3.1. Importance of human resource planning

3.1.1. General

Human resource planning is often overlooked, especially in the early stages of

a business when the focus is solely on profitability and proving the business model.
There comes a time however, when planning is an absolute necessity. Not only does it
shield the business from hefty legal consequences, planning creates a smooth process
for employee management that is both efficient and effective. The HR team often
coordinates with payroll to manage paperwork and ensure everyone is properly
enlisted in the company and company programs while being paid in a timely manner
The human resources department has an important function within most
businesses. Any business that relies on multiple employees to function stands to
benefit from human resource planning. Not only does the HR department become a
tool of legal compliance, they also work strategically with the business to manage
growth, employee issues, training and a number of organizational tasks that simply
require an HR specialty approach
There are several elements to human resource planning and all are equally
important. The first is the actual planning of the workforce. Even in a small business,
specialized skill sets are not always easy to source and planning for a growing


workforce is critical. Planning for a reduction in the workforce is also intensive and
requires strategic thinking to work through temporary or permanent layoffs. Legal
planning and process building are used to shield the company from legal ramifications
for discrimination of workplace misconduct. The human resources department is
responsible for educating and training employees on company policy, they handle
legal aspects of the employee relationship like workers’ compensation and they
communicate with every department in the business. Human resources also work as a
bridge between employees and payroll by ensuring contracts are executed and
honored. Effective planning in the human resources department leaves the managers
in position to focus on meeting goals that are responsible for driving revenue rather
than spending time dealing with administrative issues and employee paperwork

a. Planning for Growth

The company stands to gain returns by scaling a workforce quickly. If a plan is

in place, the company can bid on bigger contracts and effectively grow without being
understaffed. The planning aspect applies to the additions of permanent employees,
temporary employees and contract workers. A temporary growth opportunity often
calls for seasonal or contract labor to avoid a cycle of hiring and firing. Planning to
meet these expectations falls on human resources
When a company needs to grow quickly or add a large seasonal workforce,
human resources must plan for the hiring and manage recruiting. Recruiting fairs,
advertising and other recruiting events are largely responsible for locating the
workforce and placing them in jobs while still following company policies and
procedures. A large retailer may hire thousands of employees for the holiday season
on temporary work arrangements. Despite being temporary, human resources is still
responsible for educating each employee on company policies, workplace safety
guidelines and their role within the company. This is often done in the form of a
contract where the employee signs off after receiving the training and agrees to follow
the company policies. This holds the employee responsible for their actions at work
and protects the company from legal actions if they fail to comply. It's especially
important when large numbers of new people are entering the workplace


simultaneously. Not only does the human resource planning and training help the new
employees understand their roles and the rules, it reduces chaos and guides everyone
into position so they can begin working and executing their daily tasks
Growth planning is also a requirement to receive contracts in many cases.
Government contracts are one common example where the company must prove they
can access the workforce necessary to complete a contract. Any large scale, contract
based business deal is a candidate for human resources planning of this nature. Failing
to demonstrate an ability to access and hire a qualified workforce may remove the
company from the running for a contract

b. Scaling Down

When you think about what is involved in human resource planning, scaling
down and laying off employees does not always come to mind. It is however a critical
aspect of planning. A business can lose a key client or account that results in a larger
workforce than necessary. This can capsize a business financially and scaling down
becomes an unfortunate necessity. Laying off employees can happen in a temporary or
permanent fashion. Layoffs come with some legal consequences if handled
improperly and the human resources department must ensure each layoff is justified
and handled properly. They must work through the employee pool and determine who
must leave based on input from management. Determining layoffs is based on
seniority, immediate need and financial resource planning. Some employees will
require severance packages and unemployment benefit eligibility notification and
guidance. Contracts for a severance are built by the legal team and the human resource
department. A HR manager is often present during the individual or group layoff
announcement to ensure everything is handled properly
Planning throughout a layoff process is not only prudent for the company, it
ensures the employees have the maximum notice possible, access to unemployment
benefits and a genuine ability to move forward with their lives while seeking new
work. They should also understand why the layoffs happened so there is no lame on
their shoulders. Sometimes, business just goes in the wrong direction. Communicating


this difficult message effectively requires an excellent human resources team that
really understands the process

