Vietnam, 01/10/2021. Today, ManpowerGroup Vietnam partnered with the American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (AmCham) to organize the webinar “Building a Resilient Organization with a Coaching Culture”. The event is aimed to share the importance of coaching culture in an organization and how it can support them in building resilience to be successful in the pandemic. Experienced speakers, who are leading experts in human resources management, coaching and psychological consulting, and Ms. Linh Thai, CEO/ Founder, TVL Group discussed the stories of coaching implementation and building resilience for employees in their organizations. The webinar saw the participation of over 100 business leaders and HR practitioners working in various sectors. According to the “Talent Shortage Survey 2020” by ManpowerGroup, 93% of people have seen their working life transform because of Covid-19. Gallup’s “State of the Global Workplace 2021”, carried out in 116 countries and areas, also reveals that Southeast Asia has the highest regional percentage of people who lost pay due to the coronavirus situation, second-highest regional percentage of people who worked fewer hours, and second-highest regional percentage of people who lost a job or business. In terms of emotion, 33% of Vietnamese regularly experienced stress, and the country was ranked 6th among 9 countries in the region. “Resilience is the ability to recover from adversity, adapt and thrive”, shared Mr. Bao Nguyen, Leadership & Team Coach, ManpowerGroup Vietnam. The resilience skills of a person are influenced by two groups of factors, namely uncontrollable and controllable ones. The expert made it clear that coaching is a useful skill for individuals to learn to manage their feelings, thoughts, and actions. It is also among the top 10 important soft skills in search by global employers according to ManpowerGroup. (*) Dr. Tran Huu Duc (PhD), Psychotherapist said: “Because of the local culture, Vietnamese people enjoy socializing and being in a large community. This is also one of the catalysts to restore their energy and emotional intelligence. The recent restrictions and social distancing rules due to the pandemic, however, have made many confused, and thus have no idea of how to balance their emotions.” According to a survey shared by Dr. Tran Huu Duc, by September 2021, about 80% Vietnamese get stressed out frequently as compared to the ratio of pre-Covid-19 at only 15%. Discussing the ‘How’ to implement coaching effectively, Ms. Ellie Huong Bui, HRBP Director, Hitachi Vantara Vietnam & Japan shared “The leaders play an increasingly important role in the coaching journey, particularly during the pandemic. They need to fuel their employees with inspiration and peaceful energy, make them feel secure and as a result, be open to learning and change.” In addition, the panelists shared specific tactics that HR practitioners can apply in building a strong coaching culture as well as a resilient organization during and after the pandemic.

Vietnam, 27/09/2021. ManpowerGroup and MxD USA recently released the research “The Future Factory: Mapping The Skills That Will Power Manufacturing”. The workforce analysis describes the impacts of the digital transformation on the manufacturing sector and highlights the roles of innovation culture and other leadership skills to the business transformation’s success. Digital transformation with breakthroughs in advanced technology is taking place in every sector globally, including the manufacturing. As the vanguard of the digital transformation, the industry’s transition to full digitization is already well underway and accelerating daily. In tandem with that process, new roles appear with advanced digital skills demanded while others become obsolete. According to the research, nearly 50% of all roles in manufacturing will need to change within the next three-to-five years as the industry transitions to become fully digital. Since the early days of its history, Manufacturing has undergone and evolved through four technical generations – Generations Zero to Three. Each generation is aligned to different eras of manufacturing tools, technologies and work. Today we are on the cusp of the third generation, characterized by the transformational power of radical improvements in connected systems and machine learning, and we expect to be fully immersed in Gen Three by 2020. The groundbreaking workforce analysis identifies 165 new and evolving roles across 7 areas of technical expertise in manufacturing, including: Digital Manufacturing, Digital Thread, Digital Enterprise, Digital Product, Digital Design, Supply Network, and Omni. The impact of transformation differs for each domain with the greatest shift occurring in the Digital Manufacturing – 28% of the 165 new or evolved roles are in this domain. Within the seven domains above, specific roles can be mapped by the impact they make on the organization and the way they connect to each other. “In order to develop the talent they need to remain competitive, manufacturing companies need new approaches for training, that is, to up-skill and re-skill people at speed and at scale. It is now or never”, said Le Thi Kim, Head of Staffing and Outsourcing Services, North, ManpowerGroup Vietnam. From the researchers’ findings, the most effective skills development and retention are achieved through certification programs of six months or less or on-the-job training. The manufacturing’s technological transformation also proposes a need for leadership roles to change. Managers and leaders should follow the 80/20 rules to stay relevant and competitive. While foundational leadership skills keep playing an integral part, effective leaders must also nurture the additional 20 percent – an innovation culture & risk management, learnability, adaptability, and optimizing opportunities. The key to catching the shift of digital transformation and skills revolution in manufacturing is a connected workforce strategy at the soonest. Besides investing in internal talent via development program, helping people transit to new roles when necessary, employers should cultivate and connect communities of talent beyond the organization, especially going to the labor market or workforce solutions providers to attract the talent that can’t be built in-house.Particularly, based on ManpowerGroup’s workforce analysis of 165 new and evolving roles across seven “domains” of technical expertise, manufacturing organizations can identify future talent needs in short, medium and long term. About the researchThe groundbreaking workforce analysis was jointly developed by ManpowerGroup and MxD (formerly the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute) with the purpose to find practical solutions to the skills shortage and ensure up to 2 million new manufacturing jobs in the U.S. do not go unfilled. ManpowerGroup and MxD convened more than 30 academic, government and industry partners including Siemens, Microsoft, Caterpillar and General Electric to create an industry-recognized taxonomy that defines digital manufacturing roles of the future, serving as a practical toolkit for manufacturing organizations.

