Abstract:

This paper uses the General Statistics Office (GSO) labour force survey data and the information and communication technology (ICT) index to study the decent job of employees in the context of ICT development towards green growth in Vietnam. The results of the logit model show that the decent job rate is still low, only about 27.7% in 2019. The paper proves that the development of ICT has a positive impact on employment opportunities. This impact is not only sustainable but also affects the group of workers who do not have certificates and workers in urban and rural areas. The higher ICT levels the workers have, the higher chances they get a decent job, including old-aged workers. These findings suggest that a job transition from precarious jobs to more sustainable jobs needs to play a huge role in ICT, so workers, managers and businesses themselves need to promote the development and application of ICT to serve administration, production and business activities and increase skills in applying IT in job search and the work of employees.
