HUMAN RESOURCES

Since 1993 we have been running businesses in Myanmar and have developed a thorough understanding of what it takes for candidates to succeed in senior management roles in this frontier market. Our far-reaching and targeted networks are instrumental in approaching the leader(s) you need. What differentiates our retained Executive Search service is the discipline applied throughout the process and the time we invest in exploring the soft sides of a candidate that do not appear on her/his resume.

In such a dynamic market retention is a significant issue facing even the most reputable companies. We have developed solutions adapted to the realities of the workforce in Myanmar to assist our clients in creating a sense of ownership and emotional bond between their staff and the Company in order to achieve the much-coveted "Best Employer" status in Myanmar.

SOCIAL IMPACT/ COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

50 years of isolation from the international community meant Myanmar has developed its own way of doing things – often having not kept up with international standards and practices. As Myanmar now emerges from that isolation many adjustments are required - and the way the business community has traditionally engaged local communities is no exception. Our Social Impact practice with its deep knowledge of local processes at the grassroots level has assisted many foreign and local companies to establish a harmonious and peaceful environment around their new business activities.
