WHY RETAINING VALUABLE TALENT IS DIFFICULT FOR MYANMAR COMPANIES

According to Daw Thuzar Win, director of Alpha Power Engineering Company, businesses in Myanmar face a myriad of challenges, one of which is the lack of skilled employees.In Myanmar, those with skills or experience in sales and marketing, accounting and finance, information technology, HR management and engineering are hot in demand.Yet, employees who possess those skills are in short supply. One reason is employers’ reluctance to invest in the learning and development (L&D) of their workforce. This mindset is pervasive particularly in local firms. It is also common for employees to take the skills they’ve learnt from one firm to another.Good employee benefits are also important in retaining talent. For this, local companies must develop strong HR functions. In Myanmar, HR personnel are usually employed to carry out administrative tasks involving payroll and attendance. Many local employers have yet to realise the importance of HR in developing comprehensive benefits to reward and retain deserving employees.Currently, the majority of job seekers are looking for roles in foreign firms because they appear more professional and pay more.
