Expectations of Vietnamese professionals towards employers were spread through six groups – total rewards, leadership, company reputation, culture & value, work and life quality, and growth opportunity.According to Thanh Nguyễn, CEO of Anphabe, although Total Rewards remained the most important, it was becoming less and less demanding over the last three years.“Good Benefits reached the top desired driver when choosing an employer, while Competitive Base Salary has fallen gradually, landing seventh on the list of this year,” she added.The job-quitting rate this year is expected to be nine per cent. Males tend to have a higher job quitting rate than their female counterparts, while managers show a higher retention rate than non-management personnel.Three industries that had the highest job quitting rate were Manufacturing/Chemicals, FMCG, Service/Consulting/Legal. The three areas of Purchasing/Planning, Production and Marketing also had a high job quitting rate.The survey was jointly conducted online by Anphabe.com, a career network of management professionals in Việt Nam, and the global market research firm Nielsen from September to December 2015.This year the survey was successful by attracting huge participants of 22,688 experienced employees and hundreds of leading enterprises from 24 industries nationwide, Nguyễn Thị Thùy Linh, head of Market research Department, Nielsen Vietnam, said.
