Michael Page International PTE Limited (“PageGroup”) has a rich history dating back to its establishment in the United Kingdom in 1976. The company is currently listed on the London Stock Exchange as PageGroup plc, holding the prestigious status of an FTSE 250 company. Over the years, PageGroup has solidified its position as the world’s largest permanent recruitment company, boasting a remarkable track record and a deep-rooted commitment to the professional success of its customers, candidates, and employees.
With over three decades of experience in the Asia Pacific market, PageGroup has developed extensive networks in numerous countries, including Australia, Greater China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
PageGroup’s approach is distinctly people-centric, and this ethos extends far beyond the professional realm. With over 8,100 dedicated employees spread across these 37 countries, the organization aspires not only to be a leading specialist recruiter but also to set new standards for how recruitment operations should be conducted. The company places a strong emphasis on people and teamwork, a culture that it takes great pride in. PageGroup’s reputation shines as an inclusive employer and an ethical recruiter, where values are more than just words—they are deeply ingrained in the everyday actions and decisions that set PageGroup apart from its competitors.
One of PageGroup’s standout achievements is its unwavering commitment to building a sustainable and ethical business over its 40-year history. The company doesn’t view itself merely as a corporate entity but as a responsible member of society, deeply concerned about environmental sustainability and community well-being. PageGroup’s role as a recruiter carries immense influence, and the company recognizes this by actively championing diversity and inclusion in all its forms, promoting equity, and advocating ethical processes and behaviors that resonate with its customer base and society as a whole.
PageGroup’s commitment to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace is one of its paramount objectives. The company endeavors to lead the industry in providing an environment where all employees can not only thrive but also reach their full potential. This commitment begins at the top echelons of the company, where a global senior leadership team ensures that diverse thinking is respected, heard, and applied.
Cultural transformation, initiated from senior management, permeates throughout the organization, creating an inclusive leadership mindset and a shared sense of accountability. PageGroup actively fosters a psychologically safe environment, where non-inclusive behaviors are addressed with zero tolerance. The company passionately strives to create sustainable and scalable behavior change, with a specific focus on enhancing retention, increasing access to diverse talent pools, reducing biases in all forms, and promoting fairness, transparency, and equity, especially in promotions. This concerted effort results in the cultivation of an inclusive recruitment culture that benefits both employees and customers.
PageGroup’s culture of inclusion is not limited to its internal environment; it also extends to the manner in which it conducts business. PageGroup has invested significant effort to establish a culture of trust and compassion where each individual feels valued, has a voice, belongs to the community, feels comfortable being themselves, and can thrive personally and professionally.
In addition to its inclusive culture and diversity and inclusion initiatives, PageGroup maintains a stringent Employee Code of Conduct. This code ensures that PageGroup conducts business not just to comply with laws and regulations but to lead by example in interactions with colleagues, candidates, clients, business partners, and investors. It serves as a moral compass, providing clarity on what is right and appropriate, and it helps maintain trust and respect within the organization and with its stakeholders. Violating this code can result in legal consequences, reputational damage, and disciplinary action.
