Vietnam’s leading job website VietnamWorks is introducing international human resources expert Keng Chong Yan to HR professionals in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi for two training events.

The workshops, in the south on September 24 and the north September 26, included global and local exchanges of knowledge and experience. Yan focused on how to compete for scarce talent, to ensure the commitment and retention of newly hired talent, and how to compete across multiple talent segments and workforce demographics.

Yan introduced the concept Employer Value Proposition as an “employment brand commitment”, saying that it would ensure its credibility in “your war for talent.”

The concept is understood as the balance of the rewards and benefits that are received by employees in return for their performance at the workplace. Yan said it was a key differentiator in attracting, engaging and retaining talent.

VietnamWorks’ founder and chairman Jonah Levey said in the war for talent, the very best always have multiple job offers, and employers understand that and know there is a limited supply of smart, talented executives. “They need to convince the best, most capable applicants to accept a job at their company and not accept a job with their competitor,” he elaborated.

The workshops attracted over 300 human resources practitioners and senior leaders from various industries signed up to attend. Well-known attendees included Samsung, Coca Cola, Unilever, Panasonic, FPT and Gameloft.
