It is no secret that economies in Asia are among the fastest growing the world has ever seen, and this is a reflection of the region’s important contribution to global business and market development. For this reason, access to a qualified and skilled pool of candidates is the foremost priority of business leaders.

The heightened competition for talent in Asia means HR professionals have their work cut out for them, and often require the support of a capable recruiting partner.

Being recognised as a leading recruitment firm in one area is one thing, but demonstrating leadership in all areas of recruitment takes a very special organisation. At both the HR Vendors of the Year awards 2016 in Singapore, and HR Vendors of the Year awards 2016 in Malaysia, ManpowerGroup won the award for Best Overall Recruitment Firm.

In the 11th year of the research, all winners were determined on a two-tier selection process. First, the finalists were identified through an extensive online survey of HR managers in Asia on their preferences.

These finalists then submitted documentation to verify their credentials, which was validated by a panel of more than 50 HR leaders from some of the region’s largest employers.

The winner of this category, ManpowerGroup, was found by the jury to best match the right candidates, regardless of age or experience, with the right roles in the right organisations across the entire recruitment and talent acquisition spectrum.
