Although the current challenges, they are viewed as temporary hurdles. Ms. Tieu Yen Trinh – CEO, Talentnet commented: “We have talked a lot about high tech but do not forget that the experience has depth and emotion (high touch). With the support of technology, authentic experiences and personalization can create high value for businesses. We have a young and curious workforce that is willing to explore and innovate beyond the existing norms. This is a significant advantage for development amidst economic, social, and technological fluctuations, if businesses know how to leverage it. Businesses themselves also need to further enhance the vision of “shared economics,” meaning sharing values, goals, and achievements with employees to create synergy and success.
