Executive Search

Finding the best executive talent for your organisation can be challenging. We’re here to make it easier.

The People at Work provides executive search for senior management roles. Covering key sectors such as Healthcare, Consumer & Lifestyle, Industrial & Automotive and Private Equity, we identify top talents in the market to ensure the best fit for your organisation.    

Companies who believe talents to be core to their business growth and continuity, have high expectations of their business leaders, and will appreciate that deploying executive search is an important step towards uncovering the best talents.   And appointing the right search partner is crucial to this success.  At TPAW, we approach and probe every search mandate in a thoughtful and open-minded way.  We ask questions to understand your organisation’s culture and environment, structure, key people, success factors, business objectives and major expectations of this position and candidate so that we can build the right search strategy.   

We conduct thorough market and competitive research and develop a detailed mapping of relevant talent pools and potential talents.  Aside from qualifications and known skills, we delve deeper to understand the motivations and aspirations of these talents to make a successful match for both parties.  Candidates are assessed through a series of interviews, market references, and, where requested, psychometric tests.  With inputs and feedback sought from clients at different stages of the search process, clients enjoy peace of mind that best efforts are put into meeting their requirements and that only the best candidates are presented to them in the end.  A crucial ingredient is that for these shortlisted candidates, the client’s organisation and opportunity is also a great fit for them too.  Success is a 2-way street. 

Our promise doesn’t end there.  We continue to support our clients and candidates even after onboarding of the new hire.  Should executive coaching or further leadership development be later required to prepare candidates for the next step in their career, we are here to recommend the best solutions. 

Continued engagement ensures greater satisfaction and high rate of successful outcome for our clients and candidates.  


Leadership Development & Succession Planning

Ensuring the next generation leadership is ready

Leadership Development and Succession Planning are two interconnected strategic initiatives to pursue one primary goal, and that is, preparing leaders and the organization to be future-ready.  

Leadership Development helps organizations expand the capacity of individuals excelling in leadership roles. In contrast, Succession Planning requires organizations to develop a sense of urgency and proactiveness when it comes to transferring leadership roles. By marrying the benefits of both, organizations enjoy the best of both worlds, bringing the best profiles to their best-suited roles, all the while, keeping in mind an organization’s long-term goals.  

Organizations encounter challenges that constantly reshape the business outlook– emerging technologies, biological threats, pandemics, changes in economic flows, demographic shifts, the explosion of data, radical changes in job skills required and complexity. No matter the change, organizations depend on their leaders to craft the correct responses and build a company’s resilience to emerge stronger.  

Continually reviewing and developing the right leadership competencies of executives is necessary and vital for all organizations to thrive in dynamic environments. An effective succession planning process ensures that the organization prepares the right talent for the proper role in the leadership pipeline for long-term health, growth and sustainability.  


Board Advisory

Strengthening the leadership of your organization

As businesses confront new challenges in an increasingly borderless, digital world, boards are forced to deal with a myriad of issues in diversity, governance, shareholder activism, cybersecurity, drive for greater sustainability and digital transformation. Can companies afford to maintain the status quo of boards which have not kept up with these market changes?

Forces of change include a global march toward greater accountability of boards in Environment, Social and Governance standards, which will compel businesses and non-profit organisations alike, to review board composition, selection processes and board engagement. More than ever, shareholders and other stakeholders are questioning if their Board members have the necessary skills and expertise to navigate the new challenges.

Board renewals should therefore take into consideration their changing roles and accountabilities to shareholders. We can provide assessment of your existing board, or help in recruiting board members with specific competencies to help your Board increase its effectiveness and capability.
