More than 6,000 cadres, civil servants, and public employees in Ho Chi Minh City left their jobs at their own will within the first half of this year, averaging out at 1,000 people monthly, the municipal administration has reported.

In an urgent dispatch to the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee said 676 cadres and civil servants and 5,501 public employees resigned between January and June of 2022.

That means around 1,000 staff members gave up their jobs per month on average.

Taking the lead in the resignation were 2,436 staff members of the educational sector, followed by 2,145 employees at heath facilities and the rest in other public non-business units.   

The mass job quitting was driven by three main factors, including wage and remuneration policies, work pressure, and promotion opportunities, local authorities said.

Specifically, the current salary and incentive policies are way too low, failing to secure state employees’ living conditions and hindering them from pursuing their career.

Meanwhile, businesses in the private sector offer very attractive wages, remunerations, and benefits to their staff, attracting a large number of highly qualified personnel from the labor market.

Moreover, work overload has affected many state employees, especially those in the health, educational, and non-business sectors during the previous peaks of the COVID-19 pandemic, local authorities commented.

In order to curb the waves of resignation, the city’s administration has brought forward some practical solutions in the dispatch.

Accordingly, the municipal administration will continue improving their incomes, thereby nurturing their work motivation and encouraging their devotion.

Regarding promotion opportunities, local authorities will renew their staff recruitment mechanism by piloting the organization of public competitions for candidates of managerial positions, transferring staff to match their actual qualifications, and encouraging employees to take early retirement at their own will.     

The city government has also asked the ministry to consult relevant agencies to increase the regular workforce to avoid overwork among employees.
