  1. Rationale of the study

Culture of a corporation is not only the surface manifestation like  dressing,  office’s  decoration,  language  but also the moral  standard,  the  leadership style, the behavior within company, etc. These elements create the prestige and brand name for all types of companies in general and for limited  companies in particular.

Regarding corporate culture, people often think to “3P” philosophy : people-product-profit.  According to the importance of three elements, each enterprise might have different ways of behavior in business. Nghe An water supply limited company (NAWASCO) is one of the largest limited companies in Viet Nam.With this company, besides concentrating on  profit,  the  quality  and  the  diversity  of  services,  human  resource  is  the  first concern.  NAWASCO  always  tries  to  care  about  the  material  and  spiritual  life  of employees;  respect  and  encourage  the  initiation  and  creation  of  staffs. During  the  process  of  international  business integration,  corporate  culture  will  be  the  key  factor  which  helps  NAWASCO overcome the challenges and is the key for sustainable development of the company.