c. Productivity and Employee Wellness

Productivity in the workplace is measured by managers and department heads

but human resource planning can influence productivity through employee wellness
programs and initiatives that create a healthy and happy workplace where individuals
have the energy and positive attitudes required to succeed
Every workplace is different but human resources departments plan to ensure
employees have the minimum number of breaks required by law. Additionally, they
can introduce incentive programs, health programs, gym membership discounts and
general wellness programs to create a healthy and productive workplace. Even the
layout of furniture, introduction of plants to an office and change in the lighting can
have a major impact on employee wellness. Measuring productivity before and after
the implementation of each program can demonstrate increases in output. Building a
healthy workplace also cuts down on sick days and improves the long-term
capabilities of each employee. The human resource planning behind wellness and
productivity programs can increase the bottom line in the long run while improving
morale in the workplace
HR acts as a communication tool with employees as well. They can survey
employees while ensuring that no repercussions will be executed for undesirable
answers. The ability to collect honest employee feedback functions as a key identifier
for weak points in the business. The human resources department can essentially
uncover hidden issues that employees are not comfortable resolving otherwise. The
survey process can have a major positive impact on driving a more successful
In addition to basic wellness and creating a positive work-space, human
resources is responsible for addressing mental health. They are a neutral resource and
field reports of harassment and workplace misconduct. This outlet is important for
developing a safe place of work for everyone. If a trend of harassment or misconduct
develops, the department is responsible for planning a course of action to resolve the


issue. If they have done the planning necessary to build an employee handbook with
policies that each employee has learned and signed in a contract, taking action is easy
to justify from a legal and logical point of view. In order to manage conflict and
practice conflict resolution however, advanced planning must take place to define
clear boundaries and draw an actionable road map to effectively handle those

d. Risk Management

In the larger sense of things, human resource management serves to manage

and mitigate risk. The planning processes create a safe working environment that
meets regulatory standards while building a healthy environment. This allows
employees the opportunity to flourish in an equal opportunity workplace. It also limits
legal liability for the company which does far more than protect just the company. A
large suit has the potential to shut a company down and remove the jobs for everyone
including those who are not involved. The risk management through HR ensures the
company can withstand accusations because it followed a strict human resources
procedure and it protects the workers as much as the company itself

3.1.2. Human resource planning of FPT Telecom

The Corporation’s personnel continued to grow in size and level of

accomplishment. By the end of December 2017, the total headcount (including the
distribution and retail segment) has reached 32,092 people, an increase of 13%
compared with 2016. The total headcount excluding the distribution and retail
segment was 25,322 people (up 14,2% YoY), with the number of engineers,
programmers and IT experts reaching 12,181 people, up 18.7% from 2016 and
accounting for 48% of the total headcount of the Corporation. The number of
specialists in these areas excluding the distribution and retail segment in 2016 was
10,265 people. In order to improve employees’ capabilities to keep up-to-date with
changes in the business and technology world, FPT has placed a stronger focus on
internal training. The Board of Management has issued a training policy that requires
FPT employees to participate in continuous training programs suggested by FPT
Corporate University, or complete at least one online course. In 2017, 268,864


employee training sessions with a total of more than 1.7 million hours of training
recorded; 3,551 technology certificates were obtained by FPT employees from global
tech-giants, bringing the total number of international technology certificates
possessed by FPT employees to 6,834 certificates, almost double that of 2016.
Compensation, welfare policies, enhanced working facilities as well as many other
measures were conducted during the year to better provide for the employees. The
annual employee survey has revealed that we have an active, professional, and flexible
working environment with friendly and supportive colleagues, good promotion
prospects, and excellent training and development opportunities, all offered with
competitive compensation packages
Considering people as the core values, FPT always focuses on human resource
management. But this is a complex category and there is no common solution to
solving human resource problems
In the context of increasingly fierce competition in the market, sustainable
competitive advantage of businesses will depend on the individuals in the
organization. Big businesses identify people as their core values. So how to empower
the community? The secret lies in the art of human resource management
For FPT, the company always focuses on planning because planning is an
important issue with the survival of the company. Properly planning the missing
positions as well as good positions and not-good-enough ones is the way to propose
appropriate policies such as recruitment, promotion, etc. Through the positions that
the company is recruiting, people can understand partly about how they plan and
describe their job positions

3.2. Details of FPT Telecom human resource planning

3.2.1. Quantity of human resource

After 20 years of establishment and development, FPT Telecom has covered

59/63 cities and provinces across the country, owning a 9,200 km North - South
backbone line, bringing to market the connecting services for users. Internet use. The
most recent products are FPT Television and FPT Play services, and soon there will
be a smart camera and many other products to be delivered to customers. In the past


