Late last month, FOREFRONT Group announced its growth plans, in line with the group's new tech venture - FOUN, a tech ecosystem that streamlines the home-seeking and home-providing journey.
In a press release, Darien Mah, founder of FOREFRONT Group, noted that the growth plan is also in line with its ongoing efforts to ramp up productivity and talent mix diversification.
Mah said: "It’s time that we open up the windows of opportunity and embrace an upward change in the new year, hence we still seek to grow our talent pool even during such extraordinary times. As a creative agency, I think challenges and changes are something we receive very well. We can show the strength of our team and how we can adapt into different scenarios."
On the back of the announcement, Human Resources Online spoke to Darien Mah, Founder of FOREFRONT Group on the positions the firm is hiring for, what determines a good candidate fit, and what the launch of FOUN means for existing employees.
