APCO’s Tokyo team is one of the most diverse in APCO’s global network, attracting multilingual talent who have studied or worked in a dozen countries.
At APCO, each individual employee has the unique opportunity to define their own APCO experience and be catalysts for progress. We have a very open management style. Staff at all levels are empowered to share their opinions and ideas to help shape the organization no matter where they come from. In addition to regular learning and development (L&D) programs, we provide each staff member with L&D allowances to spend on trainings and activities to build their professional network.
As an independent, majority women- and employee-owned business, we have strong, family-oriented policies and consider employees’ work arrangement requests on a case-by-case basis. We are a pioneer in implementing remote working and had been piloting a regular work from home scheme since 2019, even before the pandemic.
Mutant is a weird name for an agency, we know. We’d love to tell you there’s a cool reason for it – like being exposed to gamma radiation or being bitten by a spider – but alas, our origin story is less dramatic.
We started in 2012 as a PR agency, led by one guy with a simple idea – to grow an agency that focused on getting business results and removing agency fluff. Our people and culture are key to our success, and establishing arguably one of the best agency cultures in Singapore is something we are incredibly proud of.
Adapting workplace learning in the time of coronavirus has been essential for our businesses across Asia. Led by the Singapore team, Zeno has carefully crafted a training and development program that ensured we did not press pause when it came to the needs of our people. Collaborating with leaders and working with managers, a thoughtful response to digital learning was quickly addressed in Singapore. From Zeno LIFT to Growth & Innovation 8 programs, the content and blueprint produced has not only benefitted Zeno Singapore but used by our teams across Asia. Ultimately, the quick and considerate response to online learning has not only given our team development opportunities and improved learning overall but served as a beacon through this challenging period.
