In 2001, I became Sales Manager for the South Vietnam market.

My path

Time has really flown by, I have been a member of Cargill for almost 21 years now, which is not too long but not short either. 21 years going by leaving in me so many good memories. There are many great things at Cargill, but what struck me most and remains in my heart is the company’s commitment: “Cargill’s business operations are not only from the solutions we develop for customers but also from community development programs we do wherever we live and work”. This commitment is visualized and realized through Cargill Cares Council, which I am a member of in Vietnam. Cargill have successfully established and built up a large community program to fulfill our corporate citizen responsibilities.

What’s more, with Cargill my colleagues and I have learnt the values that we are really proud of: INTEGRITY, RESPECT FOR OTHERS, COMMITMENT TO SERVE and PASSION FOR SUCCESS. To me, as a Cargill employee, INTEGRITY means to talk and act with highest ethical standards, at the same time to do the right things regardless of the consequences. RESPECT FOR OTHERS is to treat others as I want to be treated. COMMITMENT TO SERVE is equal to doing what is best for others. Last but not least, PASSION FOR SUCCESS means our relentless pursuit of excellence, driven by a health dissatisfaction with the status quo.

Why I chose Cargill

For myself, the more I understand from all the social events and activities that Cargill has been doing for the local community as well as from the company’s charity programs for my own country, the more thankful and prouder I am to be an employee of Cargill. This is truly a company not only doing business well for profits but also being a company of good hearts and giving back spirits, Cargill is a really good corporate role model for other companies. 

My role

I am a Learning & Development specialist cum Employee Relation Assistant. My key responsibilities cover both training and employee activities. At Cargill, we put safety ahead of profit, therefore, safety is a critical training topic. A lot of safety training courses are organized annually. I am in charge of organizing those courses, including defensive riding & driving, first aid, etc.

In addition, I am also responsible for holding internal events which help to build our strong employee engagement.

My path

I had a valuable experience with a local headhunter, then I joined Cargill in 2014 as a temporary staff. At first, my responsibility was in L&D team with training plans and reports. In the next year, I challenged myself with new responsibilities within the Recruitment team. In that role, I was in charge of updating internal recruitment system as well as supporting many job fairs and campus activities. Because of my restless efforts in those 2 years, I became a permanent staff of Cargill as an HR assistant (EHS training coordinator cum ER). Cargill has been helping me gain experience and move up in my career ladder as an HR professional.

My advice

Choose a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life. Be patient as much as possible to overcome your challenges. Try your best and the rest will come.

I chose Cargill as my best place to work where I find myself as a member in a large family with lots of precious sharing and mutual support. Cargill has its own unique culture.

I was impressed by Cargill's Greenbook which set the right guidance for business etiquette for each member in our organization. Besides business activities, we also enrich our local community through Cares Fund-raising events annually and school building program. If you want some reasons to be proud of your work, Cargill will give a lot.
