Our name "Topptalent" comes from Top Professional Talent — meaning we constantly strive to find and work with the best. Singapore is home to the best. Singapore’s workforce is highly educated and skilled. More than 30% of Singapore's workforce hold a university degree, with another 15% having earned a diploma or professional qualification. Singapore’s bilingual education policy also means that the people are proficient in English and at least one other language, such as Mandarin, Bahasa Melayu, or Tamil.
Our rigorous screening process identifies talents in their domains who have passion and drive. Of the hundreds of applications, Topptalent sees each month, typically fewer than 5% are accepted.
The top talent derisking process cuts hiring risks by up to 50%. The full process can take between 1-4 weeks to complete
Step 1 - Language, Personality and Skillsops
The first step of the screening process is a comprehensive English language and communication interview evaluation. We assess personality traits, looking for candidates who are passionate and fully engaged in their work. We also assess their experience, expertise, connections, and skills (including newly acquired ones) to understand where there would be synergies.
Step 2 - Milestones and KPI scoping
We scope out the first task and major KPI / Milestone that the applicant will have to commit to. All parties in the hiring process, including the client, candidate, and us, are 100% clear what is the most important medium-term (9-12 months) milestone that the candidate must fulfill. This process defines the critical path to get to the KPI, including breaking down milestones into smaller phases, so that candidate and client have a good sense of how the major KPI would be achieved.
Step 3 - Free trial
Each candidate is assigned a test project to evaluate whether they can "walk the walk." Test projects take 1-2 weeks are comprehensive and provide real-world scenarios for candidates to demonstrate their competence, thoroughness, professionalism, and integrity.
Step 4 - Continuing support
We are committed to train and incubate the candidate while working with clients. As a quality-first company, our focus is to keep the candidate in line to fulfill the pre-agreed milestone/KPI, and this principle is implemented through every engagement.
The screening process may vary or be changed as needed at the company's discretion.