20 years, this unit has maintained a growth rate of over 20% per year, becoming one
of the leading Internet enterprises in Vietnam. In addition, the company is putting its
mark on the international market by taking the number one position in service
provision in Cambodia, being the first foreign telecommunications enterprise licensed
to deploy infrastructure and preparing to provide telecommunication services in
And within the next 10 years of FPT Telecom, General Director Nguyen Van
Khoa set 5 main directions for development strategy. It is widely covered nationwide

developing FPT television services; developing OTT services such as FPT Play,
Fshare, Star Talk; IoT trend and finally globalization. FPT Telecom Chairman Chu
Thanh Ha set the target of FPT Telecom to become one of the key technology
enterprises of the Vietnamese economy, of which each Vietnamese citizen uses at
least one product of FPT Telecom
In order to fulfill that dream, according to the Chairman, not only improving
infrastructure, changing organizations, FPT Telecom also has to develop human
resource, such as: Regular rotation, creating generations of young officer, core forces
in units to create new vitality for the business. And the parts to achieve OKR
(Objectives and Key Results) will lie in the new services, new business activities, etc.
General Director Nguyen Van Khoa affirmed that FPT Telecom will continuously
seek and create management staff with the expectation of 50 new staffs found each
Sharing the action program 2018-2020 at FPT Telecom Leadership
Conference, General Director Nguyen Van Khoa affirmed that there will be 6
important things to be done in this period. “One of the most important tasks that we
need to implement for FPT Telecom is human resource,” Mr. Khoa emphasized and
added, in the last 5 years, the unit has promoted the rotation of staff. in FPT Telecom
“and for a while, we run out of reserve staff”
According to FPT Telecom's leaders, the proactive and early detection of
promising staff and young talents to put into sources creation programs is an
important solution to supplement the management team of the next generation.


Specifically, management levels must plan personnel at the "regional" units, including
the work of discovering, praising, training and introducing FPT Telecom to quickly
acquire new workforce who are ready to take over the duties as well as work rotation.
The new managers will be ready immediately for training, capturing new points to
meet requirements in areas where the company will expand. Each year, FPT Telecom
will find 50 people and through many tasks, the working process will add 25
participants in the Leadership Conference next year. Thus, in three years 2018-2020,
the whole FPT Telecom system will have at least 150 new positions, from the branch
director or more
At the same time, the Human Resources Department of FPT Telecom
announced internal recruitment of managerial positions to develop managerial human
resources in seven business regions across the country. Specifically, from December 1
2018, the Human Resource Department of the Organization (FHR) implemented an
internal recruitment plan for the positions of managerial staff such as the Board of
Directors, Sales Manager, Head/ Deputy Head of Customer Services, Head of
Technical Department, Head of General Department and Chief Accountant at centers
and branches of business areas. Participants include employees working at FPT
Telecom who need to develop themselves in work or external candidates introduced
by FPT Telecom who want to seek opportunities and desire to join the unit
According to the FHR representative, the internal recruitment program of managerial
positions aims to prioritize and create conditions for employees across the company to
see opportunities for development at work and take initiative in grasping
In recent years, FPT Telecom has appointed many young management
positions in the age of about 30 years old such as Deputy Director of the Center for
Development and Management of Infrastructure, Director of Soc Trang branch,
Deputy Director of Ninh Thuan branch, etc

3.2.2. Quality of human resource

In the opening session of FPT Telecom Technology Day in Hanoi, by

redrawing Vietnam's poor Internet picture in 1996-1997, FPT Telecom Chairman Chu
Thanh Ha pointed out the importance of technology to life and the inevitable path of


FPT Telecom today. She also spent her time sharing the 5 latest technology trends
launched at technology conferences around the world including: 5G, Internet of thing
(IoT), virtualization, integration between Wifi and LTE networks, Cloud. Technology
in the world today is making such spectacular progress. Now, machines and people
are no longer operating independently but increasingly attached, everything is directed
towards a "smarter" trend, SMAC technology is increasingly spreading. “The success
of FPT Telecom in the coming time depends greatly on technology forces. I hope that
all of you will try your best to create, research and apply new technologies to achieve
the strategic objectives of the company”, said Ms. Ha
And General Director Nguyen Van Khoa emphasized that in order to
implement the long-term strategies that Ms. Ha had put forward, every technical
officer of FPT Telecom from branch to HO had to join hands. “The engineering
technology team is an important base, a lifeline for the development of FPT Telecom.
The future of the company depends greatly on this team because a telecommunication
company is only strong when it has a good technology base and no matter how good
the sales business is, if the deployment and maintenance is not good, customers will
also leave”, he said
To do that, the key point is to build and develop technology staff. Each
technical officer at all levels and especially at the branch needs to know all
infrastructure and technology issues and can handle arising technical problems. At the
same time, enhancing the knowledge and learning of certificates so that FPT Telecom
has experts in every branch and in all fields. Each technical officer starts from the
simplest things, finish daily duties, constantly cultivates knowledge and learns from
each other to improve skills. Each individual should not keep "capital" for their own
but should actively transmit the existing experiences to his colleagues because
knowledge is only valuable when transmitted and spread
Especially, given the dizzying changes in technology trends in the world today,
the technical team also needs to eliminate the conservative nature, be willing to
change, actively update new things to fulfill the development. Technicians must have
a strong desire to learn. Managers must transmit aspirations and learning opportunities


to subordinates. Promoting the spirit of learning and creativity is the foundation to

bring the technology of FPT Telecom to reach out

3.3. Human resource planning process

Human resource planning is carried out according to the following process:

