The programme is organised by Anphabe in coordination with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AmCham), European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (EuroCham), and Australia Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AusCham).
Having passed many strict evaluation rounds from competency profiles, employee surveys, and endorsement from the Advisory Board for nearly 100 participating organisations, Sanofi Vietnam is one of 24 excellent role model enterprises. The senior leaders of Sanofi Vietnam were conferred the “Leadership Excellence” award, in the category of “People Champion”, including:
• Emin Turan - general manager of General Medicines and Country Lead for Sanofi Indochina
• Penn Policarpio – current head of Consumer Healthcare (CHC) for Turkey and Middle East (former general manager of CHC, Sanofi Indochina).
• David Tick – general manager of Sanofi Pasteur, Indochina.
• Eric Auschitzky – general manager of Industrial Affairs, Sanofi Vietnam.
As specified by the criteria, the recognised individuals or teams are dedicated leaders who have many specific activities to support the organisations in attracting, developing, and retaining the right talent pool, as well as building a working environment that encourages internal promotion opportunities and nurtures the next generation of leaders.

Emin Turan, general manager of General Medicines & Country Lead for Sanofi Indochina, shared, “Building a people-oriented workplace has always been a top priority of the management board of Sanofi Vietnam. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenging period to business activities, operations, and human resource policies as we committed to the health and safety of employees, maintained connection within the organisation, ignited inspiration and promoted employees’ capacity enhancement all at once. This award is not only an appreciative recognition but also a motivation for the management board of Sanofi Vietnam to go the extra mile to build a diverse, inclusive, and harmonious working environment for all staff.”
In particular, Sanofi Vietnam adopted a wide range of HR policies to take care of its workforce, by allowing employees to work from home from the end of May 2021 to minimise the risk of being infected by COVID-19; introducing paid leave policy for employees or their relatives affected by COVID-19; making an effort to ensure all physical and mental conditions to uphold the working and living environment for production staff; attempting to maintain a source of income for employees during the epidemic; and implementing virtual sharing, networking, and learning programmes to foster the positive spirit and proactive work ethic for employees.
So far, flexible and thorough policies have supported Sanofi Vietnam as a whole to connect, improve work efficiency, and be ready to face upcoming challenges.
