I started my overseas career at Colombo, Sri Lanka in 1995 after 5 years job career in Japan. After that, I have spent most of my time in overseas i.e. Singapore and Taiwan.
Vietnam is my fourth country and now I feel excitement and anticipation.
I’ll do make my best exertions and hope this new challenge can bring new waves.
Stop worrying, living and working happy.
“why so serious, don’t worry, be happy”, this idiom we often hear nowadays, but how to make it, not so easy.
Nearly 18 years working for OVC, not too long, not short to see that OVC has been changed so much from the beginning. Take a look to the turnovers & staffs number of OVC this year, we can see these figure much higher than last year. It means that our company is growing up. This make us happy and believe that our company is on correct way.
But beside glad thing like that we could see so many Vietnamese staffs quitted OVC year by year.
What make them “run” like this is my deeply concern, so I try to find the answer by myself.
I talked with many OVC-former staffs ( I’m still keeping good relation with them by friendship) and received the same answers from them
Generally, the main reason why they decided to stop working for OVC because they didn’t find the stableness, real happy life if had continued doing hard work, getting high pressure everyday, but no conversation, no sentiment between boss and staff, no moral encouragement like reward, company trip..etc. They even doubted that who could know their contribution for company? their role was like the temporary. For Vietnamese culture, people not only work but also enjoy working, but this matter they could not see in OVC.
Their explanation may be correct in the past; however, since Mr. Yamanaka became OVC president, all has been changed. ”improve communication”, ”improve team work”, ”smile more”, “think positive”…many many actions and systems has been done. So I strongly believe that we will feel happy and meaningful working for OVC.
We should try for OVC day by day stronger, it will make us get more income, more enjoy, more experience , more mature then happier.
So stop worrying and live happy.
Thank You & best regards.

“It is so lucky for me to become one of the first members who follow and experience from such an initial development of Obayashi Corporation in Vietnam at the first years. With seventeen years working together with many Japanese experts, I satisfied that I can learn a lot from technical point of view, conduct, opinion as well as sense of responsibility at work. I also really hope to keep contributing to the objective of Obayashi Vietnam Corporation to become one of the best foreign construction companies in Vietnam”.
When I was employed to work for Obayashi Corporation seventeen years ago (1996), actually, I didn’t know Japanese and had very few knowledge about Japanese people and culture.
In 2008, after twelve years of working here, with my great efforts, I had the opportunity to be trained in Japan for one year at Obayashi Tokyo Head Office. I have studied Japanese, and the more I study, the more I like and admire Japan as well as its culture, people in general and Obayashi Vietnam Corporation in particular.
As far as I know, OBAYASHI (大林) means “Huge Forest”. Incidentally, my name is Linh, in Japanese it is spelled as “Rin” (リン), and can also be spelled as “Hayashi”(林), which means “Forest”. I would like to be a Small Forest among the Huge Forest and contribute to the development of the company.