COVID-19 impact on businesses and employmentVietnam Employment Outlook Survey in the Second Half of 2021 is aimed at forecasting the hiring intentions by employers under the impact of the global health crisis in Vietnam. The survey was conducted from mid-May to mid-July 2021, amidst the fourth wave of COVID-19 in Vietnam. This pandemic resurgence was recognized as the longest and most serious wave since the beginning, with 62/63 cities and provinces affected. According to the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), in the second quarter of 2021, there were 12.8 million people aged 15 and over across the country negatively affected by the pandemic, including those who lost their jobs, got furloughed, worked alternate shifts, reduced working hours, reduced income, etc. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with 10 - 250 employees accounted for two-thirds in our survey. Our respondents are businesses operating in 17 industries, from Manufacturing & Processing, Wholesale, Retail & Trading, Construction, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Education & Training to Construction, FMCG, Professional Consulting Services, Transportation, Communications, Hospitality and Real Estate, etc. At the time of the survey, 40% of employers reported that their businesses were impacted by the pandemic at mild to medium level (1% - 49% of activity halted), over 19% were significantly affected (50% - 79% of activity halted) and 4% said that their organizations had been shut down or faced possible closures. In total, the number of businesses affected by the pandemic from mild to severe level accounted for nearly 64%, while those remained unaffected made up for 36% of the surveyed participants. Despite the much heavier impacts of the health crisis as compared with the first half of 2021, these findings have shown the efforts and determination of the entire economy as well as the Government's companionship and direction via various policies in anti-epidemic, business support and promoting economic growth.The fourth wave of the pandemic lasting over the past three months has taken a toll on Vietnam socio-economically at a larger and more serious scale. Therefore, businesses, notably small and medium ones, are to be well prepared for the challenges ahead. Employment forecasted to be positive in the second half of 2021According to the General Statistics Office (GSO), regardless of the difficulties caused by the ongoing pandemic, GDP in the first 6 months of 2021 increased by 5.64%, higher than the growth rate of 1.82% in the same period last year. Noticeably, Manufacturing & Processing sector is the growth engine of the whole economy, contributing 2.9% points to the economic growth rate . Even though an economic picture of brighter tone is to be expected, forecasts show employers’ less confidence to recruit, compared to the first half of 2021. From our findings, more than half of surveyed enterprises (53.3%) anticipated a rise in their employment while over one-fourth (27%) said they had no plan to hire more. In total, more than 80% of the surveyed enterprises plan to increase or at least maintain the current headcounts (as compared with 93% of the equivalent index in the first two quarters). Meanwhile, nearly one fifth (19.7%) of the respondents announced their plan to trim hiring activities.Ms. Nguyen Thu Trang, Country Head of Permanent Recruitment & Executive Search Services, ManpowerGroup Vietnam, shared “We are noticing an increase in permanent recruitment and executive search, especially in IT, Electronics, Energy and High Technology. Given that the labour market is facing skills scarcity, senior IT and business transformation roles are particularly hard to fill. Moreover, under the global impact of the pandemic and technological evolution, the job market is seeing a boost in demand for positions that require digital skills, such as those in the Finance and Banking sector.” Despite the crisis, it is interesting to find that employment activities are likely to recover to pre-COVID-19 levels, though not as remarkably as in the first half of 2021. As per our survey results, 40% of employers expected that their hiring activities would return to pre-pandemic levels in the next three months, and over 24% of enterprises anticipating employment to return to normal in the next six months. In the longer term, however, over one-fourth of the enterprises (26.3%) said it would take a year or longer for their hiring to return back to normal. Strongest recruitment plans in the next three to six months were reported in six industries, namely Manufacturing & Processing, Wholesale, Retail & Trading, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), Education & Training, Construction and Professional Consulting Services. Manufacturing & Processing, the leading driver of national economy accounted for 26.5% of hiring intentions in the coming three months. Wholesale, Retail & Trading and ICT are also likely to grow stronger in the coming months, making up for 16.3% and 15.3% respectively of employers planning to hire in the short term. Ms. Le Thi Kim, Head of Staffing & Outsourcing Services, North, ManpowerGroup Vietnam shared “Since the