HCM CITY (VNS) — More than 50 per cent of Unilever's global revenues come from emerging markets, with high growth in markets like India, Turkey, Brazil, and Viet Nam, JV Raman chairman of Unilever Viet Nam, said.
Speaking in HCM City on Thursday at Career Day, held as part of the Unilever Future Leader Program, he said the key to succeed in the Vietnamese market is to grow young Vietnamese talent into business leaders for both Viet Nam and other parts of the Unilever global business through its training programmes.
"Developing human resources is one of the commitments in the sustainable development strategy of the company."
One of these is the Unilever Future Leader Program, a management trainee programme launched in 1998 for graduates with less than one year's experience.
Every year the company recruits 12-15 leaders through the programme for various areas like marketing, sales, accounting, supply chain, manufacturing, and human resources. This year the programme received over 1,500 applications. — VNS
