As market boundaries blur and firms try to cope with increasingly diverse workplaces, the question of senior leadership has to be raised. And matching these senior candidates to employers is the role of the winners and finalists for Best Recruitment Firms (for senior management roles - over US$10k per month).

Awarded gold at 2017's HR Vendors of the Year in Singapore was Manpower Group Singapore, while in the Malaysia edition of the awards, Bo Le Associates took home the top prize.

The HR Vendors of the Year awards, organised by Human Resources, is a long-running annual report that recognises the best solution providers in Asia – Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.

In the 12th edition of the research, all winners were ranked based on a two-tier selection process – an online survey amongst a selected database of HR professionals, followed by submissions by finalists detailing their prowess for a panel of more than 50 senior HR leaders.