• Forecast of human resource needs
• Analysis of the situation of human resources
• Forecast of human resource supplies
• Making decisions to increase or decrease human resources
• Implementation plan
• Evaluate the plan implementation

3.3.1. Forecast of human resource needs

Nowadays, the pace of development as well as the level of science and

technology of society is tremendously increasing. With the characteristics of the
business, Science and Technology has a great influence on FPT Telecom. The
company will launch many high-tech products such as Home Security system, cloud
computing application to store data and access via smartphones anytime, anywhere, or
smart services following the IoT trend. Therefore, the company needs to have human
resources possessing comprehensive capabilities of expertise, skills, working attitude
for employees to keep up with the technology of the era, creating a more sustainable
development company
As a joint stock company operating in the field of technology, FPT Telecom
requires high professional skills, especially in computing, electrical equipment,... of
labor. Each job position will have specific requirements corresponding to the job
description. Since then, HR staffs must consider the recruitment standards, the gender
gap of men and women, the age of the company
Besides, FPT Telecom has a clear and feasible business strategy. With the
pioneering mission of bringing the Internet to the people of Vietnam and wishing
every Vietnamese family to use at least one service of FPT Telecom, the company
constantly strives to invest in infrastructure, upgrade product and service quality,
enhance the application of new technologies to bring to customers the outstanding


experience, besides enhancing awareness and working capacity for employees, etc.
This strategy affects the company's human resource management activities such as
recruitment integration, right people for right jobs, investment in training and
developing human resources to meet international standards. Therefore, company
need employees for positions such as telecommunication and maintenance technician,
telecommunication infrastructure management technician, partner management staff,
customer care staff,... to provide better services to customers, maintain and develop
sustainable relationships with stakeholders
In other markets, FPT conducts "standardization" of human resources by
requiring employees to participate in language courses to improve their foreign
language skills. After a certain time, some employees will be trained to become their
"experts in the field". Along with that, FPT also thought about recruiting international
personnel from countries like India and Malaysia. Not only adding human resources
for the globalization strategy in the coming time, FPT Telecom will continue to recruit
senior personnel. Accordingly, the company is looking for new people who are skilled
in developing their knowledge, skills and strategies to lead the company to global
integration and development

3.3.2. Analysis of the situation of human resources

The number of employees of FPT Telecom tends to increase over the years
from 2012 to 2017

The quality of internal labor resources is reflected in the working skills,

education level as well as the ability to harmonize with the organizational
environment. The proportion of staff with university or higher education is a large part
and the rest also have training with certain specialties
The rate of young workers continues to be maintained, in 2017, the number of
employees under 35 years old of FPT accounted for 65%, in line with the specific
characteristics of the industry


3.3.3. Forecast of human resources supplies

a. The internal supply of human resources

Internal labor supply includes all existing individuals working for the
organization. These employees can be used to secure the supply of labor by
maintaining employees in the current position or moving, advancing to fill other
positions in the organization. Internal labor supply may change constantly because
the organization may accept new employees, former employees may leave the
organization (move to another company), resign, retire, die or be fired
For internal recruitment, the company primarily applies for management
positions for employees with outstanding achievements to promote, stimulate the
spirit and effort of employees
To ensure the internal supply forecast and future supply of human resources for
organizations, administrator needs information systems: human resources datas, a
description of the number of employees at each job in organizations, qualifications of
There are both advantages and disadvantages of internal recruiment:
The disadvantages: Depending on the size
The main advantages of the company, there may be limitations
in internal recruitment

 The cost is lower than the  The number of candidates is few,

advertisement for outside candidates. especially candidates who are right and
 Connect and access jobs faster qualified
 Recruitment time is faster.  The direct manager may not want
 Lower risk to give up his staff
 Talent development - Create  The lack of cultural diversity and
opportunities for employees to expand new ideas compared to external

2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017

The number of employees of FPT Telecom tends to increase over the years so
this is a good signal of the abundance of internal labor supply for the company

