So far, what’s the benefit of hiring Asian workers for Hungary companies?

Fast Recruitment

 

CATERPILLAR recruited and skill tested a GROUP of 50 skilled welders in 02 days. While other Hungarian corps recruit ONE BY ONE in MONTHS via local channels.

 

High loyalty of workers

 

Vietnamese workers are sponsored visas by CATERPILLAR. That means they MUST finish the contract signed with CAT, or repatriate. They are not allowed to leave the company or move to another country within SCHENGEN, as locals.

 

Lower Salary than Locals. More working hours.

 

Asian workers always ask for overtime job. While Europeans only work 8 hours/day, 5 days/week.

 

Less Responsibilities for The Employer

 

With a local agency involves in many steps (finding candidates, organizing a skill test, asking for visa, etc.), the Employer only takes charge of inspecting, giving last result of selected candidates in the trade test, asking work permit and picking up workers when they arrive in Hungary.

 

It’s a CHOICE proven by a FORTUNE 500 Company.

 

 

But don’t forget 3 BIG BARRIERS: SKILL, COMMUNICATION and VISA, which relates to law issues.

Even though it’s LEGAL to hire Vietnamese workers to Hungary, this is still not a famous choice of local companies, due to lack of information and consulting.

But in the context of labor shortage in the country, recruiting Asian workers really worth a find out.

Now, let’s dive in a Practical Case Study of CATERPILLAR HUNGARY, in cooperation with VIETNAM MANPOWER AGENCY.

  1. FURTHER TRAINING FOR SELECTED WORKERS (TO BE UPDATED)
  2. VISA AND WORK PERMIT (TO BE UPDATED)
  3. WORKER DEPARTURE (TO BE UPDATED)
  4. WORKER DAILY LIFE AND JOB IN HUNGARY (TO BE UPDATED)
  5. TERMINATION OF CONTRACT (TO BE UPDATED)

 

CONTRACT SIGNING – PREPARATION PROCESS

 

There are two types of Contract: Labor Supply Contract (between Employer and Agency) & Worker Contract (between The Employer and Individual Worker).

We build the contract based on a DEMAND LETTER. Click to see the template.

Demand Letter is the first agreement between two parties on: worker category, quantity, basic salary and interests of worker.

In most cases that we experienced, European companies (we have from Poland, Hungary and Romania) find no difficulties in dealing for above terms. Those are compliant with Labor Law of Employer’s country. Also, Asian workers require less salary and benefits than Europeans.

For those reasons, Caterpillar and came to an agreement in very short time, since the positions CAT required were not hard for us to gather candidates.

No.

However, this order is for Europe Market, which has very strict requirements to grant visa and work permit for Asians. Therefore, we must be careful in the process of gathering candidates.

They must be fit to criteria below:

  1. Age: 18-40. No crime criminal.
  2. Possess High School Diploma
  3. Possess Skill Certifications
  4. Pass a Health Check
  5. Have at least 03 years working experience

 

We have sent the recruitment notices to the following groups, in order of preferences:

+ Vietnamese welders having experience abroad

+ Vietnamese welders having experience working for local company

+ Vietnamese welders having diplomas and certificates from vocational schools

 

Candidates who are interested may to register for a preliminary testing: workmanship, personal identification, health check, qualifications and certificates. Only those who pass ALL criteria will be eligible to join in the skill test.

 

Within 14 days, we have gathered 80 high-quality welders and 5 foremen for the trade test.
