About PsyAsia International
The “idea” of PsyAsia International was conceived by our principal director during his time working in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In his three years there, he was teaching MBA Human Resource Management for the UK’s University of Leicester and also set up and managed a psychometric assessment consultancy. His work spanned the UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon and Kuwait. At the end of this 3 year period, the consultancy was handed over to an interest party and still run by them today. PsyAsia International then took shape in Singapore and Hong Kong – our first clients were government, including MINDEF in Singapore and HKIVE in Hong Kong. Over the years, this presence has grown remarkably and PsyAsia International has spurned into separate business entities in these two territories. PsyAsia International is the official name of the Hong Kong business and in Singapore we are PsyAsia International Pte. Ltd. We also have a growing partner network of local businesses representing PsyAsia International across Asia, for example, in Malaysia, Brunei and China among others. Furthermore, we have an entirely online business offshoot at psychometricassessment.com which brings our incredible talents in psychometrics to a more global client base.
