The main reason is that employees are constantly on vacation

Everyone seems to have their own reasons for leaving. However, besides financial factors, the reality is that there are profound causes beneath the ultimate decision to leave a company.  

Lack of commitment to human development orientation 

Many managers mistakenly believe that an attractive offer of salary will be able to dominate the employee’s attachment to the organization. However this only contributes to their decision to leave. From the perspective of an employee, especially young people, they wonder about their ability to develop their inner selves, establish a position and find a long-term future direction. 

 

Indeed, according to Travis Bradberry, co-founder of TalentSmart, employees are more likely to make a decision to quit when managers do not have a clear human development (employee) strategy. He said that when leaders cannot commit to a future orientation for their employees, employees will feel disoriented and skeptical of what they can contribute to the team. Naturally, they will become depressed and not want to continue to collaborate with the corporation. 

 

Environment “closed” 

Imagine how you would feel if you were completely sealed in a room, and no matter how loud you screamed, the outside could not hear you. A “closed” working environment is easily understood as a closed room, where you only work with the directions available, and your feedback, etc. is ignored. 

 

Angela Ahrendts, senior Vice President of Apple, adds “the pressure from stereotyping will create a sense of humor in the minds of employees, and form a ‘subterranean wave’ in their psyche. In the long run, they will be able to react in different ways such as exploding in a negative or light manner. Either way, the damage is still on the business side. 

 

Moreover, when employees are bound to unnecessary stereotypes, their creativity and innovation will be killed. Instead of encouraging self-change to move forward, employees are required to follow old models, which will cause ‘stifling’ and the desire to leave the company.” 

 

“I” of the leader 

Promoting yourself to a self-proclaimed manager will cause the collective loss of a company. Employees will no longer be linked, and each will work individually. Finally, when the collective is no longer maintained, or in other words, the business is split from the inside, employees will leave to seek new ideals. This has been demonstrated through a study of LinkedIn employee behavior by the end of 2017.  

 

 

Mr [ABC], [Title related to HR or General Management] of NashTech, the leading technology group in Vietnam, agrees with this statement: “At NashTech, we always operate under the motto “Unite to develop together” because we understand that individuality is the leading factor that causes divisions and affects the development of the whole. So NashTech’s board of directors always collaborates with our employees in all matters, and act as mentors to our associates. “ 

 

Responsibility of the business to the community 

The main staff is part of the community where the business is located. Therefore, when a company is not interested in the development of the community, employees will feel disassociated with the company. They will indirectly feel neglected by the business owners and will question the management’s commitment of responsibility for them. The Millennial Impact report  Anh Phúc thêm link nguồn nhé shows Millennial employees (born 1981-1996) desired to be more engaged and dedicated to the company focus on developing local communities. 

 

 

Focus on staff development, and staff will stay with the company throughout their career. With that in mind, NashTech, a technology corporation with more than 20 years of IT experience in Vietnam, is committed to creating an “open” and professional working environment for employees.

Vietnamese young talents are capable of undertaking global projects if given the opportunity

The IT industry is growing and changing every hour around the world, and in Vietnam specifically. Being able to catch up and respond quickly to the latest technology trends is always a challenge for young people. The concern is whether Vietnamese young people are able to get themselves involved in global technology projects with international colleagues.

Ms. Tran Phan Nam – HR Director at NashTech, has shared the opportunities and challenges that young talents are facing when participating in global technology projects.

Ms. Tran Phan Nam, HR Director of NashTech, has given positive comments on Vietnamese young talents in this fierce global market

The tendency to work at global company

The tendency to work for a multinational or foreign company is increasing, not only for senior employees, but also for fresh graduates. What do you think about this?

International companies attract potential employees in a number of ways such as the professional working environment, a wide range of opportunities to learn and the challenge to improve personal skills. In my opinion, young people are “trendy” by getting themselves ready for the type of company they want to contribute to, which are, mostly, international ones. This is not a trend of international orientation but just simply a choice. Being aware of future career opportunities encourages young people to make a huge effort for the place where they aspire to work.

Could you share about the advantages and disadvantages of working at a foreign company in general?

It can’t be denied that the professional environment of multinational companies offers employees more professional development opportunities, especially to work with foreign colleagues who come from different parts of the world.

Young people are proving that they are capable of undertaking global-scale projects if given the chance. For example, at NashTech, we create opportunities for young talents to participate in global projects and to provide the most dominant technology trends for “big” clients. By continuously taking part in international projects, you are always up to date with the world’s latest trends and being an effective employee in a multinational environment.

However, competitive pressure is inevitable in any workplace. It requires employees to keep learning and putting their best effort into work. Since technology always develops, failure to move forward will push you back. Let’s look on the bright side, you should see it as an opportunity to develop yourself (smile).

How has NashTech made its workplace more international?

As the technology and advisory department of Harvey Nash Group plc, NashTech focuses on creating a dynamic work environment, where employees are encouraged to express their own creativity and personal perspectives. NashTech is where you can collaborate with foreign co-workers on “big” projects such as handling and analysing over 100 million photos for billions of customers on Google shopping, or developing automated parking technology for Ford cars. It is in these projects that talents gain a solid background and can look ahead their long-term careers.

Stay local, impact global

How are NashTech employees trained to adapt to the global working environment?

At NashTech, knowledge and practical professional skills are set through the top leading projects with international, world-class clients as well as from your experienced colleagues. You will take part in our cultural exchange programs and employees are encouraged to participate in language courses, social events and sporting activities to ensure their work-life balance. Investment in human resources is always the top priority at NashTech.

Working in a multinational environment and learning from experienced colleagues are key advantages for employees of NashTech.

Do you think the young programmers and fresh graduates meet the criteria for working in a foreign company like NashTech?

Vietnam’s economy is growing strongly, resulting in a significant demand for human resources. At the moment, we are seeking young people who are creative, willing to learn and take on challenges. Having good communication skills, a high capability in foreign languages and being passionate to self-improve are also required, alongside expertise. Proving your talent is how to stand out from other potential employees at NashTech.

Are there any specific requirements for fresh graduates to work at NashTech?

Young people will be the next generation of NashTech’s employees. What we need from them is nothing more than their creativity, critical thinking, enthusiasm at work and teamwork. We are also proud of our Fresher and Direct Entry programs where young talents can be challenged and developed.

Finally, do you have any advice for young IT students?

“Success comes only to those who are patient.” And if you wish to work for multinational companies, you should be well-equipped with your language skills.

Thank you for the interview!