Human resource structure by education

Undergraduate or Post-
38% graduate
College or Technical school

62% Unskilled labour

The proportion of staff with university or higher education is a large part and
the rest also have training with certain specialties. Moreover, in 2017, FPT telecom
specially invested in training activities for employees about new technology, trends of
the 4.0 revolution such as cloud computing, IoT ... with a budget of 77,9 billion VND
has created a high quality human resource, in accordance with the company's higher
rankings of recruitment criteria. It increases the quality of human resources supply for
the company internally


Human resource structure by age


Under 25
Over 35


The rate of young workers continues to be maintained, in 2017, the number of

employees under 35 years old of FPT accounted for 65%, in line with the specific
characteristics of the industry and this proves the company's abundant young human
resources, a potential source of manpower for other positions or senior positions in the
FPT Telecom is always proactive in discovering promising employees and
young talents to put them into source creation programs soon. This is an important
solution to complement the management team of the next generation. Specifically,
management levels must plan personnel at the "regional" units, including the work of
discovering, praising, training and introducing FPT Telecom to quickly have new
cadres ready to undertake mission. From 2015 until now, FPT Telecom has promoted
the rotation of staff in FPT Telecom. According to estimates, in three years 2018-
2020, FPT Telecom's entire system will recruit about 150 managerial positions
internally to develop management human resources in business areas across the

b. The external supply of human resources

Predicting external supply of labor is a very important job because the

organization's human resources are often fluctuated because some people are working
in the organization but need to move to another place, retire, get sick pain, death,
accident, disciplinary dismissal, etc. Therefore, the need for additional human


resources appears and additional sources for this number must be sought from the
external labor market
On the other hand, due to the need to develop and expand production, FPT
telecom needs more human resources to complete production tasks. Therefore,
predicting the supply of human resources from the external labor market allows
organizations to see the potential of labor, human resources can provide for the
organization and take measures to attract human resources in accordance with love.
organization needs when needed

 Population structure

The current population of Vietnam is 97,113,466 people on February 28, 2019,

according to the latest figures from the United Nations. Vietnam's population
currently accounts for 1.27% of the world's population. Vietnam is ranked 14th in the
world in the ranking of countries and territories. The average age in Vietnam is 31
years old. Besides the advantage of a large population size, the high population
growth rate has provided an abundant human resource in terms of quantity. Therefore,
the supply of human resources is still favorable in terms of quantity but FPT telecom
also faces difficulties in finding the right people for the job positions, especially in
terms of quality

 The size and structure of the social labor force

In Vietnam, the size of labor force aged 15 and over reached 54.52 million
people, an increase of 0.3% compared to the second quarter of 2016, women
decreased by 0.31%, urban areas increased by 0.28%. In the second quarter of 2017,
the labor force participation rate of the population aged 15 and over was 76.45%,
down from the first quarter of 2017 and the same period last year
In the second quarter of 2017, there were 1,081 thousand workers in the
unemployed age, decreasing by 20,000 people compared to Q1 / 2017 and 7.1
thousand people compared to the second quarter of 2016. Unemployment rate of
workers in the age group decreased to 2.26%, the lowest in the last 5 quarters. The
number of unemployed people with "university or higher" qualifications is 183.1
thousand people, an increase of 44.2 thousand people compared to the first quarter of


2017; unemployment rate of this group was 3.63% (the previous quarter was 2.79%).
The group of "college" qualifications has 82.6 thousand unemployed people, down
21.6 thousand people compared to the first quarter of 2017; Unemployment rate in this
group decreased to 4.96% but remained at the highest level. The group of
"intermediate" qualifications has 92.7 thousand unemployed people, an increase of 9.4
thousand people, the unemployment rate is 3.5%
The information and data above show the abundant supply human resources,
which means FPT telecom can easily attract labor for the jobs
However, the structure of labor distribution by industry is unbalanced.
Proportion of employees working for industries that need to accelerate development in
the period 2011-2020 to serve the industrialization and modernization of the country
such as: Information technology, supporting industries, health, etc. only
approximately 1% of each industry, while 47.4% of workers work in agriculture-
forestry-fishery or simple labor. The structure of training human resources is not
reasonable. The rate of university and college training compared to intermediate and
technical workers is 7/3, leading to the situation of "lack of teachers". Graduates find
it difficult to find suitable jobs, lack of skills to integrate, team work, communicate
with foreigners, apply information technology

