Vietnam HR Awards Forum 2019 unleashed the full potential of businesses and the power of human capital in the digital age

Hosted by Talentnet Corporation in association with the Newspaper of Labor and Social Affairs, Vietnam HR Awards Forum 2019 has solidified its position as one of the most prestigious business and HR conventions in the region, bringing forth the largest gathering of CEOs harnessing the strategic insights of tomorrow.

Under the theme of Entering Tomorrow Today, the forum boldly provided businesses with strategic visions, future-fit insights, and real-life strategies to steer onto the right path towards the future. The new playground, new rulebook, and new players’ insights and skillsets needed to stay on top of the game and navigate the changing world were unveiled through the lens of like-minded CEOs.

The morning session took the spotlight in the panel discussion on “Future-Proof the Future: the Decoded New Playground”, which put forward unique insights on how to get businesses ready for the new playground where new trends and business models are sweeping across Vietnam and affecting businesses of every size.

Meanwhile, the stimulating dialogue between Tieu Yen Trinh, CEO of Talentnet, and Dam Bich Thuy, founding president of Fulbright University Vietnam, elucidated the key metrics of the visionary yet actionable CEO’s rulebooks, what CEOs expect the most from their HR partners, as well as what priorities they have in mind to unleash human potential and accelerate the development of new capabilities.

More in-depth themes were also explored in further sessions, delving into the new insights and skillsets that every leader needs to be future-ready and succeed in the age of disruption. The insightful topics revolved around workplace diversity management, as well as the blend of high-tech and high-touch in leadership, tools and tactics to optimise employee experience to enable business efficiency.

Companies such as Mobile World Investment, Fushan Technology, and Unilever Vietnam were part of a panel discussion on how they are reinventing their business models and processes to take advantage of new possibilities and create an agile, thriving workforce to leap forward.

Speaking on behalf of the organisers, Nguyen Trung Chinh, acting editor-in-chief of Newspaper of Labor and Social Affairs, said that, “This edition of Vietnam HR Awards Forum with the theme Entering Tomorrow Today has successfully offered radical, comprehensive, and diverse insights into the business and HR environment continuously in a state of flux, not only in Vietnam, but across the region. Thanks to multi-dimensional perspectives and success stories unearthed through the lens of visionary CEOs, I believe that business leaders, HR strategists, and practitioners would definitely leave invigorated, inspired, ready to tackle any challenges, build a solid foundation for an agile workforce, and get a head-start on tomorrow right from today.”

“We expect the delegates to have a clear and objective view regarding the current status and prospects of the Vietnamese human resources, thereby being able to share experiences and make predictions on business management strategies, recommend recruitment and employment trends for the government and ministries, as well as consult and develop training programmes tailored to the specific needs of enterprises and the labour market – all geared towards improving the skills of Vietnamese human resources,” he emphasised.

Tieu Yen Trinh, CEO of Talentnet, the organiser of Vietnam HR Awards Forum 2019 said that there is no doubt that human capital is one of the most valuable components of any business, and investment in human resources is a necessary step to ensure business success and prosperity. Business leaders and HR professionals need to truly understand, support, and accompany each other in the process of planning and managing human resources, in order to create an engaging and transparent working environment.

“Through the Vietnam HR Awards Forum 2019, we look forward to promoting the relationship between business leaders and HR, enhancing the linkages between business strategy and people development, which adds to long-term corporate value and sustainable success,” she said.
