Ho Chi Minh City, September 2018 – Prudential Vietnam Assurance Private Ltd. (Prudential) has been recognised as one of the Best Companies to Work for In Asia in 2018 by HR Asia, an authoritative publication for HR professionals in the region. The award is a testament to Prudential’s achievements for cultivating a people-centric corporate culture, recruiting and developing talents, as well as implementing an effective employee reward mechanism within the organisation. 

The evaluation followed a strict and transparent assessment protocol conducted by HR Asia, as well as various industry professionals and corporate HR practitioners. The assessment focused on corporate HR policy, talent acquisition strategy and effective workplace initiatives. In addition, HR Asia conducted interviews with CEOs and surveys with employees to hand-pick the winners of 27 best workplaces honours and the champions of the prestigious regional Best Companies in Asia awards. 

Clive Baker, CEO of Prudential Vietnam said: “Prudential has been prioritising talent development as one of our core business strategies over the past 20 years since the establishment of our operations in the country. As a leading life insurer, Prudential’s success is built on acquiring and developing talents through nurturing a diversified and inclusive working environment and implementing an effective employee rewards mechanism.” 

Prudential is committed to creating a fair and inclusive working environment for all employees where individuals are empowered, differences celebrated, and meritocracy fostered. People is the key asset to help drive Prudential’s business strategies. The organisation’s Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) strategy emphasizes on the collaboration of experiences and skills which  leads to better business decisions and outcomes for shareholders, customers and employees. The three pillars under Prudential’s D&I strategy are: bridging generations, harnessing workplace differences and fostering authenticity and openness. Under these pillars, employee initiatives and activities including on-boarding programme for new hires, flexible working hour and working arrangement policies, “bring your kids to work”, as well as seminars and talks about mindset transformation have been introduced to enhance diversity, respect, trust and collaboration in the workplace. 

One of the highlights of Prudential’s talent acquisition and development programme is The Strivers, a rotation programme that provides college students and fresh graduates the opportunities to realise their full potential through exposing themselves to real career challenges. With the mentorship given by senior leaders within a period of two to three years, The Strivers offers young practitioners career advancements and paves way for a long-term career path especially in the technology, finance and actuarial, as well as sales management fields.

Prudential has also set up an employee incentive mechanism around five elements, including salary and bonus, healthcare, life quality, recognition, and career development. Such policies are applicable to various employee groups, reflecting Prudential’s care for the health and well-being of its employees and its people strategy centered on creating a dynamic working environment and fostering work-life balance. 

Prior to receiving HR Asia’s award this year, Prudential has been named “The Best Company to work for in Vietnam” by Anphabe and Nielsen for five consecutive years from 2013 to 2018.
