TANDE Company, a producer of sportswear products in Thai Binh Province, northern Vietnam has fastened Tet gift sets on the motorbikes of thousands of its workers.
On social networks, many people have hailed the company for its thoughtfulness for its workers.
Special way to give Tet gifts
TANDE Company, located at Nguyen Duc Canh Industrial Park in Thai Binh City of the namesake province, has some 18,300 employees working in 10 factories.
Over the past few years, the company has prepared Tet gift sets, including commodities, and tied them to workers’ motorbikes.
Trinh Thanh Dinh, chairman of the company’s labor union, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that all 10 factories of the company have given Tet gifts to workers in this way over the past five years.
“Since last year, gift sets have been prepared with more care," Dinh said.
“We spent VND33 billion [US$1.4 million] buying Tet gifts worth nearly VND1.2 million [$51.1] each for 18,300 laborers."

Touching workers’ hearts
Dinh added that laborers, besides bonuses, received essential goods.
In particular, each gift set includes 10 kilograms of rice, a box of beer cans, glutinous rice, fish sauce, and seasoning powder.
Due to the high number of workers, they had drawn up a Tet gift-giving plan since September last year.
"We gave rice and beer to workers on Saturday and gift sets including 10 products each to them today," Dinh added.
“The company will give them lucky money on January 18 so that they can give it back to their grandparents and parents.”

Bui Nhu Khue, a worker of the company, told Tuoi Tre that she was touched as she received Tet gifts, including practical ones, two times before the Tet holiday, which is two weeks away.
“Despite not being the first time to receive gifts, I feel eager. We are happy and moved,” Khue shared.