 The quality of human resources

The quality of human resources is a very important criteria on in analyzing the

supply of human resources from outside. If the quality of human resources is high and
diverse, it will create opportunities for organizations capable of attracting the
workforce suitable for job requirements
According to forecasts of Vietnamworks, nearly 80,000 IT human resources
will be graduated in 2017 and 2018. This figure shows that the supply of human
resources is very little in reality
In addition, according to the World Bank, Vietnam's quality of human
resources reached 3.79/10 points, ranking 11th among 12 countries surveyed in Asia.
While South Korea reached 6.91/10 points, India reached 5.76/10 points, Malaysia
reached 5.59/10 points. This assessment also shows that our human resources are


weak in quality, lack of dynamism and creativity, industrial labor style. The quality of
training, structure by industry, field, distribution by region, region, locality of human
resources is not really suitable to the needs of society, causing waste of State
resources. and society. High-quality human resources, skilled workers are still lacking
compared to social needs to develop key economic sectors of Vietnam, especially to
participate in global value chains as well as upgrading. Vietnam's position in that
value chain. This is also the judgment of domestic experts: the quality of human
resources in Vietnam is low and has a large gap with other countries in the region
The number of employees with professional qualifications tends to know the
theory quite well, but is poor in practical capacity and adaptability in an industrial
competitive environment. According to statistics, the percentage of unskilled workers
accounts for nearly 85% (71% in urban areas and 91% in rural areas). Most of
employers are not satisfied with labor quality, especially working skills of workers

3.3.4. Making decisions to increase or decrease human resources

The company will compare the demand for human resources with the current
situation of human resources to determine whether human resources are in surplus or
inadequate compared to the needs of enterprises. After that, the company selected
solutions to overcome the excess or shortage of manpower
With the continuous development of customer demand for internet and
telecommunication services, the company always strives to expand the ability to meet
the needs with the best quality.
Companies often plan to recruit quite a number of employees in many positions
in different departments. With the advantage of the company, there is a strong
corporate culture, characteristics, dynamic working environment, attractive
compensation, so every time the recruitment notice is made, the number of
applications submitted to the company is very high, due to FPT Telecom always has
the advantage to choose the best and suitable employees

3.3.5. Implementation plan

Implementation plan usually includes the following main contents:

• Employee recruitment plan


• Plan to reorganize the organizational structure

• Plan to promote and transfer employees
• Plan to reduce redundant labor
The company will plan in accordance with the current situation

3.3.6. Evaluate the plan implementation

When evaluating, the company will:

• Determine the differences between the goals outlined with the process of
implementing the plan
• Analyzing the causes of such deviations
• Proposing deviation adjustment solutions and finishing measures
After planning the necessary human resources in the future, the company needs
to look for this human resource to ensure available human resources when needed


4.1. Recruitment objective

A good recruitment program needs to serve many objectives and sometimes

these objectives are contradictory. FPT Telecom with the vision to “become a new
type of organization, prosperous, with effort and creativity in science, engineering and
technology, as customer satisfaction, contributing to national prosperity, gives each
member fully developed conditions of talent and material, mental enrichment” has
corresponding objectives. The objectives often mentioned are:
• Attracting a large number of candidates needed for selection
• Attracting high rates of capable employees who are interested in accepting
work offers
• The goals after hiring employees should also be considered - the recruitment
process must create employees who do a good job and accept to work for the
organization within a reasonable amount of time.
• Recruiting efforts should have an external benefit effect, which is the overall
image of the organization should be strengthened
• All of these goals should be met at the fastest and least cost-effective level


Balancing different goals should be done with reference to the organization's

strategy and value

4.2. Recruitment philosophy

FPT Telecom invests heavily in training activities within the enterprise and has
a plan to develop source staff right from the start. Therefore, FPT Telecom tends to
help its employees promote to the higher positions. In the lower ranks, the company
recruits candidates who meet the conditions from the outside and then going further
FPT Telecom emphasizes on selecting those who wish to work longer than just
filling in the blanks. The company wants to find candidates who meet the current
position requirements but also considers their future management and development
capabilities. This approach will take longer but will also bring long-term benefits to
the company
FPT Telecom with code of conduct and ethics “Respect – Innovation – Team
spirit – Objectivity – Exemplarity – Wisdom” always want to ensure the diversity of
its employees. Recruitment activities encourage the participation of everyone both
outside and inside, welcoming and supporting all candidates
FPT Telecom considers its candidates as customers who need to serve. The
company spends time and money to determine the candidates' desires and redesign the
recruiting activities for each different human resource segment after each recruitment
FPT Telecom values morality, fairness and honesty in the recruitment process

4.3. Recruitment strategy

With the globalization strategy, FPT telecom is making efforts in training and
selecting highly qualified human resources to achieve future growth targets.
Accordingly, the company is looking for new employees, people with skills to deploy
in the global company, extensive knowledge of the globe. In order to focus on
promoting globalization as well as strengthening its position in traditional fields in the
domestic market, FPT will increase investment in new technologies and research and
development activities; boosting M&A activities. Therefore, the group also actively
"prayed" to international figures with achievements in M&A in the world to


implement this activity to supplement the necessary capabilities, shorten the time to
market and quickly expand customer list

