Progression was absolutely an amazing business partner when we looked to starting up operations in Singapore. I am fully confident that the team spoke to every single viable candidate in the market and was very good at qualifying candidates and did not waste my time interviewing. The folks we ended up hiring were initially skeptical but Josephine was able to convince them of the potential opportunity with us

When Zimbra decided to establish our regional headquarters in Singapore, we were overwhelmed by the immense effort required. We tried various social media channels but were inundated with applications that required further screening. As a tech start up with relatively low media exposure here, Zimbra had to compete with established brands for the same pool of talents, making the task of attracting the right candidate even harder. This led us to Progression. Instead of just asking for a brief to kickstart the search, Josephine insisted on having a face-to-face meeting to find out more about us and what we are really looking for in an ideal hire. She actually spent quite a bit of time talking to every single member in our team. Throughout the process, we have been impressed by the professionalism and quality of candidates presented. It is this personal approach that differentiates Progression from many other agencies in the market. By listening, showing interest in our issues and asking insightful questions, they have provided us an experience in what is truly like to work with a trusted advisor.

Josephine is an extremely hardworking and dedicated professional who takes the time to understand our business and culture before approaching the market for talent. She is thorough, responsive and quick to adapt to the ever changing IT landscape. Progression has placed quite a number of roles for Citrix over the years and I have no hesitation in recommending Progression as a valuable business partner to anyone seeking to hire in this industry.

Suyie, I wanted to thank you for all your efforts in helping TSS. It’s been a real pleasure working with you. We’ve worked with recruiters and headhunters in the past and have rarely come across someone whom we can connect so well with. You have made a difference because you do not just give us names to fill the roles but you really listened to what we needed as a company and as a business in order to profile the right candidates for the job. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends and business contacts.

Josephine has consistently put in effort to follow up with me and the recruiting company. Further, her insights of the hiring company – whether it is people connections, organisation structure or company direction, are very helpful for a candidate to confidently prepare for the interviews. What amazes me is the company’s high regard for her opinion which proves the effort she has invested. On top of that, she is pleasant and professional to work with and I really appreciate her help in getting my dream job, to which it would have been difficult without her.
