83% of organizations faced challenges in recruiting professional level, 18% at the executive levels and 60% at the management levels.

The primary factor contributing to recruitment challenges is the evolving skill requirements set forth by organizations. 74% of companies said they were unable to find people with the right skills at the right price. While 64% of organizations find it difficult to hire due to the lack of qualified employees’ availability.

The loss in purchasing power in some industries, including Logistics, Technology, and Manufacturing, as a result of global macroeconomic swings, has increased the hiring need for sales people who can assist these companies in finding new clients – According to Talentnet’s Executive Search & Selection department.

66% of organizations are currently implementing sign-on bonuses as a part of their benefit package to attract talent.

Accordingly, executives receive substantial sign-on bonuses, with an average of up to VND 500 million, though it could go up to VND 900 million. The median amount of sign-on bonus managers can get is around VND 200 million while specialists can get VND 80 million.
