Enterprise Innovation: Vietnamese firms will face keen competition for top talent in 2015


Robert Walters Vietnam recently launched its annual Global Salary Survey and shared its key findings on hiring and salary trends for the Vietnamese market.

According to the survey, companies in Vietnam will face keen competition for top talent in 2015, due to the limited local talent pool. Enterprise Innovation noted that although a number of job opportunities were available across different sectors, the scarcity of specialist skills in the market continued to pose recruitment challenges for employers.

Jon Whitehead, Country Manager of Robert Walters Vietnam

"The largest challenges faced by companies as they compete for top Vietnamese talent is the shortage of candidates and lack of niche skill sets". In order to attract top-tier professionals, hiring managers have to consider holistic employment packages which include clear internal career development plans and attractive benefits. Another viable option to widening the candidate pool is to attract overseas Vietnamese back home. Their international exposure, diverse skill sets and bilingual abilities can create a dynamic workforce for Vietnam."

"Apart from technical abilities, finance professionals who understand the business-partnering potential of their role will be highly sought-after."

The study also shows a rising demand for cloud computing, mobility engineering, big data, business intelligence and information security IT specialists.
