Feminism: More than a trend

2017 marked a boom with many programs, events and actions related to “Feminism.” According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “Feminism” is the most searched word in the world in 2017 and is the Word of the Year, triggered by gender equality movements throughout the yearSo, what is Feminism, and what are its influences on equality? 

 

In general, Feminism is a collection of movements and campaigns aimed at identifying, building and defending women’s rights in politics, economics, culture and society. Feminism also includes the establishment and maintenance of equal opportunity for women in education and employment. It can be said that feminism is the same as human rights when the deeper philosophy is the direction to a world of equality for all sex.  

 

The Women’s March in the United States officially kicked off the resurgence of Feminism in January 2017, where more than 4 million people banded together to protect women’s rights from bold statements of sexual assault of incumbent President Donald Trump. 

By October, the world was again warming up with the #MeToo campaign, with nearly 1 million participants, to expose sexual assaults on women. TIME magazine honored “The Silence Breakers” as the character of the year. From politics and business to education and entertainment, all were impacted by the “seismic” Feminism, which made everyone think seriously about gender inequality. According to social experts, 2018 will continue to explode with the spirit of feminism. 

 

Is inequality eliminated? 

With the movements and events calling and promoting equal rights for women, gender inequality has seen positive changes. However, the problem is still so serious that the World Economic Forum has estimated that it will take almost 200 years for humanity to actually reach a state of total equality. 

In employment opportunities alone, women are not as well assessed as men. Reports show that the proportion of women working in technical fields in Vietnam is always below 30%. 

 

The report of the Vietnam Migratory Action Network for Migrant Workers has shown that women make up only 26.1% of leadership positions but up to 52.1% of the simple working and 66.6% of family labor. Thus, the barrier for women advancement in the career still exists.  

 

Mr. Nguyen Hung Cuong, Managing Director of NashTech Vietnam, said: “Gender inequality causes not only disadvantages for women, but also serious damage to the operation of enterprises. With the experience of NashTech, we recognize that working with a balanced mix of men and women, from management to staff, is the perfect way to utilize and reach the potential of each individual.” 

 

 

Indeed, a report by the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program found that women have better technology skills than men. Specifically, in tests of ability in technology-intensive markets, women scored an average of 48 points, while the score from men was 45. 

 

Mr/Ms. [ABC], [Title related to HR], NashTech Vietnam, continues: “NashTech’s human resources strategy is focused on people, so we do not have gender discrimination in recruiting, training, and development. Each employee is equally empowered, and given equal consideration.” 

 

Throughout 20 years of operations in Vietnam, providing software services and business process outsourcing to companies around the globe, NashTech has been striving to maintain a male-female balance of more than 2,000 engineers and experts. Whether male or female, NashTech employees are equally valued. NashTech understands that only by eliminating barriers of stereotyping and gender bias, every individual has the optimum environment for development and dedication.

The main reason is that employees are constantly on vacation

Everyone seems to have their own reasons for leaving. However, besides financial factors, the reality is that there are profound causes beneath the ultimate decision to leave a company.  

Lack of commitment to human development orientation 

Many managers mistakenly believe that an attractive offer of salary will be able to dominate the employee’s attachment to the organization. However this only contributes to their decision to leave. From the perspective of an employee, especially young people, they wonder about their ability to develop their inner selves, establish a position and find a long-term future direction. 

 

Indeed, according to Travis Bradberry, co-founder of TalentSmart, employees are more likely to make a decision to quit when managers do not have a clear human development (employee) strategy. He said that when leaders cannot commit to a future orientation for their employees, employees will feel disoriented and skeptical of what they can contribute to the team. Naturally, they will become depressed and not want to continue to collaborate with the corporation. 

 

Environment “closed” 

Imagine how you would feel if you were completely sealed in a room, and no matter how loud you screamed, the outside could not hear you. A “closed” working environment is easily understood as a closed room, where you only work with the directions available, and your feedback, etc. is ignored. 

 

Angela Ahrendts, senior Vice President of Apple, adds “the pressure from stereotyping will create a sense of humor in the minds of employees, and form a ‘subterranean wave’ in their psyche. In the long run, they will be able to react in different ways such as exploding in a negative or light manner. Either way, the damage is still on the business side. 

 

Moreover, when employees are bound to unnecessary stereotypes, their creativity and innovation will be killed. Instead of encouraging self-change to move forward, employees are required to follow old models, which will cause ‘stifling’ and the desire to leave the company.” 

 

“I” of the leader 

Promoting yourself to a self-proclaimed manager will cause the collective loss of a company. Employees will no longer be linked, and each will work individually. Finally, when the collective is no longer maintained, or in other words, the business is split from the inside, employees will leave to seek new ideals. This has been demonstrated through a study of LinkedIn employee behavior by the end of 2017.  

 

 

Mr [ABC], [Title related to HR or General Management] of NashTech, the leading technology group in Vietnam, agrees with this statement: “At NashTech, we always operate under the motto “Unite to develop together” because we understand that individuality is the leading factor that causes divisions and affects the development of the whole. So NashTech’s board of directors always collaborates with our employees in all matters, and act as mentors to our associates. “ 

 

Responsibility of the business to the community 

The main staff is part of the community where the business is located. Therefore, when a company is not interested in the development of the community, employees will feel disassociated with the company. They will indirectly feel neglected by the business owners and will question the management’s commitment of responsibility for them. The Millennial Impact report  Anh Phúc thêm link nguồn nhé shows Millennial employees (born 1981-1996) desired to be more engaged and dedicated to the company focus on developing local communities. 

 

 

Focus on staff development, and staff will stay with the company throughout their career. With that in mind, NashTech, a technology corporation with more than 20 years of IT experience in Vietnam, is committed to creating an “open” and professional working environment for employees.
