CapitaLand focuses on hiring a strong and diverse pool of talents internationally, while continually growing and developing their skills and competencies through various internal training programmes.

Cultivating a strong workforce

At CapitaLand, we believe that our company is only as extraordinary as its people. The people are the ones who contribute greatly to a company’s culture and its success, and this is why we focus on hiring the best people internationally, and have programmes for continual learning and development at all career stages.

As one of Asia’s largest real estate companies, we have established operations and businesses in countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific. We are an international company with employees from all around the world, and we embrace diversity and inclusivity, regardless of gender, race, culture, nationality and family status.

Our success is built on the strengths of our strong infrastructure and our workforce which consists of more than 12,000 employees in over 20 countries.

Building The Most Desired Company

Over the years, we have received many awards in recognition of our commitment to business excellence and sustainability. We are grateful and thankful, and know that these achievements would not be possible without the hard work and contributions of our talented and diverse pool of international employees.

Talent Management

As a multinational company headquartered in Singapore, we stand by our credo 'Building People. Building Communities.' This philosophy has helped us to manage a footprint that spans over 110 cities in more than 20 countries.

We are always on the look-out for high calibre people with strong potential to support us, and grow with us as we build a lasting and prosperous real estate company. Our belief is that while bringing in the best people is an important first step in our talent management strategy, bringing out the best in them is just as important.

To further support our goals, we have our own training institutes - the CapitaLand Institute of Management & Business (CLIMB) and Ascott Centre for Excellence (ACE). These internal training centres provide programmes for continual learning and skills development, and ensure more focused, systematic and consistent human resource development.
