It’s argued that the greatest challenge facing human resource managers in Viet Nam in the next 5 years will be to attract and retain the quality staff for their organization. I agree with statement because at present Vietnam has to meet the risk of skilled labor shortage although we have abundant labor force. The rate of quality employees is very rarely. So, how can we improve the imbalance of workforce? It’s clear that company must attract and retain the quality staff in their company how can company attract and retain employees? I will tell clearer in my assignment.
I/ Current workforce in Vietnam
According to HG, http://tsc.edu.vn, Vietnam has 86 millions people include 73% population are farmer. This suggests that farmers are still major workforce and play important role in society. In many decades, farmers think plant rice, corn, etc… is the easiest job and no need to learn or get some knowledge about it. Although they apply science and technology for their job, the result is not good like they image because they do not have any knowledge or experience about using technology. In addition, workers have from 5 million to 6 million people (comprise 6% in population), however, the number of worker have knowledge, skill account for 3.3% in total worker in Vietnam. Because workers have not skill so they can not satisfy their job. This is lead to the imbalance of labor in company or organization. The firms do not lack of worker but they lack of skilled worker who play major role in important stages in the production line. Generally, human resource is difficult problem for business.
