Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

Read below for fast information about Chalre Associates: 

 


Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  What is the focus of your firm?

"Everyone knows that "respectable" Executive Search firms focus their services on the "Big 5" regional centers in Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sydney and Shanghai).  This is where the big searches and the big fees originate. 

Chalre Associates is unique in that it is active in countries that traditional firms are not represented.  Regional Managers are underserved in emerging countries counties like Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.  Senior level recruitment in such countries can be more difficult to undertake since world-class management talent is often less readily available.  As well, there is much greater necessity for comprehensive background confirmation and related activities." 

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  Are your clients mainly multinational companies?

"Yes, our work is predominantly senior engagements for international companies with active businesses in the Asia Pacific region.  Locally-owned companies within emerging countries do not often use Executive Search since they are often family-owned enterprises and usually hire members of their own families or people well known to them.  We are starting to see change as these organizations seek to join the global market.  More and more of the leading family-owned conglomerates are interested to hire world-class talent to run their major business groups.  While this bodes well for the future, we expect the bulk of our work to continue to be with multinational companies." 

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  What is different about recruiting senior managers in emerging countries as opposed to larger commercial centers?

"Recruiting world class managers in any country is challenging.  In emerging countries the process is made more complicated because, in the first place, fewer world-class senior managers have yet been developed.  Secondly, background confirmation can require more time (and discretion) and strong personal relationships need to have been developed ahead of time.  Thirdly, we find we need to remain involved in the placement after it is completed.  And lastly, senior managers in emerging countries are paid less than managers in the Big 5 markets (Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Sydney).  Therefore, executive search fees are lower."  

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  Is retained executive search understood in emerging countries in Asia?

"No, in emerging countries (Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand, for instance) most general personnel staffing agencies call themselves "executive search."  To their credit, many of these firms are ideal for hiring non-management personnel since this is their field of focus.  However, they have little knowledge of senior management requirements of multinational corporations.  In the emerging markets that are our focus, there are very few of what would be called retained executive search firms as the concept is understood in major commercial centers."

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  How pervasive is corruption in emerging markets?

"In the developed world, providing prospective clients with free meals and sports tickets is not considered corruption because the practice is transparent.  In emerging countries, incentives are also provided to acquire business but to a more extreme degree.  Buyers don't just get free trinkets, they get hard cash, overseas trips and even free cars.  Experienced international managers understand the problem and take appropriate action to minimize damage to their organizations. 

Recruitment is one obvious area where there are extra income opportunities available for unscrupulous people.  Unless international managers are wary, the results will be higher recruitment costs and poorer access to qualified candidates.  Company morale will be impacted since not everyone receives a share of the blessings.  

Providing luxurious incentives is expensive and many recruitment firms can't keep up.  This is one reason why a small number of recruitment firms tend to dominate the market in most emerging countries. 

Chalre Associates is one firm that adheres to international standards of professional practice.  We deal predominately with international managers and are transparent in our business practices."   

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  Is the market for management talent a national or regional one in emerging countries?

"The management talent pool in our emerging countries is very much regional.  The major cities (Manila, Jakarta, Bangkok and KL, for instance) dominate their respective national markets.  There are big steps down in economic activity when you move to the secondary cities. 

The situation is somewhat different in the larger emerging power-houses like India and China.  In these countries, there are more primary market cities." 

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  Is it easy to attract top management talent to international companies, or should a foreign investor consider bringing in expatriates?

"Importing expatriates can be necessary if your business is a new concept in an emerging country since local management talent may not yet exist in ample supply.  An expatriate may be the only option if a company is to ensure that a new branch office meets international standards.

That said, expatriates are not considered a good option in the longer term.  Expatriate managers require a lot of time to adapt to a new culture and lack the personal relationships that are important to doing business in Asia.  As well, traditional expatriates are rather expensive to be supported by smaller business revenues in emerging markets.

In the long run, most companies localize their senior management positions.  Asian cultures consider personal relationships to be very important and deep knowledge of a local business culture can only be acquired by those who have grown their careers within it.  Locals or localized expatriates are the best option for most companies.   

(For those who may not be familiar with the term 'localized expatriate,' it means an expatriate who decides to live and work in another country for an extended period.  Such people have decided for their own reasons to live in the host country and have a strong commitment to it.  A typical example would be someone who has decided to live permanently in Philippines -- usually because he has acquired a Filipina wife and genuinely enjoys the country and its people.)" 

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  What advice would you give to a company planning to do a search in an emerging country?

"Partner with a search firm which has established itself in its market areas and can bridge the gap between the local environment and world-class requirements.  It is probably no surprise that our firm recommends itself as perhaps the premier provider of Executive Search services in the emerging countries of the Asia Pacific region." 

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  What is a retained search?

"The process of engaging a retained search firm is similar to hiring an accountant, lawyer, architect or other skilled professional to perform a complex task. Such professionals are "retained" on an exclusive basis and compensated periodically.  Organizations in a wide range of sectors retain us to identify highly qualified candidates for specific senior-level positions.

Retained search (Executive Search) enables you to confidentially explore candidates who would not otherwise be identified by advertisements, job postings, or employment agencies. Retained executive search is a selective recruiting technique that sources candidates through direct means.  In this method, senior candidates are attracted who are happy and successful in their careers and who do not send their resumes to job postings, online databases or personnel staffing agencies."

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  What is contingency staffing?

"In contingency staffing, a recruiting firm is typically used to fill an entry- to mid-level position. The firm operates as a resume promotion service and is paid only if a hire (a sale) is made.  For this reason, contingency firms tend to quickly provide volumes of resumes for such positions.  The results, however, can be unpredictable and inconsistent.

Contingency Staffing (personnel agencies) employ what is called passive recruiting methods to source candidates.  Examples include: job advertisements, career fairs, resume databases of people who are either unemployed or unhappy (and unsuccessful) in their current roles.  Such sources are generally a good choice for filling entry-level, junior and even some intermediate level positions.  However, when a position is senior in nature and critical to the success of an organization, such sources are clearly not adequate."

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  Does your company only do Executive Search?

"While our primary expertise is retained search, we also offer a range of consulting services, including:

  • Outplacement

  • Management Consulting

  • Leadership Assessment

Bullet - Headhunter firm in Asia Pacific - Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos  Can you help me find a job?

"We have a commitment to helping our clients while they are giving us business and after. Someone who has given us business in past can expect to receive unlimited support when their time comes for a job search.  Our clients are clients for life and we are committed to supporting these people in any time of need.

However, we are not able to provide such a time consuming service to the general public without a fee.  Unless you are an outplacement referral, we generally do not find jobs for individuals seeking employment.  Our work is to find people for jobs and not the other way around.  However, we want to know about all senior professionals in the countries we are active and if we become aware of a company that needs a person with your skills, we will contact you."
