Readers' Choice Awards: Best Recruitment Firm - Local

Of the three Readers' Choice Awards won by People Advantage on September 8, this prize for local recruitment was the sweetest.

Even in open and cosmopolitan Singapore, local-level recruitment is an important segment of the sourcing market.  As might be expected, it is also the segment with the most number of players and some of the fiercest competitors.

For People Advantage, winner of three Readers’ Choice Awards in 2017, including the prized Best Recruitment Firm – Local accolade, this is exactly the challenge it thrives upon, with superior customer service the secret weapon in its arsenal.

“Well, for starters, we strongly advocate customer engagement,” said Michelle Tai, Senior Manager of Talent Link with People Advantage (pictured), when asked what contributed to the hat-trick win. This involves regularly checking in with clients and candidates (both those successfully placed and those not) and gaining their feedback on how People Advantage can improve even further.

Tai says that while the company was extremely proud to win all three Readers’ Choice Awards, the Best Recruitment Firm – Local category was particularly important.

“Winning the ‘Best Recruitment Firm – Local’ award is extra special to us,” she said. “It is an amazing achievement to be recognised amongst the other established and budding players in the local industry.”

Tai also took a moment to thank the awards organisers. “We’re very grateful to HRM Asia for providing this platform to acknowledge great recruitment companies,” she said.


HRM Asia's Readers' Choice Awards were presented on September 8. All of the winners will be unveiled in the special Readers' Choice Awards forum.
