For the first time, Nestlé Vietnam was honoured as No.1 in the Top 100 Vietnam Best Places to Work 2021. The results are based on a survey conducted by Anphabe with over 65,000 working professionals nationwide.

We believe that sustainable development is not enough to have positive impacts on regenerating the ecosystem as well as conserving resources for the future."

“This is the new approach that Nestlé has incorporated into the company's sustainable development programmes and initiatives since 2020. Nestlé has determined to build a workpalce for employees and leaders to maxmise their talent, connecting with our common goal known as The Nest of Choice – the second home for employees,” he said.

The COVID-19 pandemic, especially the fourth wave, has affected businesses significantly. Nestlé Vietnam has adjusted corporate governance and human resource management to reach significant achievements in nurturing its people and working culture.
