Viet­nam: Em­ployee-friendly T&C com­pa­nies leav­ing a mark!

Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

Viet­nam is, of late, see­ing the emer­gence of sev­eral com­pa­nies that seem to be car­ing a lot for its em­ploy­ees. Pro­trade Gar­ment Co. Ltd., one of the lead­ing gar­ment ex­port com­pa­nies in Viet­nam, could be ex­em­plary for sev­eral gar­ment­ing firms across the coun­try.

Ex­plain­ing the ini­tia­tives taken, Peter Ngo, Vice Di­rec­tor, Pro­trade Gar­ment Co. Ltd. averred, “We have dor­mi­tory (for both male and fe­male work­ers) where peo­ple live with­out hav­ing to pay any­thing. Since most of the work­ers are ladies, we en­sure that they do not face prob­lems with their small kids and there­fore, we have opened kinder­gartens for the chil­dren. We also pro­vide free lunch and if the work­ers have to do over­time, then we pro­vide free din­ner as well.”

The com­pany also runs su­per­mar­kets wherein the cost of the prod­uct is lower than the mar­ket price. Ad­di­tion­ally, it pro­vides free bus ser­vices to send work­ers to their hometown for leave and then bring them back once the leave pe­riod ends.

On the same lines, Le & Le Gar­ment and Wash­ing, JSC too has been pro­vid­ing free bus ser­vices for all its em­ploy­ees. “Or­ga­ni­za­tion is like a fam­ily. We have buses to drop and pick em­ploy­ees. We build houses for em­ploy­ees and they can pay the amount in 10 years. Also we are build­ing schools where we have em­ployed trained teach­ers from the Philip­pines and US. We are giv­ing back some­thing to the com­mu­nity,” said Romeo M Or­das, Coun­try Man­ager, Le & Le Gar­ment and Wash­ing, JSC, which has also been us­ing en­vi­ron­ment-friendly chem­i­cals so that there is no harm to the health of em­ploy­ees.

An­other lead­ing ex­port house, Bando Vina Co. Ltd. has also taken sev­eral ini­tia­tives for the wel­fare of its em­ploy­ees. “We give in­cen­tives to our work­ers de­pend­ing on their pro­duc­tiv­ity of each pro­duc­tion line. Then we run do­na­tion pro­grammes and also sup­port some schools near our fac­to­ries,” men­tioned Brian Lee, Gen­eral Man­ager, Bando Vina Co. Ltd.
