Challenges of recruiting “Top 1” candidates from a PRIMUS perspective

According to PRIMUS survey and intensive interview of employers and candidates, 65% of high-level candidates said that there is no dedicated recruitment portal for them. 61% said they had made at least one bad decision when choosing a job. More than 60% of them said they quit their jobs because of their line managers. Most candidates in this segment are afraid of publishing their profiles on job search websites because they don’t want to be frequently “hunted” by recruitment consultants with inappropriate vacancies.

Mr. Gaku Echizenya, CEO of Navigos Group, said: “PRIMUS is the first dedicated career platform for “top 1” candidates in Vietnam. We aim to build a better labor market through our vision “Success after Joining”. Due to our observation, “top 1” candidates could make a huge impact on the employees and also the leader’s team. If they choose the wrong jobs frequently, somehow it effects on trust and engagement rate of the company and entire market. In further, once they could change perception of their staffs and line managers, they would change the insight of entire Vietnamese market as well. In the near future, we plan to apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyze the suitability between candidates and line managers for each job posted on PRIMUS. As a result, “top 1” candidates will have the opportunity to understand full of information of the company including leadership and corporate culture before accepting a job offer. What we do is to give “top 1” candidates and employers the most appropriate options for success after joining so that candidates can develops their career and contribute long-term values to the organizations”.

PRIMUS has been very well received among high level professionals, employers and recruitment companies. Currently, we are having more than 4,000 high-level candidates, 5 verified recruitment agencies and 35 recruitment consultants. Regarding vacancies, we have about 200 vacancies with a minimum salary of $3,000, of which 60% are at a director level, and 90% of the positions are provided with full information.
