What Are We Facing Today?
Unprecedented social unrest, global public hygiene breakout, constant technological disruption, different workplace expectations from millennial generation, blended office arrangement – the way
we grow our business, attract and retain talent can no longer be the same.
“There must be a better way to attract and retain talent.”
Ascension Associates was conceptualized with this idea. After spending close to 10 years in executive search, our founder Larraine often saw the alignment gap between business strategy and talent acquisition, and this prompted her to set up Ascension Associates to solve business problems with a bigger dimension.
From our first public exhibition in 2018, to launching our corporate learning and executive coaching programs in 2020, we have worked steadily towards our goal – to provide one-stop shop services through searching, training and coaching for our global clients.
The below timeline is a glimpse of our growth journey. In July 2022, we have officially launched our own school Ascension Circle, curating workshops for C-Suite to C-2, and career driven professionals. Go to our school page here and find out when we will host our next cohort.
How We Differ?

What's happening beyond the horizon?
To succeed in business, it is important for us to have visibility in strategy and workforce planning. Finding a balance in what we focus is key.
If we focus on just one spot, we might have missed the bigger picture; likewise when we see the whole picture, can we connect the dots? Are we missing the details?
When I took this picture in the hot air balloon watching the sunrise, the moment just dawned on me: what's happening on the ground? How's the light reflecting upon the houses and the lakes? Watching the light changed every minute the sun was rising was intriguing. So instead of just taking the sunrise pictures at my eye-level, I looked down and took a wide angle shot.
Sometimes when we face constant changes and got overwhelmed, take a moment to check and reflect: what's happening beyond the surface?
It helps us to keep things in perspective, clear our lens and see the world differently.
