The Professional Who Fits Well In Our Firm:

  • Works hard to become an expert (includes reading/attending programmes/working with coaches)
  • Mixes easily with people of diverse backgrounds
  • Is resourceful (i.e. does not need high maintenance)
  • Does not need much supervision

Some Of Our People-Centred Practices

  • 5-day week with flexi-time and work-from-home options. We also have 'reduced-hours full-timers' for staff who cannot commit to a 40-hour week.
  • No medical certificate is required for short-duration sick leave.
  • Types of leave: Annual, maternity, paternity, community service, spiritual retreat and study leave. Most of such leave is self-determined.
  • Office attire is smart casual.
  • Everyone on first-name basis.
  • Open-book policy: All finances are disclosed, including salaries.
  • Whenever possible, re-design jobs to fit a person's talents and professional goals.
  • We decline work with certain industries and allow trainers to decline work on grounds of personal conscience. (Look at our client list to see if you're comfortable working with most of them.)

Some Complaints We Have Heard About Our Practices And Policies

  • During crunch times the work-week might stretch to 50 hours or more, resulting in late nights or lost weekends. This can happen several times each quarter.
  • New hires sometimes have lots of ideas on how to change things, but many of these are deemed unsuitable by senior management. It can be frustrating.
  • Our trainers sometimes have to travel on weekends. Even though such travel is compensated with additional Annual Leave, it can be disruptive to personal weekend commitments.


Learning & Development Specialists

We hire aspiring specialists who are willing to study and facilitate a range of training programmes, find their area of passion, and then craft that passion into international-level expertise. This process typically takes several years and it is not for everyone.

Applying To Join Us

Because international work is demanding, our hiring process for Learning & Development specialists usually includes the following phases:

  • Application Form
  • Group Interview/Workshop Attendance
  • Individual Interview (may include Aptitude Test/s for Writing, Comprehension, and Conceptualising)
  • Psychometric tests
  • Trainer Demonstration (may require self-study)
  • Final Interview

For other positions, the hiring process is less stringent.
