Country Director, Vietnam
Senior Associate, International Business Advisory
Vietnam boasts one of the most vibrant labor markets, not only in Southeast Asia but globally. With a burgeoning young and increasingly educated workforce, the country stands out as an attractive destination for foreign direct investment.
Despite the abundance of labor, it is still important to note that the labor market in Vietnam clearly leans towards the interests of employees. Employers must navigate various factors, including shorter probation periods, unwritten employee benefits, and intense competition for skilled talent. Additionally, companies with traditional structures face unique challenges in meeting the expectations of Generation Z. The increasing influx of foreign experts seeking employment in Vietnam further adds layers of complexity for international firms.
Considering the seasonal peak in hiring after the Vietnamese Lunar New Year, with elevated turnover in February and March, companies can effectively prepare for this season by gaining a comprehensive understanding of Vietnam's recruitment landscape.
