Attracting talented workers and workforce development in the era of tight labor markets compounded with rising inflation (and wages) is a key topic on many executives’ minds in Vietnam these days. We hope to share digital tools and innovative approaches to recruitment, improving employee retention through flexible pay, rewards and engagement platforms, especially targeting low-to-middle-income employee groups.

Co-Founder and CEO, Nano Technologies (Vui App)
From McKinsey to Harvard Business School, Mr. Dzung Dang held the General Manager role at Uber Vietnam and then ZaloPay. After years of exploring and leading in two dominant business fields – Finance and Technology, he asked himself: “How to leverage softwares and business model innovations to sideline the loan shark industry which plagues lives of millions?”
Nano Technologies was founded in 2020, building a novel application dubbed Vui App which empowers workers to access earned salary before payday and help employers better attract and retain people. Rethinking the dated monthly payroll model for millions of workers, Nano was the first Vietnamese startup accepted into Y Combinator (YC) – the renowned accelerator program that launched Airbnb and Stripe, etc. “We believe everyone who works hard deserves financial security. We are committed to our employer clients on a journey to solve this problem and build caring workplaces and resilient organizations”, Mr. Dzung Dang said.
