The en world group, a recruiting agency serving mid-career professionals in the Asia-Pacific region, announced that Top Talent Asia, an executive search firm based in Thailand, has officially joined en world group.
No details, financial or otherwise, relating to the agreement were disclosed.
Top Talent Asia, established in Bangkok in 2003, has a similar business model to that of en world, specialising in helping mid-career professionals make career moves into multinational companies. By joining the en world group, Top Talent Asia will expand on its existing strengths to encompass multinational companies. In addition, it will allow them to offer services to Japan-affiliated global companies by working with other en world offices that support recruiting projects in the Asia Pacific.
Craig Saphin, President of en world group, said: "[Thai] infrastructure is well in place. In fact, direct investment from overseas approximately doubled in 2012 compared with 2011. However, we anticipate even more investment from global companies in the future, thanks to unemployment that is low by global standards, and solid GDP growth. We also expect that the country will continue its transition from a labour-dependent economy that relies on a low cost workforce, to one based on knowledge and technology. Based on this situation, we believe that demand for mid- and high-level professionals will increase further."
Carl Denny, Founder of Top Talent Asia, said, "We have grown our business for many years based on our strength in introducing mid- and high-level personnel to multinational companies. By joining en world, we will build on these successes and further expand services for more companies, including Japan-affiliated businesses."
