The People at Work

Armed with the conviction that executive search should be about helping people, The People At Work was founded on Feb 11, 2000.

We have since grown into a regional group with search expertise across a number of industries: consumer goods, e-commerce, healthcare, real estate, hospitality, automotive, heavy industry and private equity/venture capital.

Our work has brought us all over Asia including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, India, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea and Japan; and even Mongolia.

We like to go the extra mile for our clients – on a multi-country search for a forensic audit specialist or an intensive search for that elusive Nuclear Engineering talent.

We are comfortable interacting across different cultures, keep our minds open to ideas and are always learning and gaining new insights from the many different people and companies we meet.

Asia Experts

Because our clients’ presence and coverage extends beyond local markets, we have grown our footprint across Asia since 2000. From our first office in Singapore, we have planted boots on the ground in Shanghai, Manila and Kuala Lumpur. Our local teams in these cities help us stay close to market trends and developments on the ground. Whether you are making a foray into Asia, expanding operations into new markets, or building the next generation of leaders, we can work with you to find and develop the talents to support your business growth.

Boutique with a Global Reach

Our international affiliations allow us to access cross border, intercultural perspectives and market intelligence through our business partners in other regions. Clients based in Asia are able to leverage on our global connections as they expand their business beyond Asia, while organisations coming into Asia can be assured that we apply best practices benchmarked to global performance standards.

No Conflict of Interest

By working with only a select number of clients in any one sector, we ensure that we have a clear mandate to identify and approach the best talents in the market without breaching any conflict of interest.

We are ONE

Wherever you may be, the consultant you work with can assist with your needs across Asia as he/she will be supported by our teams across Asia who work seamlessly to provide useful market insights and counsel. While you focus on your business, you can be assured that we have your back and our attention to your talent needs is dependable, objective and trustworthy.
