Our Customer Service Principles

Empathy means listening and understanding our clients', employees' and our local partners’ needs by putting myself in their shoes.

- Wee Yen, Our Finance Manager

Responsiveness means responding clearly, directly and quickly to let them know we are paying attention and someone cares. This is important to me as it cultivates trust, rapport and a better relationship with clients, local partners and our employees.

- Carlo, Our Assistant Finance Manager

I see accountability as a way to show integrity and discipline; that you take pride in your work while valuing trust above all else.

- Jacky, Our Operations Analyst

Transparency is to be open and honest with clients, providing them with as much detail as possible for them to be able to make the best decisions for their organisation

- Sujah, Our Digital Marketing Manager

Clarity to me is to be able to explain even complex issues in a simple way that any person can easily understand, even if it’s not necessarily his or her area of expertise

- Svetlana, Our HR Consultant for Global Mobility Projects

I view expertise as the ability to solve problems. You don’t need to know everything as long as you know how to find answers.

- Tim, Our Co-Founder
