Why does ManpowerGroup launch the Experis brand in Vietnam?

In recent years, the talent shortage in IT, engineering, and finance has grown globally, and Vietnam is not an exception. Specifically, the global talent shortage in 2018 has reached the highest point (45 per cent of surveyed employers) since 2006. In Vietnam, more than 500,000 employees with IT skills will be needed by 2020.

What is more, Vietnam has seen growing interest among investors in the IT, finance and banking, engineering, and healthcare sectors in recent times to cash in on the huge local potential, thus resulting in higher demand for talents. That is why our clients are increasingly seeking for talent in the IT, finance and banking, engineering, and healthcare sectors.

With its 60-year history worldwide, Experis, which specialises in highly skilled talent in IT, engineering, finance, healthcare, and executives, is the right workforce solution for Vietnam to address this acute talent shortage among businesses.

How is Experis different from other recruitment companies on the market? How can the brand help businesses in Vietnam meet their growing demand for skilled workforce?

The first advantage that makes Experis stand out in the market is the experience and expertise we have developed through operating in more than 50 countries, working with over 80 per cent of the Fortune Global 500, and placing 38,000 skilled professionals every day.

The second advantage is the increased precision as Experis consultants dig deep to understand the specific needs of organisations. Then we find the professionals whose skills and experience make them the best technical and cultural match for organisations.

Individualised solutions are our third advantage. Because we know that every workforce challenge is unique and that each company’s challenges evolve, so we tailor the best solutions for each of them.

Last but not least, Experis has a vast network of workforce consultants in local markets around the world. We combine local knowledge and personal insights with global resources to give clients an edge in the race for talent.

In Vietnam, most businesses are now struggling in finding the right talent in the IT, engineering, finance, banking, and healthcare sectors. With our professional recruitment and assessment techniques, we can identify the right professional talent for any position, either contractual or permanent.

Our consultants have deep industry knowledge and understand the workforce challenges businesses are facing. We can help them find professionals with the right skills and the experience they are looking for up to the executive level. Also we can work with them locally, nationally, globally or virtually to provide them with short-term contractors, permanent employees or project solutions.

Thus, we know how to find the right professionals with the skills that organisations need to grow their businesses timely.

Universities and vocational training schools in Vietnam are also seeking solutions to improve training quality. How can they benefit from Experis?

Experis can provide schools and universities with soft skills training, job opportunities, talks on career orientation, and job search skills. Experis will also collaborate with businesses to create opportunities of internship and further training in accordance with business requirements.

We have just signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the International Training and Education Centre under Ho Chi Minh City University of Science. The partnership will pave the way for our practical support in providing soft skills and job search skills training as well as job opportunities to the students following Auckland University of Technology (AUT) tertiary education.

We are also looking to cooperate with other universities and training centres in Vietnam to bring the best benefits to them.

With the launch of Experis, what are ManpowerGroup's future targets for the Vietnamese market?

Our target in the future is to address the complex workforce challenges Vietnamese organisations are facing today, from contingent and permanent staffing to talent management, outsourcing, and talent development.

Leveraging our 60 years of experience and expertise in 50 countries worldwide, we want to contribute to bridging the talent shortage in specialised areas and improving the skills of future workforce. We believe that powering the future of work is possible.

The launch of Experis once again shows ManpowerGroup’s commitment to help Vietnam develop skilled talent so that the local workforce can adapt to the requirements of automation and digitisation which is a critical issue today.
