Since being established in Kuala Lumpur in 2006, and later with its second office in Penang in 2016, Robert Walters Malaysia has made an indelible mark in the field of recruitment.
The company has established itself not only as one of the top professional recruitment firm for specialist roles across industries but also as an employer of choice in Malaysia.
As we mark 15 years of recruitment excellence in Malaysia, we asked our employees their favourite things about working at Robert Walters Malaysia. Here are some reasons why they love working here:
“I recently celebrated my 10th year anniversary at Robert Walters Malaysia. Many have asked me why I have stayed this long in one company. My answer is easy - there’s no reason to look elsewhere when I’m already working in a company that has the same compatible values as those which I hold dear. It’s always a joy to come to work. Our people are focused on the battles ‘out there’; there’s no time for internal office politics or unnecessary drama. Instead, we collaborate and motivate one another, and celebrate wins together. Robert Walters Malaysia’s culture of cultivating a growth mindset, coupled with our company-wide passion in making a difference in our candidates’ lives and clients’ businesses are the reasons why I love working here, and I’m sure many would agree with me.”
