This steadfast commitment to ensuring employees' health and safety was made clear through the company's Wellbeing Programme, which kickstarted on National Health and Safety Day. On this occasion, employees were given a day off to take part in mentally fulfilling activities in the morning and spend quality time with their friends and families in the afternoon.

The initiative also features regular health check-ups and highly competitive health insurance packages. Carlsberg Vietnam goes the extra mile to provide various additional insurance benefits to give its employees and their families a sense of security.

Onno Rombouts, managing director at Carlsberg Vietnam stated, "At Carlsberg Vietnam, comprehensive human development lies at the heart of our operations. We take the initiative to create a working environment that boosts morale, stimulates innovation, and motivates self-improvement. We move forward when our people break ground."

Established in Vietnam in 1993, Carlsberg has been a leading brewer in the central region with its acclaimed Huda beer for three decades. In 2022, the company shifted gears, relocating its headquarters to Ho Chi Minh City and expanding its portfolio of brands in Vietnam by launching iconic global beers such as 1664 Blanc, Tuborg, and Carlsberg Danish Pilsner. The strategic vision was communicated to all employees, signalling an organisation-wide growth acceleration.

This expansion created major employment opportunities in the beer market. It is not only about growing in size, the company also emphasises employees’ professional development. It has an enhanced training scheme that empowers them to choose their preferred learning methods. A significant increase of 198 per cent in training hours was observed, proving the effectiveness of the drive.
