The Republic of Singapore is among the 20 smallest countries in a world. However, one should not get mistaken by its size. Today Singapore is one of the world’s most prosperous nations. The economy is driven by exports in electronics, manufacturing and machinery, financial services, tourism and the world’s largest cargo seaport.

Singapore’s economy is one of the fastest growing in Asia. Not only the local companies are expanding their businesses, but also large Western Multinational organisations are tempted to open their subsidiaries here. It is not surprising as World Bank ranked Singapore as the country with the most business-friendly regulations in the world! Therefore doing business in Singapore may sound like a really promising idea!

"We held the first in a series of our HiringBoss HR executive roundtable events this week, at the plush surroundings of the Shri Rooftop restaurant here in Ho Chi Minh City. The topic of choice this time was "Talent Acquisition in Vietnam: A Vision For The Future?" 

Our concept is to gather high level HR influencers in one place: no PowerPoint or long presentations allowed, just free-flowing chat in a relaxed ambience (with great food!)  

We purposely kept the discussion points open in a bid to invite debate...and our tactic worked.Talk ranged from discussion of the current state of talent acquisition strategy in Vietnam, to challenges faced and aspirations for the future of HR and recruiting strategy in general. 

Gathered round the table we had influencers from the world of business in Vietnam , from the worlds of banking,  real-estate, commerce and industry. All were HR Director grade or above- with a couple of CEOs thrown in for good measure. 10 guests in total, 10 points of view about the state of talent acquisition in Vietnam...and some interesting takeaways from the event. Here is a very brief run-down of a couple of interesting insights:
