Businesses in Viet Nam are looking for creativity, teamwork and active listening skills in their Future Young Employees

The Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), UNICEF and Mekong Development Research Institute (MDRI) published the “Assessment on Employability Skills Gaps and Good Practices by Businesses to Upskill Marginalized and Vulnerable Young People” report. 

This research explores the current and future-projected employability skills required for young people among three industries: apparel and footwear, travel and tourism, and information-communication technologies (ICT).

It will also summarize good practices from different stakeholders to improve young people's employability and provides recommendations for stakeholders to offer decent jobs and employability-enhancing activities for young people, with a focus on marginalized and vulnerable groups.

 

The research employs a mixed-method design, which includes desk research, and online firm survey, and qualitative interviews. The desk research provides a broad overview of the Vietnamese youth labour market and its current and future trends.

The firm survey collects information on their assessments on young workers’ skills and share their hiring plans, desired skills, and policies to hire or support disadvantaged young workers. This report focuses on adolescents aged 15-17 and young people aged 18- 29.
