British American Tobacco (BAT) Vietnam was honored for the first time ever with a 2016 Vietnam HR Award for “Manpower Planning & Resourcing” on September 28.

The award is presented jointly by Talentnet and the Labor and Social Affairs newspaper, the official publication of the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, to honor organizations in Vietnam with the best HR strategies.

The Vietnam HR Awards are the first of its kind for HR strategies in Vietnam and seeks to encourage and improve personnel management in the country to reach regional and global levels.

Nominees for the awards must pass through many rounds, including a short-list assessment and profile evaluation, presentation to a jury, and site visits before a final evaluation is made.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, Mr. Peter Henriques, General Manager of BAT East Asia Area, said that BAT Vietnam is very proud to receive the award. “Being part of the Vietnam HR Awards is also a great opportunity for our HR function to review what it has done to help the company achieve its business targets,” he said.

“People are the most valuable asset and a critical factor in BAT Vietnam’s success,” he went on, adding that the HR function is regarded as a strategic partner in carrying out the company’s business plans.

BAT Vietnam’s HR function proactively devises strategies to help the company execute its business strategies, such as in organizational structure, identifying the best-fit candidates to deliver business results and to thrive in the long-run, and providing training in necessary skills so that employees can perform most efficiently.

The success of BAT’s HR strategies is demonstrated through indicators in talent brand such as independent data volume, number of fans on social networks, and indices of identification, interest and application. More importantly, it has reduced dependency on headhunting agencies for acquiring talent.

Launched on May 15, the Vietnam HR Awards 2016 used a rigorous and objective selection process to recognize and honor enterprises that have displayed excellence in planning and implementing effective HR policies, contributing to business efficiency and performance and enhancing the quality of their employees’ lives.

Hundreds of businesses submitting dossiers and four professional rounds of judging over nearly three months showed the business community’s strong support for and awareness of the importance of HR management strategies.
