58 percent of employers have hired employees based on their potential, and 94 percent of them said their potential-based hires had become a valuable part of their teams. 

HCM City (VNS/VNA) – Hiring employees based on their potential will
be important in the new economy, according to an annual whitepaper report
published by Robert Walters, an international recruiting firm.

The report was based on a survey of 3,500 professionals, including 1,200 hiring

94 percent of them said their potential-based hires had become a valuable part
of their teams.

“Hiring based on potential is highlighting an opportunity for employers and
employees to learn from each other,” he said, adding that hiring would help
employers save time and money.

More than 89 percent of companies in Vietnam take more than a month to find a
candidate who is a close fit for the job description and salary. But 40 percent
of those hires do not work out, and most employees take a month to a year to
leave the role due to mismatch in culture, attitude and ethics.

The survey found that 55 percent of candidates with potential said they valued

“The challenge of the unknown and the excitement of acquiring new skills keep
them motivated and engaged and help retain them for longer,” she added.

While relevant experience is perceived to be a top priority, the ability to
deliver satisfactory work, display a good work attitude and adapt to company
culture are increasingly being valued in the workplace, according to…
