“XAY TET 2023” – COTECCONS “BUILD” TET FOR 12,000 CONSTRUCTION WORKERS

Construction workers are a priority in the sustainability strategy.

According to data from the Ministry of Labor, War Invalids, and Social Affairs, the country has about 7 million construction workers, accounting for 13.5% of the workforce aged 15 and over. Especially, in the construction industry, construction workers are the important people contributing to the creation of iconic projects and works.

With the direction of sustainable development, besides taking care of people in difficult circumstances and responding to climate change and community issues, Coteccons realizes that its own employees, construction workers, are also a sector that has received little attention in society.

Therefore, Coteccons has decided to launch the “Xay Tet—Construct Tet” program in order to bring a warmer and better Tet to 12,000 construction workers who are working for subcontractors and suppliers at Coteccons’s construction sites. The program will visit nearly 60 construction sites across the country starting on January 4, 2023.

Coteccons understands that each construction worker has made great efforts to build solid, safe works and always ensure the progress. That is the reason that accelerates Coteccons to give them and their family gifts, to join hands to build a fuller Tet for all!

Besides gift sets for 12,000 workers, the program also organizes meaningful activities such as cutting hair at the construction site, taking souvenir photos, giving free rides back to their hometowns, etc. All these activities are intended to bring short relaxation time to workers during the busy days of running progress on the construction site when the Tet holiday is coming.

This is not only of material value but also a meaningful spiritual gift for construction workers. In addition, Coteccons also conveys a message calling on society to recognize the contributions of this group of people as well as improve their working conditions.

With the direction of “people-centric” company development, Coteccons always strives to create the best working conditions for employees, including construction workers from sub-contractors and suppliers nationwide. From improving a safe, humane, and respectful working environment to ensuring a stable job with a payment policy and other benefits during the working process, which the company identifies as part of the company’s sustainable development strategy.

Pham Quan Luc, Coteccons Deputy General Director, passionately shared: “For Coteccons, in its 18-year history, every success in creating an iconic project is largely thanks to the dedication of the construction workers who are working here. They are not only our ‘partners’ but also the core of creating a respectful and humane corporate culture that helps Coteccons stay strong on the journey to create a better future. Although the market is in difficulty as well as the company, Coteccons still makes efforts to deploy this program in the hope that more companies, partners, and other organizations will join hands, pay more attention, and have more activities for construction workers. Coteccons will always be committed to building a safe, sustainable, and better working environment.”

In the meantime, the company is committed to prioritizing payment so that workers can work with peace of mind and welcome a prosperous New Year after two years of the impact of the pandemic.

Accompanying Coteccons are the Ministry of Labor, War Invalids, and Social Affairs and Dan Tri Newspaper, which have contributed to the success of the Xay Tet 2023 Program. Sharing the meaning of this activity, Mr. Vu Trong Binh, Director of the Employment Department (Ministry of Labour, War Invalids, and Social Affairs), stated at the “Xay Tet” event that took place in Vinhomes Grand Park about the government’s policy that does not leave anyone behind. To implement that policy, the Prime Minister sent a public message to request all levels, branches, and localities in all forms – through the state budget system, to mobilize social and community resources and especially the role of enterprises – to take care of Tet for employees.

Therefore, Mr. Binh highly appreciated the efforts of Coteccons and Dan Tri Electronic Newspaper in implementing the project “Building Tet.” This not only shows corporate social responsibility but also goes hand in hand with the policy of the state.

“In a difficult context, the Xay Tet project demonstrates Coteccons bravery when it not only ensures the lives of workers but also gives them a warm Tet,” Mr. Binh shared.

At Coteccons, the principle of sustainable business is built to harmonize three factors: shareholders, employees, and social responsibility. Employees here include not just approximately 2,000 engineers, the enterprise’s organic architects, but also a force of almost 20,000 construction workers from subcontractors and suppliers operating on Coteccons’ building sites.

The cooperation of businesses that uphold the organization’s responsibility to the community through meaningful projects like “Xay Tet 2023” is not only an effective source of support encouraged by agencies but also a way for the entire society to work together to build a more developed and sustainable community.

The project “Xay Tet 2023” is one of the proofs that Coteccons strives to realize its commitment to make an impact and build a better and more sustainable world every day.

In a male-dominated field like the construction industry, what role do women play? At Coteccons Group, we create an equal environment for everyone to develop together without “labeling” gender.   At Coteccons Group, women can be not only the supporting team but also the core personnel who step out to make trillion-dollar deals or devise strategies on human resources, purchasing, etc. On International Women’s Day, let us meet typical female figures at Coteccons Group and hear them share their stories about working in a ‘man’s kingdom’.    Are there any stereotypes/prejudice about women in the construction industry that are difficult to eliminate?   Ms. Nguyen Tran Thuc Anh – Head of the Board of Investment: Stereotypes are nothing more than a comparison of “gender power”. In a field like construction, if there is something that needs to change, I think it would be “equality in mindset“. Stop talking about gender differences and talk about work efficiency. That is equality!   Ms. Tran Thi Lieu Vinh – Director of Administration & Sustainable Development: “Can’t do heavy work”, “not strong enough in communication”, “have to take care of family”… are the labels that society has been attaching to women when it comes to the construction industry. This perspective makes the female gender a minus in the industry. People also think that women in the construction industry are less ‘feminine’ due to the nature of the job, which involves working a lot with men, heavy work, dusty construction site environments, and always having to
