Hanoi, Vietnam–While tech layoffs are sweeping the globe, FPT Software, the leading IT business in Southeast Asia, welcomed thousands of employees’ parents to their offices to show sincere gratitude and a commitment to providing the best working conditions for their staff.
Since 2006, November 19 has been marked as Parent’s Day for FPT Software to show gratitude to their employees’ parents. It’s a day before Vietnamese Teacher’s Day with the thought that parents should be honored first, referring to national culture.
This year, with the theme “Take Your Parents To Work”, the event is hosted in four major cities, greeting thousands of parents at the doors. FPT Software is the very first tech firm in Vietnam to take this initiative which shares the concept with Google’s or LinkedIn’s.
Thousands of employees’ parents are welcomed at FPT Software’s offices across the country
Employees’ parents are guided through their children’s workplaces. From there, they got the full experience of their kids’ workday, from the corporate meetings to the company lunch space. This allowed them to see first-hand what their children’s work days look like, which added some context for the conversations that frequently occur during family gatherings.
Parent’s Day is among the most exciting moments of the year for not only FPT Software employees but their parents. Though unable to return home, thousands of Vietnamese employees working in global branches invited their parents to the event.
On a crisp morning, all FPT Software workspaces were filled with countless proud moms and dads who dressed in laughter, joy, and happiness. Tears have been shed, and words have been listened to carefully.
Speaking at the event, Ms Chu Thi Thanh Ha, Chairwoman of FPT Software emphasizes “FPT Software’s successes can not be guaranteed without the dedication of every single employee and the unwavering support of their parents.” and encourages her employees to spend more time with their family, “for parents, there is no better vitamin than an everyday text or phone call from their kids.”
FPT Software commits to providing employees with the most favorable working environment possible. The business is constructing campus systems in accordance with the standards of top-notch IT companies like Google or Facebook. Plus, FPT Group supports the employees and their families with housing and car loan interest, healthcare, and education.
