Vietnam Recruitment Testimonials
I am impressed with the communication, follow up, responses, as well as information shared. The team submitted a comprehensive report about their search, including all the positive, negative information/feedback from candidates so that we know where we are in the labour market. This is important to not only us, but for any recruiter to define the right package/strategy to attract talents, who nowadays is the most asset of a corporation. I would continue working with Monroe to build up our workforce.