beginning of the pandemic, the domestic labour market has been witnessing an increase in the relocation of factories from overseas to Vietnam. This also means that more job opportunities are created for the local workforce. Noticeably, ManpowerGroup Vietnam has received numerous orders for staffing and outsourcing services from domestic and foreign enterprises, especially in the manufacturing & processing sector - electronic components, automotive assembling, packaging, warehouse, and others like transportation, logistics, infrastructure construction, etc." Surveyed employers were also asked about their plan to arrange working options in order to keep their employees safe while maintaining effective business operations. The employers revealed that they would implement multiple working options for their staffs in the next 3 – 6 months, depending on the industry characteristics. About one-fourth of enterprises want to retain absolute work-place based working. Meanwhile, over 41% of the enterprises plan to implement hybrid work mode and nearly 22% choose to apply flexible shift patterns (especially in the manufacturing sector). Just nearly 9% of the surveyed companies intend to arrange for their employees to work remotely full-time. Facing the acute talent shortage caused by the global health crisis, the surveyed employers planned to use diverse workforce solutions, among which Staffing & Outsourcing and Permanent recruitment & Executive search were the leading options - chosen by 41.4% and 40.8% companies respectively. A considerable 30% of the employers chose HR consulting services - Outplacement and Leadership Development. Expatriate services (work permit and visa application) and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) were picked by over 15% and 11% respectively by the respondents as suitable solutions in the current situation. About the surveyVietnam Employment Outlook Survey in the second half of 2021 was jointly conducted online by ManpowerGroup Vietnam Research Team and the National Employment Services Center (under Department of Employment, Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs) with 152 employers in 17 industries nationwide from 14th May to 14th July 2021.

Vietnam, 18th March 2021 – According to “What Vietnamese Workers Want in the New Normal” survey deployed on November and December 2020 with 463 participants, COVID-19 should be a catalyst for a new future of work, which is flexible, diverse and wellbeing-oriented. The survey highlights workers’ well-being needs, their expectations, future of work insights and how the new normal can be made better for everyone. According to ManpowerGroup’s research on “What Workers Want”, around 93% of workers around the world have experienced some type of workplace closure measure in place. However, because of the Government’s effective actions in containing the virus, Vietnam business outlook has turned positive with only 3.5% of respondents that reported that their work had been severely impacted by the pandemic. Overall, the health impacts of COVID-19 are proved to disproportionately harm the elderly, but it is millennials who are the most vulnerable to the economic impacts of the pandemic. When asked about returning to work, a large number of Vietnamese workers felt positive going back to the workplace (66% of survey participants) while only 19% had negative responses. With the new waves of community transmission in late 2020, a proportion of workforce consider the return to workplace as an increased risk, especially working parents. The survey also shows that over one fifth (more than 21%) of the working parents participating in the survey felt negative and disinterested in returning to work. In these unpredictable times, Vietnamese workers are united in what they want to prioritize for the future – staying healthy, to learn and develop new skill sets, keep their job and bring more balance between work and life. In reference to benefits of being in the workplace, the respondents highly value opportunities for collaboration, productivity and efficiency improvement as well as appreciate the office as a way of separating work from home. However, there is still a proportion of respondents who prefer flexibly (in terms of location and schedule) or to work remotely full time. One of the top priorities of Vietnamese workers at work, almost 78% respondents, placed significance on learning and career coaching. Ms. Nguyen Thanh Huong, Country HR Manager, ManpowerGroup Vietnam shared, “It is predicted that the pandemic will last longer than expected, and with the largest reallocation of skills worldwide. Now is the time for employees to hone in-demand skills and establish career conversations with employers on technical skills development, and learning opportunities for their career development, to stay employable in the new normal.” Amidst current uncertainties, employability matters to workers and 72% of them say that simply keeping their job is the most important priority. In short, work security and well-being have been identified as the most crucial factors that both Vietnamese workers in general and working parents in particular would like to focus in the new normal.
