JacksonGrant, AviusULD Announce Exclusive Talent Acquisition Partnership
JacksonGrant, AviusULD Announce Exclusive Talent Acquisition Partnership

JacksonGrant, Thailand’s premier technical recruitment agency, is pleased to announce a new, innovative talent acquisition agreement with AviusULD: a CCE Group company, a leading manufacturer and worldwide supplier of unit load devices (ULDs), primarily used for air cargo. AviusULD sets the standard for the global airline industry with durable, reliable, easy-to-use products that ensure safe flight operations. JacksonGrant is known for its market-leading, nimble, innovative, and effective approach to recruitment for multinational manufacturing, supply chain and logistics companies operating in Southeast Asia. This new partnership marks a significant milestone for both companies. AviusULD is experiencing rapid business growth, and the aviation industry manufacturer has signed an exclusive partnership with JacksonGrant to handle all of its talent acquisition needs.  "Working with JacksonGrant makes our life easier. They know our business inside-out. We've been using them for all of our recruitment during the past 8-9 years, so formalising this partnership was a no-brainer," says Klaus Hofmann, Chief Executive Officer at AviusULD & Group CEO of CCE Group.AviusULD has essentially hired JacksonGrant on a long-term retainer basis. It marks a turning point in the recruitment industry, as the ambitious regional talent consulting agency continues to roll out its game-changing ‘Recruitment as a Service’ (RaaS) partnership program. “I am delighted that AviusULD has chosen our Recruitment as a Service (RaaS) model of partnership," says Richard Jackson, Managing Director at JacksonGrant. “Our partners at AviusULD value the innovative, best-in-class recruitment consultancy that JacksonGrant provides to our clients. It is time for traditional recruitment to evolve, and we are leading the way by providing a holistic service that adds value at every stage of the talent acquisition process.” RaaS is the natural evolution of traditional RPO – Recruitment Project Outsourcing. An RPO contract will typically embed a recruiter with a corporate client to fill a fixed number of positions on a short-term basis. “In the recruitment business, RPO is an immediate problem-solver. The agency may provide some analytics, but it’s generally not a comprehensive service. RPO traditionally is one-dimensional. Once the contracted hires are made, the contractual relationship is over, says Jackson. “As an ambitious, yet niche, innovation company, Avius, needs to attract and hire the best talent to unlock their exciting business plans. The company was therefore looking for a more comprehensive talent strategy,” Jackson explains. “JacksonGrant’s unique Raas model addresses the entire talent pipeline. Effective consultancy begins long before we start sorting through resumes. Clients benefit from a more meaningful recruiting partnership that addresses long-term business strategy & hiring needs, succession planning, training, EVP (Employee Value Proposition), how to stand out as an employer of choice – traditional recruitment doesn’t support all that. With RaaS, both parties are committed to a long-term partnership, which means our team can focus on building a sustainable talent pipeline for AviusULD’s future success.” "At AviusULD, we always set high standards and find innovative ways to develop business partnerships, so the flexibility of this new agreement works really well for us.,” Hofmann says. “We now have access to the capabilities of the entire JacksonGrant team. They always deliver, so we're looking forward to a long and prosperous partnership together." Known for manufacturing innovation, AviusULD relies on recruiting the best, most agile talent to achieve ambitious business objectives. AviusULD’s progressive leadership recognise the myriad benefits of JacksonGrant’s unique, disruptive RaaS approach. Key advantages include: lower hiring costs, better quality of hires, higher retention rates, customised recruitment strategies, access to cutting-edge analytical tools, and the ability to scale according to specific needs.

Traits Leaders Need When Managing Global Teams
Traits Leaders Need When Managing Global Teams

