We have a simple yet ambitious mandate - We seek to provide human capital insights, ideas and inspiration to business leaders in Asia.
With Asia being the fastest growth region in the world, we believe that progressive people practices are critical in sustaining and fueling this growth.
Our Value Proposition:
- “For Asia, From Asia”
With Asia being the fastest growing region in the world, there is a real need for culturally-relevant people practices to sustain and fuel this growth.
- “Rigour and Relevance”
Our goal is to drive research that has both scientific rigor and industry relevance.
- “Collaborative Connections”
We are proponents of collaborative research – no one research institute will be able to solve the complex human capital challenges of Asia

Our Publication: “HQ Asia”
We intend to not just produce research, but to also disseminate this research to those most able to act on it.
Our publication, “HQ Asia” is meant to connote not just “Headquarters” but also “Human Quotient”. We believe that companies that are best able to track and improve their “HQ” are most likely to leverage their biggest assets: Their People.
Our publication will showcase the best practices and thinking behind human capital and leadership in Asia. We will serve as a discussion and learning platform – pulling together human capital success stories, cutting-edge research and personal reflections from foremost business leaders in Asia.
