its business and the company has been engaging employees to help them understand the values and difference of work at a leading global healthcare company. Working for Abbott can mean changing the life of someone in your hometown, across the country or even halfway around the world. The work also means to improve the lives of millions worldwide.

For a quarter of century expanding in Viet Nam, Abbott has built sustained and stable business growth, developed strong local talent and offered significant opportunities. Headquartered in the US city of Chicago, the company has continuously brought to Viet Nam breakthrough innovations in Nutrition, Medicines, Diagnostics, and Medical devices.

Vietnamese consumers are familiar with premium nutritional products such as Similac HMO, Ensure Gold, PediaSure, Prosure and Glucerna. Furthermore, Abbott’s diagnostics solutions, laboratory information and automation, technologies in immunology, clinical chemistry, hematology, and point of care tests are widely used in healthcare institutions, clinics and laboratories to assist blood screening, diagnostics and treatments.

While Abbott’s medicines help millions of patients in several therapeutic areas including gastroenterology, women's health, cardiology, primary care and specialty care, the company advances the treatment of heart and vascular disease through breakthrough medical technologies that are less invasive, allowing people to restore their health and get on with their lives. Abbott has introduced its breakthrough products in Viet Nam, including MitraClip, an award-winning catheter-based device that improves the quality of life for people with common heart valve disorder. Abbott also works with stakeholders in Viet Nam to tackle healthcare challenges and help Vietnamese people live healthier and better lives. 

The continuous investment in Viet Nam’s businesses reflects Abbott’s long-term commitment to better serve local consumers. Employees are provided with opportunities to develop their careers in Abbott and have all the resources to achieve success in their working environment in the home country or abroad with international movement opportunities. The opportunities in Viet Nam include diversified training curriculums for employees at all levels and especially the Vietnam Leadership Program. Employees are entitled to build their individualised development plans in Career Connect global resource and access to Global Training site and virtual instructor-led training.

For the creation of the winning culture to support talent development, Abbott has received international recognition, such as being No. 1 in People Management on Fortune Most Admired Companies list, an inclusion in Fortune magazine’s Change the world list for two years and voted 100 Best Companies by Working Mother magazine for 20 years in a row, a 2020 NAFE (National Association for Female Executives) Top Company for Executive Women for the 12th year in a row, reflecting its commitment to giving women the opportunity to innovate and lead.
