About Thrive in Asia

Thrive in Asia (TiA in short) is a non-profit Pan-Asian HR community to enable HR professionals and students to learn from one another, and scale HR practice standards to greater heights. 

The Problem

HR professionals in Asia needs an avenue where we can learn and develop contextualised, yet progressive, HR practice. Being highly diverse in demographics and in differing stages of economic progress and maturity, Asia poses a difficult challenge for HR professionals across Asia to come together to learn from one another.

The Solutions


We Write

Our TiA magazine features all our Community Members' content on the topics that are relevant to us as HR professionals and students. Substance over form. No information clutter that dilute content value. Just good HR writings from fellow HR practitioners.


We Engage Offline

TiA Community Leaders organise face-to-face TiA Gatherings and workshops for fellow TiA community members to connect meaningfully. We have only one rule during such events: TiA Community Members and Leaders are NOT allowed to sell or advertise service or product that benefits themselves or their companies commercially. With this rule, our TiA Community Members can feel safe and candid whilst interacting with one another meaningfully.


We Engage Online

TiA has enabled Workplace, by Facebook, to allow TiA Community Members and Community Leaders to engage online with one another in a fun and meaningful manner. For example, community members can find and message one another, share good HR content found on the internet, or even organise gatherings and workshops.
