A loyal worker is essential, and in Vietnam, job-hopping is almost unheard of. Employees will stay with one company for many years, and staff retention rates are high.

The Vietnamese have a strong work ethic and staff will stay on-task and get the job done – in Vietnam commitment is demonstrated by achieving goals through hard work and determination.
Vietnamese parents, in general, devote a lot of time and money towards education for their children. It is not unusual for them to pay for additional tuition outside of school and make personal sacrifices to do so. Schooling in general, has a strong regard for maths, science and technology. In the past, Vietnam’s skills development for young people suffered from disconnects between employers, students, universities and vocational schools, however in recent years this has been addressed and the skills-shortages reported a few years ago are no longer such an issue. School education as undergone reform and likewise many higher education providers now realise the importance of ‘work-ready’ skills and incorporate internships and on-the-job training. A remaining challenge is to develop school leavers who are critical thinkers and problem solvers, and who can continue to acquire technical skills throughout their working lives.
Generally, young Vietnamese love to study and are dedicated professionals when entering the workforce. They are taught that the harder they work, the more successful they will become. In Vietnamese society, social order and functions rely on family education, a concept which is viewed as complementary to school education. Vietnamese family life and education reflect religious beliefs, the immediate social environment of the family and the ever-changing general economic conditions.
A 2016 report by the HSBC Bank in Vietnam found that 60 percent of Vietnamese parents would be willing to go into debt to fund their child’s university education, and paying for childrens’ education was ranked by almost half of parents as more important than contributing to their own retirement savings. The report found that despite the financial concerns, Vietnamese parents are investing more and more in their children’s education.
It’s no wonder that Vietnamese staff so often impress their employers – they want to do well for themselves, their family, and extended family. Vietnam is fast becoming the new preferred location in the Asia-Pacific region to do business, and the workforce is reliable, loyal, creative and committed.
