KSearch Asia Consulting, Inc., a major executive search and recruitment provider for some of the largest multinational companies operating in the Philippines, including the major players in the BPO industry, and large Philippine conglomerates, will celebrate in October its 11th anniversary. True to its mission statement, KSearch has been consistent throughout in providing its clients with outstanding candidates within the shortest time possible with integrity and utmost respectability in its methods.
Secret to Success
The secret to its success, KSearch’s CEO Manny Guillermo reveals, is its primary strategy to enrich its people through rapid and continued advancement in their knowledge, skills, professional recognition and financial rewards. Guillermo is proud to add that KSearch is a true learning organization where its people are continuously trained and exposed to a broad array of internal and external knowledge enhancement programs aside from the company’s core competencies in the executive search process, such as the economy, trends in industries and corporate functions, social skills, professional development, and foreign travels, among others.
Only recently, the Board of Directors of KSearch recognized its outstanding loyal performers: Karmeli U. Kintanar, 11 years with the firm, promoted to Vice President for Client Services, BPO and Finance practice area; Rubi-Ann C. Barcelona, 10 years with the firm, promoted to Consulting Director, IT, HR, and Sales & Marketing practice area; Jean T. Relabo, six years with the firm, promoted to Manager, Client Services for BPO and Finance practice area; Angie V. Briones-Uy, five years with the firm, promoted to Senior Consultant for BPO practice area; and Joylyn M. Pendos, four years with the firm, promoted to Associate Consultant, Client Services for Finance practice area.
Delivering Value through Quick and Effective Response
An essential backdrop to KSearch’s steady growth the last 11 years is its having seized the opportunity provided by the advent of globalization which triggered a shift to a highly competitive service-oriented economy where delivering value is the key to success. That KSearch forged a solid long-enduring partnership with one of its first major clients, a large multinational that pioneered in the BPO industry, is attributed to it having delivered value through its quick and effective response to this client’s critical recruitment mandates and major ramp-ups with tight on-boarding deadlines. Additionally, has helped create for the client, in the process, a strong brand image in the industry as a coveted employer.
Stronghold in BPO Industry
KSearch’s maintains a stronghold in the BPO industry, particularly in the Shared Services Center sector, having assisted successfully in filling key leadership roles in call center operations, finance shared services centers, IT outsourcing firms, and large back- office operations. Outside of the BPO industry, KSearch continues to make its mark with its chosen market, i.e., the executive search requirements of multinationals and large Philippine corporations in such industries as pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, media, and financial institutions, among others.
Quicker Response through KwikSearch
KSearch will launch this month its own tailored Data Management System, labeled “KwikSearch”, a tool that will allow quicker response to clients and sharper candidate selection process for its varying recruitment mandates.
The Big Little Company
KSearch takes pride in having kept true to its core philosophy of delivering value to clients and enhancing the careers of its candidates. Moving onward, Guillermo views KSearch as a “big little company, poised for continuous growth”. “We have”, he added, “practically all that a big company has: a solid mission, an ever-evolving vision, core values, change-savvy top management, enthusiastic consulting staff, enviable professional development programs, CSRs, and most importantly, a growing list of delighted clients, among others”.
