One of the most globally trusted brands in recruitment, PageGroup, is honoured to celebrate its 20th year in Singapore. The Group launched in Singapore as Michael Page in 1996, its first office in South East Asia. Then, we started by recruiting across four key disciplines.
Over the last two decades, the business grew organically from strength to strength and we now employ more than 100 employees actively recruiting across 12 disciplines. With our varied experience in placements of professionals at the mid- to senior-level positions, the Group diversified from the Michael Page brand to also include Page Executive in 2008. Page Personnel was set up two years later in 2010 to meet the growing demand for secretarial and office support as well as contract work across a range of disciplines.
This allowed us to better focus our recruitment efforts towards targeted candidate pools across all levels of seniority. Today, we are a leading international recruitment group across South East Asia, with offices in Indonesia, Malaysia and soon to be Thailand. Since 1996, we have placed over 15,000 people across the region which has in turn positively influenced careers and nurtured the Asian workforce.
Anthony Thompson, regional managing director, Greater China, South East Asia & India, says, “Establishing the Singapore business was an important milestone for PageGroup as it was the start of our South East Asia presence. With the dedication of every employee through the years, we have established a strong footprint across the region and will continue our legacy of recruitment excellence for decades to come.”
Our continued commitment to deliver on quality and expertise has placed PageGroup at the forefront of specialist recruitment in Singapore. We take great pride in our consultative approach to our clients and candidates. These efforts have been recognised in numerous industry and business awards from “Best Recruitment Agency” to “Most Socially Engaged Recruitment Company”. View awards here.
Equally important to the success of PageGroup is our support towards community causes. This year, we are supporting the Yellow Ribbon Project in Singapore to help ex-offenders assimilate back into society. By running resume and job training workshops, our partnership assists those in the program by helping them find permanent employment.
“We have stood strong for the past 20 years because we value the human asset,” says Sebastien Hampartzoumian, senior managing director, Singapore & India. “We believe that developing an all-rounded workforce with the drive to succeed in both their professional and personal growth has nurtured a highly-engaged group of individuals. I am deeply humbled to be working alongside such talent.”
