International companies face unique expansion challenges in Asia

In the past few years, Asian markets have undergone remarkable transformations. Once known for little more than extensive agriculture, manufacturing, and – later – e-commerce, Asia nowadays is increasingly known for its booming energy, finance, insurance, water, agriculture, and luxury goods industries, among other high growth areas. Accordingly, both the demand for consulting on market entry in Asia and the demand for high performing executives and managers has mounted.

That said, recruiting top talent in Asia is not a straightforward task for most international companies. The candidates are certainly out there, but locating and assessing them when there is so much local competition among businesses is a real challenge. Companies are fighting to come up with new and exciting ways not only to attract talent in the first place, but to keep it for years to come.

It is not all bad news, though. The educational sector across Asia has improved immensely in recent decades, meaning that Asian candidates today are among some of the most qualified in the world. Degree and training programs in Asia rival elite schools in the US, Canada, Australia, and western Europe. Indeed, in addition to producing native talent, Asia is also experiencing a diversification of it. The number of Asian students going abroad as part of their education has doubled since 2010, which means that it is now possible to find highly educated Asian candidates that have international connections and exposure to global business.

These factors alone make Asia a hotbed of executive and management talent with incredible potential. At Sky Executive, we can help businesses both within and outside of Asia access this remarkable pool of candidates.

What Sets Sky Executive Apart?

Our Experience

The multicultural team at Sky Executive has accumulated over 80 years of experience in hiring top executive and management talent in Asia. Our network of local and international recruitment experts means we can access the right talent for your business, no matter where you come from and no matter what your ultimate business goals. What is more, we have experience in a number of traditional and new industries, including: energy, agriculture, computing, automobiles, supply chain, manufacturing, software (AI), biotech, medicine, and food and beverage.

Six Month Placement Guarantee

Not all recruitment agencies are created equally, and one of the main reasons that we continue to attract major mid-tier and Fortune 500 clients is because we offer a six month guarantee on our placements. Six months far exceeds the industry standard guarantee, and it enables our clients to feel confident in their new hires and reduce turnover costs.

Combined Recruitment and Employer of Record (EOR) Package

Finding the right person for a role is never the last step in the recruitment process. New hires need to have their responsibilities, salary, benefits, and working arrangements negotiated as well as their career progression planned carefully to ensure that the investment made in each individual is one that lasts for years. We have an exclusive recruitment package that we can combine with our role as an Employer of Record (EOR) (also known as a professional employer organization (PEO)), meaning that if you want to hire in Asia but do not want the burden of setting up a new entity, the traditional costs of employment, or the complications of employing within your existing foreign business, we can do it all on your behalf.

Extensive HR Experience

Our team consists of highly experienced experts who can assist with all aspects of employment, so whenever we find the right candidate we can immediately help to get them established in their new role. We can produce offer letters, negotiate packages, draft contracts, execute onboarding, and work with the executive team to assess and develop talent as the new hire settles into life at the company. We are also able to assist with contract renewal or termination, and can efficiently replace any talent if necessary.

A Local Presence in Asia

To recruit effectively in Asia requires global understanding with a local presence. Understanding the importance of this for our clients, we have established our own Asian offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Singapore, and European offices in Berlin and Milan. Our company headquarters are mere minutes away from Shanghai’s main business and financial districts. This simultaneous global and local presence helps us to develop lucrative relationships with partners on our clients’ behalf, in Asia and beyond.

Clear and Efficient Recruitment Methodology

At Sky Executive, we have spent years honing our recruitment methodology so that we can deliver optimal candidates and ROI to our clients. We share this innovative recruitment methodology with our clients from Day One, which means that executive teams are kept in the loop as we take on the important responsibility of hiring new staff for the company. We understand that we hold our clients’ brands and reputations in our hands, and we make sure that we take excellent care of them in our dealings with internal and external stakeholders.
