Organizations need a solid core - strong mid-level managers and leaders. Mid-level managers act as the chain eye between the executive level and mass at the front line.
Vietnam has a huge potential labor force, but all multi-national companies operating in Vietnam are facing a scarce supply of talents at executive and middle management levels. This has not only created escalated employee expectations but also impacted the recruitment and retention practices of companies.
