Thai-backed retailer MM Mega Market Vietnam has carved out a spot in the list of 115 companies in Vietnam to receive the Best Companies to Work for in Asia award by HR Asia, the leading human resources magazine in Asia.
The Best Companies to work for in Asia award was selected based on a rigorous survey and evaluation process, including independent researches from the organiser, staff surveys, management interviews, and a synthetic assessment report.
In particular, the employee survey is based on three main criteria: CORE (Culture and Ethics, Leadership and Organisation, Active Initiatives); SELF (Emotional engagement, Intention and Motivation, Behaviour, and Advocacy); GROUP (Collective consciousness, Workplace sentiment, Team dynamic).
In all three surveyed categories, the company (MM) received very positive reviews and high scores compared with the benchmark. Most of the employees participating in the survey recognised MM as having a professional environment where everyone is treated with fairness, trust, and respect. The employees are encouraged to contribute initiatives, and well trained to develop career opportunities with the company. Besides, the in-depth survey provides companies with a unique 360-degree insight of their employees’ morale, their needs and expectations, as well as their engagement levels. From there, enterprises would make flexible and appropriate policies from time to time.
“We’re incredibly proud to receive this recognition. I would like to express my deep appreciation to our 4,000 talented employees for their daily dedication, passion, professionalism, and their true commitment in making the award happen,” said Bruno Jousselin, managing director of MM Mega Market. “Every day, our team delivers excellent services to offer the best customer experience. At MM, Happy Workplace is one of our core values. We strive to build a working environment that empowers, encourages, and develops personal talents to grow with us. This award is vivid proof of our tireless efforts and improvements.”

In addition to taking good care of employees’ health, MM also strives to take care of their wellness by organising webinar-based coaching from prestigious doctors, experts to equip employees with the knowledge of staying healthy.