Thailand is increasingly central to the global economy. Its’ manufacturing industries are booming and the country is a key hub in today’s interconnected and globalised supply chain. Because of Thailand’s location in Southeast Asia and its open economic and political outlook, businesses from Europe and North America are keen to shift their production or open new branches here. But managing global teams is never simple.  Ninety-one percent of businesses surveyed by HSBC in 2023 expect to expand into Southeast Asia over the next two years. As businesses extend their reach, they need effective leadership capable of steering multinational teams towards success. From bridging cultural gaps to navigating time zone differences to encouraging collaboration across geographical boundaries, the role of a leader in a global setting is demanding.  Whether you are a business seeking executive talents to take your global initiatives forward or an ambitious individual eager to cultivate your leadership ability, we’ll help you understand what it takes to manage global teams successfully. Working with Cultural Differences in Multinational Teams When managing global teams, leaders must notice and understand diverse cultural codes at play and then choose creative ways of addressing challenges that can affect the ability of teams to get the job done.  Culturally smart leaders can see how different ways of working can be innovative, and how they can interact to create alternative processes and procedures. They are able to bridge the gap between cultures, providing space for discussion and guiding team members to leverage the positives of working cross-culturally.  Get more insights into how Thai and Western work cultures differ and how they can work together. 4 Key Traits for Global Team Management Once you understand the cultural differences at play, you can work on developing essential skills that can help you manage global teams successfully. Traits of effective managers and leaders of multinational teams include the following: Communication Good communication makes it easier for global teams to work well together. Multinational teams often struggle with distance, both physical and cultural, which can breed misunderstandings and make it harder to spot mistakes. To cultivate good communication,  implement practices and procedures aimed at sharing information and building connections. Establish rotating schedules for team meetings, ensuring that all members have equal opportunities to contribute, regardless of their geographic location. Timing matters too. Send emails and plan meetings when everyone can be online during their work hours.Additionally, create opportunities for informal interactions, perhaps through virtual happy hours or casual gatherings, allowing team members to build personal connections beyond the confines of work-related discussions. Transparency Demonstrating a commitment to transparency and honesty in your leadership creates a culture where individuals can feel encouraged to speak openly and share relevant information. This not only strengthens team bonds but can improve trust – 86% of leaders say that the more transparent they are, the more their workforce trusts them. Transparency also aligns individuals with your organisation's values and culture, creating a shared sense of purpose. Sharing information about projects happening in other locations breaks down barriers and helps team members to see the bigger picture, understand how their contributions fit into the organisation's goals, and feel a sense of connection to the broader company culture.Build honesty and transparency into your own ways of working as well. Be as open as you can about challenges and successes and be willing to admit mistakes while detailing any new plans of action.  Resilience  Managing global teams is a juggling act. There are many opportunities for things to go wrong or for plans to change suddenly. The ability to bounce back from challenges and recover effectively is important. Cultivating personal resilience means maintaining a positive mindset, learning from difficult experiences, and remaining steadfast when problems arise. It’s also important to encourage resilience in your teams, keeping everyone on track. Leaders can do this by fostering a supportive environment as well as modelling positive behaviours particularly around wellbeing.Empower your teams by recognising and celebrating small wins, acknowledging effort, and emphasising a collective approach to problem-solving. Develop open communication channels to allow team members to share concerns and seek help. Provide opportunities for professional development to instil confidence and equip individuals with the skills to tackle challenges head-on. Visibility Effective leaders should be seen – something that can be hard to do if you are managing a large, geographically distant team! Visibility is a crucial leadership trait when overseeing multinational teams because it encourages approachability and connection. Leaders need to overcome distance by actively engaging with team members, being approachable, and demonstrating emotional and cultural intelligence in their interactions. Cultural intelligence allows leaders to apply their emotional intelligence appropriately while understanding and responding to the needs of their diverse teams. Visible leaders inspire by both showcasing enthusiasm for the organisation's goals and encouraging team members to share their own passions. When managing multinational teams, leaders who prioritise visibility lay the groundwork for stronger relationships, effective communication, and a shared sense of purpose across borders. In today’s highly connected and global business world, leaders who can effectively manage multinational team are a valuable commodity. Businesses moving into Thailand should prioritise finding talent with the skills to navigate such a challenging role. Likewise, candidates wanting to appeal to multinational businesses should take the opportunity to expand their skillsets and develop key leadership traits. Together we can create collaborative, resilient, and thriving teams ready to take their place on the world stage. As Thailand's leading Industrial, Logistics and Supply Chain recruitment agency, we connect business with experienced, technically proficient, English-speaking candidates at every level across Thailand and Southeast Asia.  Whether you’re an employer or a candidate, we can help you take advantage of the current market, grow your business, or progress in your career.  Learn more about JacksonGrant’s innovative service offering, find a new role, or get in touch with a consultant to discuss your needs.  

