HCM CITY (Biz Hub) – Pressing issues in human resource (HR) management, including employee assessment and high-performing teams, were discussed by participants in a seminar held on Thursday in HCM City.

Organised by Profiles International Southeast Asia in collaboration with Vietnamworks, the seminar attracted more than 60 domestic HR directors, company leaders, project managers and advisors.

The meeting aimed to help HR staff select the right people who will succeed in particular jobs.

Team performance, workplace harmony and lowering of turnover were other issues discussed.

In today's economy, companies said they felt pressure to hire and retain top-performing employees, even though many of these high performers tend to come with difficult personalities.

While these employees may increase productivity and efficiency, the companies said they sought to discover whether the benefits outweighed the costs of managing such employees.

Experts from Profiles Sea discussed the DISC (Dominance – Inducement - Submission – Compliance) behaviour-assessment tool to improve work productivity, teamwork and communication.

Tran Quoc Huy, Profile Sea's head of customer service department, said the main challenges that HR departments faced was how to retain talented people and how to select the right people, place them in the right roles and bring them to their full potential.

He advised that firms should use a variety of assessment methods to minimise risks and increase effectiveness in evaluating employees.

At the seminar, Profile Sea introduced employee assessments and performance management solutions to Vietnamese businesses such as the Profile Performance Indicator, Profile Managerial Fit and Profile Sales Assessment.

The solutions are used by 40,000 organisations worldwide, including Mercedes-Benz, Coca-Cola, Pacific Gas and Electric Company and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.—VNS
