Employees of SMEs also give their employers the thumbs up


– 23 December 2020 – SMEs in Vietnam were celebrated today in a
glittering ceremony highlighting their achievements in a challenging year.


Held in Ho Chi Minh City, the SME100 Fast Moving Companies Awards
ceremony debuted in its first year in Vietnam — having been established as the
premier regional awards for SMEs in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.

This year, more than 612 companies were nominated, with 225 companies
selected in the shortlist and 39 companies selected as winners. The SME100
Awards utilises a basket of quantitative and qualitative criteria with a focus
on growth (turnover, profit and market share) and resilience (best practices,
sustainability and vision) to identify and recognise the top performing SMEs in
the region.


“When the SME100 was first organized 11 years ago, the market and the
economy were very different than today. As the pace of change accelerates, so
does the pace of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. Running a
business today is far more difficult than eleven years ago,” said William Ng,
group publisher and editor-in-chief of SME Magazine.

“As some of Vietnam’s most successful businesses; you will be carrying
the flag of Vietnam internationally. With the SME100, a truly regional award,
you will be carrying this flag with pride and with a sense of greater
responsibility, especially since you will be the first in Vietnam to win this
award,” Ng added.


SMEs Given Vote of Confidence by Their Employees

In conjunction with the SME100 Fast Moving Companies Awards, a new survey
conducted by SME Magazine also revealed that employees of small and medium
enterprises (SMEs) in Vietnam believe in their employers, despite the
challenges of COVID-19, a cooling global economy, and increasing competition.


The SME100 Experience Survey, conducted in partnership with Willis
Towers Watson for the SME100 Awards was done to help SMEs better understand
their employees’ perspectives, enabling data-driven insights into the
importance of developing a great employee experience.


By studying responses from organisations in Vietnam, it was found that
overall, Vietnamese SMEs scored an average of 92 percent in employee
experience. This is 8 percent higher than other countries in the region.
Crucially, 4 out of 5 respondents are also willing to recommend their company
as a good place to work.


“A good employee experience is not, and should not be the sole preserve
of large multinationals. This survey shows that SMEs can build competence in
this area to better attract and retain talent. In our experience, the employee
experience contributes significantly to better company performance over time
and is the consistent differentiator that separates the best from the rest,”
said Ng.


The experience of the SME100 Winners:

“We are so proud to be recognized as one of the Outstanding
Vietnamese Small and Medium Enterprises by SME & Entrepreneurship Magazine.
This moment is really meaningful, not only for myself but also for the whole of
Black Cat’s members who are talented and have shared many joys and sorrows
together in the journey leading Black Cat’s ship going through 9 years in a
very competitive market. On this day, all of our efforts have been recognized
and honored at this Prestigious Regional Award.” – Mr. Ho Minh Kha –
Chairman of Black Cat Insulation Technical JSC

creations have been widely accepted and created a foundation for growth and
development in the Vietnamese F&B market. However, in this modern era with
more digitalization, things are changing faster than ever, and businesses need
to adapt and be agile. I created ELG to be the next steppingstone for the
industry, we want to be the market leaders in F&B innovation and set a
higher standard. This award reflects that ELG is heading in the right direction
and will inspire us to continue to always strive better.” – Mr. Lai Trinh