How to Encourage Communication and Collaboration in Cross-Cultural Teams
How to Encourage Communication and Collaboration in Cross-Cultural Teams

International expansion has become a key strategy for many businesses. As many turn their attention to the thriving industries and booming infrastructures of Thailand and Southeast Asia, businesses must understand the nuances of working across cultures. For example, new business registrations in Thailand are at a 10-year high. But how will these companies navigate the cultural gaps? Successful collaboration and communication for cross-cultural teams demands a proactive and thoughtful approach to ensure that teams can work together towards shared goals. This guide will equip business leaders and executives with strategies designed to improve communication and collaboration within cross-cultural teams so that your move into Thailand and Southeast Asia is a successful one! Building a Foundation by Understanding Cultural Diversity  Understanding the differences between Western and Southeast Asian work cultures is the first step to improving your team’s ability to work together. It’s important to recognise that neither approach is inherently “right” or “better” than the other, and that both cultures can learn from one other. In this way you’ll be able to develop a workplace culture unique to your organisation, one that takes the best from both. Becoming more inclusive in this way is proven to strengthen your organisation. Businesses with inclusive workplace cultures make better decisions, and they make them faster. They are also more creative, innovative and crucially productive. Businesses with diverse management teams are 19% more profitable.  Consider the following habits that can build a strong foundation for effective collaboration and communication in cross-cultural teams: Sharing resources that promote cultural understanding and respect Establishing cultural training programs and workshops Encouraging language learning and proficiency Matching employees with a cultural buddy 3 Strategies for Improving Collaboration and Communication You can leverage three strategies to support and improve communication and collaboration in your cross-cultural teams: Strategy One: Implementing Project Management Systems Choosing the right project management systems will drastically improve your team’s ability to work together. Choose tools that allow for real-time communication, document sharing and task tracking. You should also consider how user-friendly systems are to avoid issues caused by language barriers.  Leaders also need to ensure they remove any obstacles to use such as a lack of training, technological differences, or other concerns.  Set clear goals and expectations Track progress and milestones to ensure accountability Offer training where needed Structure meetings, processes, and procedures clearly and consistently Provide clear agendas to improve preparation Strategy Two: Encouraging Open Communication Encourage an environment of open communication by implementing policies and encouraging behaviours that promote trust and a sense of belonging.  Create space for employees to share their unique experiences and perspectives in informal as well as work related settings. Use visual aids such as graphs and graphics to convey key information. Encourage face-to-face interactions, especially on virtual calls to help build personal connections and trust. Visual cues can be a great way to overcome language barriers.Most of all, model good manners and behaviour when it comes to your own communication. Establish team building activities outside of work Be considerate of time-zones Encourage using cameras during meetings Ensure accessibility for all team members Promptly respond to emails and messages Strategy Three: Embracing Obstacles as Opportunities Building successful cross-cultural teams isn’t going to happen overnight. You will face challenges and setbacks, so it’s important to establish a mindset that views obstacles as opportunities. Encourage that mindset in your employees as well. Try to frame any problems your team encounters as chances for personal and professional growth. Share success stories from your own career.  Host regular all-hands meetings or townhalls where you communicate progress and use these meetings as a space to collectively brainstorm solutions and share best practices. You should also provide space for individuals to share with you challenges they’re facing and foster a culture where team members feel comfortable asking for guidance and mentorship. Schedule regular feedback sessions and check-ins Provide constructive feedback promptly Be open about challenges and difficulties Celebrate small wins and successes within the team The benefits of creating strong cross-cultural teams who can communicate and collaborate effectively goes much further than the short-term success of a single project. If you are considering expanding your business into Southeast Asia, the above strategies will provide you a strong basis for long-term growth and market competitiveness.  Those who invest in building bridges across cultural divides are not just adapting to change but actively shaping the future of global business. It's an investment that pays dividends not just in profits but in shared experiences, understanding, and truly global success stories.  As Thailand's leading Industrial, Logistics and Supply Chain recruitment agency, we connect business with experienced, technically proficient, English-speaking candidates at every level across Thailand and Southeast Asia.  Whether you’re an employer or a candidate, we can help you take advantage of the current market, grow your business, or progress your career.  Learn more about JacksonGrant’s innovative service offering, find a new role, or get in touch with a consultant to discuss your needs.

