In group A for businesses which have been in Việt Nam for 15 years and have at least 100 employees and over VNĐ500 billion (US$21.4 million) in annual revenues, Unilever Vietnam was the overall winner.
There were awards for leading HR strategies in five categories: Best HR Strategy, Leading Workforce Planning and Resourcing, Leading Total Rewards, Leading Talent Management, and Leading Working Management.

Two judges’ choice awards went to Olam (Industry Pioneer) and Hoàn Mỹ Medical Corporation (Excellent Execution-Talent Acquisition).
Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Nguyễn Thị Hà said: “Vietnam HR Awards has not simply stopped at being a competition; it has evolved into a common playground for businesses and the HR community in Việt Nam.
“As a result, individual businesses’ pride and joy in winning each award has managed to spread exponentially, bringing excellent policies and strategies to the whole community.”
Tiêu Yến Trinh, Talentnet CEO, vice chairwoman of the awards organising committee and member of the jury, said: “Through every season, the Vietnam HR Awards brings with it a wish to accompany businesses in Việt Nam in their journey to self-assess their strengths and limitations in their own HR strategies, while encouraging businesses to learn from each other to optimise their policies to match their business goals.”
As part of the awards ceremony, a seminar on the topic “Bold Reflection” was held featuring “untold stories” from successful local and multinational corporations to encourage business leaders and HR professionals to constantly “look back” to improve strategy and unleash their growth potential.
Organised by Lao động& Xã hội (Labour and Social Affairs) newspaper and Talentnet, the third biennial awards attracted over 200 applications from local and multinational enterprises, with the number of the former going up by 30 per cent from the last edition. — VNS