4.4. Recruitment process

The recruitment process at the company is divided into two processes: staff
recruitment process and senior staff recruitment process

4.4.1. Staff recruitment process

Stage 1: Recruitment phase

The recruitment session of FPT takes place frequently based on the demand
identified beforewards. The fact that the company has conducted public recruitment
objectively contributes to ensuring sufficient number of candidates' files, attracting
and recruiting excellent people who are suitable with the corporation culture and the
job position

 Internal sources

For internal sources, the company mainly applies to management positions to

provide employees with outstanding achievements the opportunity to get promoted,
encouraging the attitude of effortful and hard-working
Through the network and internal documents, the company publishes its recruitment
needs. Popular forms of communication include: message boards, employee email
notifications, website announcements, employee exchange forums and each of the
internal newspapers unit
The target is all FPT employees who have needs and desire to change the working
environment. The position is quite diverse, so it attracts the attention of employees
from many levels

 Recruiting from university

Through schools, clubs, youth groups, the company introduced the recruitment
position. The most common way to do this is that the recruitment department will
send a notice of vacancy through the students' email system, so that students who want
it can register. Those students who are highly appreciated for their studies, union
work, etc. will be recruited directly to contact, offering the opportunity to work at FPT


 Recruiting through newspapers and the Internet

The main effect is only to inform mass about the unit's recruitment plan. This method
is rarely used by FPT, because of its effectiveness and hostility to the corporate
recruitment room

 FPT candidates data

Candidate data from the test rounds are also used for recruitment. Part of this data
comes from qualified candidates, but because the previous test did not achieve good
results. The use of internal candidate data confirms that FPT telecome is more
interested in workers
Stage 2: Select candidates

 Step 1: Select the application

The company proposes a sample profile, the candidates can present it on the
profile or create their own records based on the necessary information required by the
recruitment department (through a sample file). Candidate profiles can be sent to
businesses through free applications, applications in employment-related programs
(job fairs, career seminars, etc.)
Candidates' records are transferred to the relevant human resources department.
After that, the HR department gathered enough necessary documents, ensured the rate
of selection through the rounds, sent the notice to the general company to conduct the
examination, and contacted the candidate to inform. about the exam schedule.
Disqualified applications are those that do not have the necessary information, or do
not provide evidence that the candidate is passionate about the relevant position at
FPT. In this step, usually only 5-10% of the candidates are eliminated because the
issue of the file does not meet the demand

 Step 2: Test basic knowledge

Due to the specific requirements of the working groups, the candidates will
undergo different tests. Particularly, the group operates mainly in the field of
Information Technology, so candidates will often go through 3 exams: IQ + GMAT +
TOEIC. Some positions such as Marketing, Sales, .... will take the EQ + GMAT +


TOEIC subjects. The score will also be set by each unit, usually 50% of the exam /
subject score for FPT General, and the member companies will take this point as the
base to determine the test score for each position, each application. your taste. The
results of this round will assess whether the candidate needs to learn, have basic
knowledge to serve the job or not

 Step 3: The interview round

After the candidate goes through the round of basic knowledge, the candidate
will participate in the interview round. In this interview, the candidate will go through
two interviews (in some cases, these two interviews will be combined as one): an
interview of professional knowledge, personality and an interview. advice on business
engagement and appropriate remuneration mechanisms
The first interview will involve the head of the department who wants to recruit
with a staff. The form of recruitment will be varied, usually a pre-prepared interview
form asked by the head of the design department. During the interview process, HR
staff try to keep the atmosphere friendly and open and exchange with candidates about
the company and the current issues of the company. The end result is the unity of the
unit head and personnel, in which the head of the unit plays a key role
The interview about the remuneration mechanism is applied when the applicant
is accepted through a professional interview. In this interview, the staff in charge of
personnel and head (or vice) of the unit will talk to the candidate about career
opportunities about the job orientation and about the remuneration mechanisms that
the candidate receives if participating. join the company. Candidates, especially young
and skilled candidates, often have many different plans, including comparing the
compensation between job opportunities, ... exchanges. To be frank, will help HR and
department representatives identify the candidate's ability to stick, thereby assessing
the success of the recruitment. During the exchange, interviewers will talk frankly
about current issues, remuneration of enterprises; some experienced interviewers can
also advise young candidates about career opportunities, and give them expensive
advice. In case the candidate is not suitable for the business, or does not want to stick
with the business, the recruitment of new staff will be prepared