Thailand's Renewable Energy : Opportunities, Challenges, and the Path Forward
Thailand's Renewable Energy : Opportunities, Challenges, and the Path Forward

Thailand's engineering and renewable energy sector is currently experiencing a transformative phase, marked by a strategic emphasis on sustainable power generation, manufacturing, and technological innovation. Situated at the heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand's geographical location as a gateway to ASEAN countries offers strategic advantages, facilitating access to regional markets and promoting the export of renewable energy technologies. The government's unwavering commitment to renewables, exemplified through policies like the Power Development Plan (PDP), alongside substantial incentives and investments in research and development, are driving the sector's unprecedented growth trajectory. A Booming Manufacturing Hub The nation's burgeoning manufacturing base, particularly in the production of solar panels and wind turbines, underscores its ambition to position itself as a prominent renewable energy hub in Asia. Thailand's favourable climate conditions, abundant natural resources, and supportive regulatory framework further enhance its attractiveness for renewable energy investments. Initiatives such as the promotion of solar rooftop installations, feed-in tariffs, and tax incentives for renewable energy projects are instrumental in accelerating the transition towards a low-carbon economy. Challenges on the Road to Renewables Amidst the promising landscape, Thailand faces multifaceted challenges that necessitate strategic interventions to fully capitalise on its renewable energy potential. Infrastructure limitations, including grid capacity constraints and stability issues, pose significant hurdles to the seamless integration and rapid deployment of renewable energy sources. Moreover, the country's dependence on imports for critical components of renewable technologies exposes it to supply chain vulnerabilities and market uncertainties, highlighting the imperative for domestic manufacturing capabilities and supply chain resilience. Furthermore, the shortage of skilled labour in the renewables sector emerges as a pressing concern, potentially impeding the pace of technological advancement and project implementation. Addressing this skills gap requires concerted efforts in vocational training, capacity building, and educational reforms to nurture a robust talent pipeline equipped with the requisite expertise in renewable energy technologies, project management, and sustainability practices. Collaboration is Key: Unlocking Regional Potential Despite these challenges, Thailand remains poised to leverage a myriad of opportunities inherent in its renewable energy landscape. The establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) offers a unique platform for regional collaboration and knowledge sharing, enabling Thailand to harness synergies with neighbouring countries and advance collective efforts towards sustainable energy development. Collaborative initiatives, such as joint research projects, technology transfer programs, and cross-border investment ventures, can accelerate innovation diffusion and foster a conducive ecosystem for renewable energy investments across the ASEAN region. Moreover, strategic partnerships with international corporations, research institutions, and global renewable energy leaders can catalyse innovation cycles, promote technology adoption, and enhance Thailand's competitiveness in the global renewable energy market. By fostering an open innovation culture and embracing disruptive technologies, Thailand can position itself as a frontrunner in renewable energy innovation, driving economic growth, job creation, and environmental sustainability. Furthermore, Thailand has the opportunity to leverage renewable energy as a catalyst for sustainable tourism development. With its diverse natural landscapes, cultural heritage sites, and eco-tourism attractions, Thailand can capitalise on the growing trend of responsible travel by integrating renewable energy solutions into the hospitality sector. Initiatives such as green hotels, eco-lodges, and renewable-powered tourist facilities not only reduce carbon emissions but also enhance the overall visitor experience, positioning Thailand as a premier destination for environmentally conscious travellers. However, amidst the promising prospects, Thailand must remain vigilant to mitigate potential threats that could undermine its renewable energy transition. Global competition in the renewable energy sector is intensifying, with countries vying for market share, technological leadership, and investment opportunities. To maintain its competitive edge, Thailand must prioritise innovation, invest in research and development, and cultivate a conducive business environment to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) and foster indigenous innovation ecosystems. Policy Stability for Long-Term Growth The adverse impacts of climate change, including extreme weather events, sea-level rise, and environmental degradation, pose significant risks to Thailand's renewable energy infrastructure and resilience. As such, the implementation of robust climate adaptation measures, infrastructure resilience strategies, and disaster risk management frameworks is imperative to safeguard critical assets, ensure continuity of energy supply, and protect vulnerable communities from climate-induced disruptions. Additionally, political instability and policy uncertainty present formidable challenges to long-term renewable energy investments and regulatory consistency. To mitigate these risks, Thailand must adopt transparent, predictable, and investor-friendly policies, backed by bipartisan consensus and stakeholder engagement. Policy coherence, regulatory stability, and institutional transparency are essential to instil investor confidence, unlock private sector investments, and sustain momentum in the renewable energy transition. In conclusion, Thailand stands at a pivotal juncture in its quest for sustainable development, with renewable energy playing a central role in shaping its future energy landscape. By harnessing its inherent strengths, addressing critical challenges, and seizing emerging opportunities, Thailand can chart a resilient and inclusive path towards a greener, more prosperous future. Through collaborative partnerships, technological innovation, and forward-thinking policies, Thailand can emerge as a beacon of renewable energy excellence, driving economic growth, environmental sustainability, and social prosperity for generations to come.
