Given the critical role mid-level managers play in facilitating a team’s growth, it is much expected they will possess a certain set of skill sets to lead the team. However, that’s not always the case.

As revealed in a 2019 report, there is one top skill managers still lack today – team-building, according to more than a quarter of employees surveyed.In fact, despite some managers being rated ‘good’ or ‘world-class’ by their employees, this skill still came up as one of the critical skills they lacked.

In line with findings such as this, it becomes all the more imperative for organisations to source and select the right mid-level staff.

At the HR Vendors of the Year 2019Malaysia and Singapore, we dedicate the Best Mid-Management Recruitment Firm category to recruitment firms that scour the landscape to find mid-level talent for their clients, be it in the form of specialised individual contributors, team leaders, or managers.
