In Vietnam, given the economic recession as well as shortage in talent, enterprises have been focusing more on staff retention by utilizing employee benefits programs with the aim of increased productivity. Employee benefits insurance is certainly an effective tool to the employee compensation and benefit framework of a company as it combines the benefit of cost optimization and risk management. In fact, apart from basic salary, employees’ top of mind consideration is protection for themselves and their dependants. A human resource strategy that integrates the optimal use of employee benefits solution will support a company in attracting, developing and retaining their qualified staff.

Generali Vietnam Life launched its Group Business in October, 2011 on the basis of a comprehensive product suite and quality customer service offerings tailor-made for the needs of enterprises in Vietnam for their employees.  After a year in operation, the company has been entrusted by renowned multinational and domestic clients to look after their employee benefits needs for more than 5,000 staff members and their dependants.
