Global recruitment firm PageGroup’s Singapore business came first in the list of Preferred Recruitment Firms for roles recruiting S$5,000 to S$10,000 and roles over S$10,000. The company also has been named a Top 10 Preferred Recruitment Firm in the HR Vendors of the Year 2012, placing second in the list.
The award win reflects PageGroup’s success in placing mid and high level professionals and building strong relationships within the industry. In addition, with talent acquisition remaining one of the biggest challenges for companies during 2012, the PageGroup Singapore business has been focused on providing clients with the best service from junior to senior executive level hiring, training and development and staff retention.
Jerome Bouin, Managing Director of PageGroup, Singapore, commented; “Aside from a stronger focus on hiring, retention and succession planning, 2012 witnessed an increased emphasis for professionals to possess commercial acumen and to act as a trusted advisor to the business.”
“The PageGroup model of multi specialists providing service at all levels of recruitment allows our clients and candidates to get the best results from working with only one firm. We have also increased the diversification of our business to include new disciplines and are recruiting internally for junior through to senior level positions to build the business with talented people,” Mr. Bouin added.
Over the last 2 years PageGroup demonstrated its commitment to operating in the Asia region and focused on expanding its presence in South East Asia, with the launch of its Malaysia and Thailand businesses.
About HR Vendors of the Year and the survey:
- HR Vendors of the Year is awarded based on an annual survey conducted on HR professionals in Singapore in conjunction with Human Resources Magazine. The survey respondents were mostly HR practitioners from various industries with nearly 80% of them holding at least managerial roles from small and medium-sized organisations to MNCs.
- For the past seven years, Human Resources’ sister research firm, Lighthouse Research, has conducted an annual survey of the HR community on the companies they would most likely engage in the key areas of HR services. For each area of HR services, respondents were asked to type in the name of the company they would use – no drop-downs, no prompting.
- In 2012, a total of 1,191 HR practitioners from across all industries participated in the survey. All respondents were manager, director, VP or GM level which means the results of the survey are the true reflection of senior HR professional sentiment.
