According to the Vietnam Printing Association, each year, the printing industry needs at least 2,000 additional workers. However, the number of trained workers only meet half the demand ...

Admit students, lack of skilled workers

Mr. Nguyen Trong Phuc, Director of Manufacturing Ltd. Phuc Khang Trading Services, said last year, despite running all over the place but the company has yet to find a mechanic in the water plant to replace an employee who retired job. "Due to the nature of work, the company requires the candidate to be proficient, skilled, have at least 1 year experience. Vocational school students out of college pretty much, but they can not meet. There we had to ask another facility processed product "- Mr Phuc explained.

Mr. Nguyen Trong Cuong, the owner of printing and graphic design Trong Cuong (Hoc Mon district, Ho Chi Minh City), human recognition is always the most difficult problem for enterprises (companies) operating in the field of printing . Any businesses which otherwise good incentive to the employees to leave, it will surely be difficult, takes a long time to find alternative manpower.

Prof. Dr. Ngo Anh Tuan - former Dean of Print and Communication University of Technical Education HCMC, general secretary of the Printing City - said both redundant and insufficient human resources in the sector stems partly from existing DN subjects like "spend the temple" labor, skilled workers want to suddenly have such cases.

"The printing businesses have domestic habits, search, recruitment sources available on the market rather than proactive training, linked to vocational schools to train ordering. This result is unreasonable in the coal companies themselves lack the student workers still unemployed "- Mr. Tuan emphasized.

They attach importance to training, offering salaries and benefits "flashy" than domestic firms should be proactive human resources "- Mr Tuan said.
