Specifically, the core values that Tan Hiep Phat leaders have been pursued since the company's foundation in 1994 are Customer satisfaction; World-class quality; Corporate social responsibility; Nothing is impossible; Master of the job; Today is better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow; and Being honest.
“A business culture can be measured through how the company realises their core values. We are proud that our staff and business executives could practice the core values and show indomitable discipline throughout these trials."
"Our employees are encouraged to come forward with feasible proposals which will be transmitted to leaders. This helps bolster interaction and attachment between workers and the company, making them feel proud to be a member of the Tan Hiep Phat family,” said Bich.
Besides communicating about business culture, every six months the company reviews outcomes of eachendeavour made by the employees. Thus, employees are encouraged to take positive action and contribute to the growth of Tan Hiep Phat.
