Event background

Once we get over the “exotica” of Viet Nam, we find that we experience the same work issues like everywhere else, … unhappy employees, theft in the workplace, fraud, and more. The screening of employee candidates has long been used to help avoid potential problem employees or, at least, limit them as best we can. But, this service is relatively new in Viet Nam, and we too often face uncooperative schools and former employers who don’t understand the message. Don’t even get me started on how “officialdom” responds (or doesn’t) to queries!

The same is true for Due Diligence (DD) reviews of potential JV partners or suppliers. Vietnamese society has long stayed away from “asking questions” of others, probably because this seems like police work. So, many companies simply say such and such company was recommended or “we’ve always used them.” But as compliance drives more and more of how we do business, and with whom, the need for solid DD research is crucial to good business.
