Founded in 2000 in Spain, the search firm began its APAC operations with its first office in Pune India in 2010, and now has over four offices across the APAC region including Gurgaon, Mumbai, Pune and Singapore. Given the current economic situation, among the overall trends, hiring is at an all-time low. However, the handful of companies still hiring are mostly using virtual hiring tools or tech-based solutions. To be able to lead a successful expansion in these challenging times Catenon has to be patient and continuously adapt to the changing market needs.
