Our values

Our foundation philosophy is built upon 5 core values. We believe that these values give Smart Labour Consultant the competitive advantage over other labour practitioners. The main goal is client retention and establishment for long-term business relationship.


Impartial and just treatment or behavior without favouritism or discrimination

Solution driven

Solution driven refers to starting with an assured solution and then working towards fitting it to the problem (which include reformulating the problem so it will fit).


The quality of being trustworthy or of performing consistently well.


“What really matters in the work place is helping employees to feel appreciated.” Employees recognition is the timely, informal or formal acknowledgement of a person or team behavior, effort or business result that supports the organisation’s goals and values and which has clearly been beyond normal expectations.


It is the hallmark of a person who demonstrates sound moral and ethical principles at work. Acting with honor and trustfulness are also basic tenets in a person with integrity. People who demonstrate integrity draw others to them because they are trustworthy and dependable.