 Step 4: Complete the request for records

After the applicant goes through the rounds, the candidate will complete the
requirements for the record. The file includes: Medical examination card, curriculum
vitae and relevant qualifications. This stage only plays a minor role in the evaluation
of candidates
A health examination card is used, to ensure that candidates are not deformed,
and do not encounter obstacles in the process of performing the job. For normal jobs,
health checks can be certified from any hospital; Some specific jobs, candidates will
have to go to the health check at the hospitals designated by the company, or the
company will invite doctors to check in at the company. Other records for the
management process, including curriculum vitae, notarized copies, diplomas,....
These records will then be transferred to the Organization and Human
Resource Management Department to facilitate staff monitoring and evaluation

 Step 5: Signing a probationary contract

After the applicant completes the remaining requirements, the candidate is

asked to sign a 2-month probation contract with the company (or apprentice for 6
months without a university, college, ...). Basically, this period is also the training
period of the employees - in this period, the candidates will participate in different
projects, under the support of the direct staff

4.4.2. Recruitment process for senior officials

The process of recruiting high-level cadres, at FPT, is the "Process of Sage"

Stage 1: Recruitment
Based on the need to expand the group's operations, as well as the shortage of
leading officials, in certain positions, the head of the HR department plans to recruit.
However, due to the characteristics of high-level staff recruitment, recruitment
measures will have certain differences for the method of recruiting ordinary
employees. Three sources of candidates are interested in the recruitment notification


• Internal candidates: through the introduction of reputable staff, the recruitment

department will approach highly valued staff, discuss with them about new job
• Head-hunting candidates: through outside businesses, through candidates'
information leaving old businesses,…. HR staff will contact the candidate, and
propose new job opportunities
• Candidates from Candidate Data in previous vacancies
End the recruitment phase when the recruitment department ensures the minimum
selection rate is maintained (3 candidates get 1 position)
Stage 2: Selecting

 Step 1: Browse candidate profile

After contacting the candidate and receiving the application for the candidate,
the recruitment officer will coordinate with the directors, the full-time staff, to study
the candidate file. In this process, the candidate information, including experience,
participation events, accumulated skills, will be analyzed carefully. Important
information is carefully marked, serving the interview phase later
Normally, after reviewing the application, the directors will mark important
information, and then the recruitment officer will participate in the verification of the
information. Verification is primarily through telephone exchange with the candidate's
previous officer. The information obtained will help the candidate process more

 Step 2: Candidates to interview the Council

In this interview, the Interview Council normally has 3 members: Head of the
relevant Human Resources Department, a member of the Board of Directors and
Head/ Deputy Head of the relevant professional department.
The questions are also quite diverse, in addition to general questions about life
and personality,... candidates will continue to experience professional questions, and
knowledge and attachment to the company. Along with that, the candidate will also
participate in some simulation situations. In this exercise, the candidate will have a
certain amount of time to prepare for the answer. The creativity and feasibility of the


candidates 'proposals, as well as the candidates' plans to implement, will be the best
evaluation criteria for candidates. In some other cases, a group interview will take
place, the interview committee will base on the perspective and how the candidate
protects his or her views against other opinions, to assess the candidate's personality.
The strongest point in the group interview is that the candidates are naturally exposed
to their opinions, exchanged frankly with each other; and reflect most honestly their
value through group interaction

 Step 3: Candidates prepare documents and return to the High-level Human

Resources Department

After the candidate passes the interview, the candidate will complete the
remaining procedures of the application, before moving on to the probationary phase.
Records include health checks, curriculum vitae, relevant qualifications and
certifications of units previously worked. This stage is not different from the Profile
period for recruiting ordinary employees.

 Step 4: Candidates participate in a 2-month trial period

The probationary period (or challenge) is a mandatory stage in assessing

candidates, especially for high-level officials. Going through a challenging period
(usually lasting 2 months), these candidates will appreciate quite deeply about the
business, they also identify their learning and promotion opportunities, and can decide
to stick longer or find opportunities at other units. During this period, candidates are in
charge of 5-10 projects at many levels. Candidates through lower-level human
resources, carry out the project and report the results
For the evaluation of senior officials, it will be done through a comprehensive
assessment (at FPT is Evaluation 3600). In this assessment, the direct officer, the
senior staff and the lower level staff closest to the candidate, will contribute their
opinions. The synthesis of this opinion, will help make a final assessment of the
candidate. In case the candidate meets the requirements for equivalent positions, the
official contract will be signed and the candidate becomes a full-time employee of the
company, enjoying the full remuneration for senior officials
