According to Tina Nguyen, Generali Vietnam CEO, the opening of Generali Plaza is an important milestone reaffirming Generali’s long-term commitment in Vietnam, one of the group’s key markets in Asia.

“The word 'plaza' is written and pronounced the same in Vietnamese, English, and Italian, meaning an open public area, a group of buildings, and community space. In Italy, a plaza is the beating heart of every Italian town, the centre of every Italian’s daily life,” said Tina Nguyen.

“It is, therefore, our hope that Generali Plaza will be more than just a place to work, where every Generali Vietnam staff and agent can live and contribute their fullest potential, with great passion and enthusiasm, following Generali’s distinctive SOHI mantra for Lifetime Partners, including Simplification, Ownership, Human Touch, and Innovation. I believe this will help us nurture a happy workforce that can further spread happiness to all of Generali Vietnam’s customers and the community,” she noted.

Generali Plaza will be a centralised office for all Generali’s staff in Ho Chi Minh City, which enhances engagement and collaboration of people across all functions.

The main working area features an open plan, with modern equipment and ample shared amenities. Brainstorming and collaboration spaces are scattered around and equipped with interactive screens, smart Wi-Fi, and online meeting technologies.

AI-powered facial recognition, emotion detection, and body temperature scanning technologies are the technological highlights of Generali Plaza. This will help improve workplace safety, security, and operational effectiveness. Ample training spaces (GenAcademy) and the spacious SOHI town hall featuring high-tech facilities and aesthetic canopy ceiling will allow Generali to organise all types of training, engagement activities, and events for staff, agents, customers, and partners.

Of note, Generali Plaza reaffirms Generali’s commitment to pursuing strategic human resources priorities such as diversity and inclusion, with the provision of separate ramps and toilets for people with disabilities, nursing room for female staff returning from maternity leave, and more.
