Economical sustainability started at Oxalis’ beginning, when the company hired local people as its main workforce. As the company continues to grow, more local citizens are employed in a range of positions: sales executives, operations team members, accountants, tour guides, kitchen and hotel staff, and within the backbone of the organization— the porter team. Also as the company has grown, Oxalis attracted many travelers to the region as Phong Nha became a tourism hotspot. This in turn has created many business opportunities for local people (both directly with those we partner with, and indirectly with those businesses whom our customers give their patronage to while here).
Integrity in business is also an important factor in economical sustainability. Oxalis is committed to transparency, ethics, and working in compliance with local laws regarding taxes and government policies. Oxalis uses an auditing assurance service from PricewaterhouseCoppers Vietnam Ltd to verify its accounting system. Finally, Oxalis is dedicated to social accountability and all Oxalis employees are entitled to all legal benefits, respect of local law in terms of wage, insurance and labor relation. Oxalis pledges to always find the best ways to protect the health, safety, and fundamental rights of their staff.
