INSEE Vietnam offers the Enterprise Vocational Training (EVE) program with the goal of developing and improving labor capacity and job opportunities in local areas around our plant. The company creates conditions for young local high school graduates to develop their skills through a training program in partnership with a local Vocational College and practice at INSEE.
