History of IMC

IMC Group was founded by its Chairman, Mr. William Liu. Working in Taipei in 1977, William formed a book club with several like-minded friends to satisfy his self-expectations for continuing learning. In the beginning, only 6~7 members met regularly, and as membership grew, monthly gatherings were held for mutual learning. This continued up to 1988 when William felt there was more to it than being an armchair strategist, that he should start taking actions, deciding to explore entrepreneurship with interested parties.

At the time, age was not an issue for the entrepeneurs as most had more than a decade of work experience. Niches considered had to capitalize on their wealth of experience, yet required limited funding, to develop businesses with strong market potentials. Initial target was temporary placement service, only to discover the market in Taiwan was not ready. Chance encounter with a Japanese employment magazine resulted in the business partners seeing the business opportunity and embarking to study its business potential.

Under the newspaper duopoly, enterprises primarily recruited through newspaper advertisements. However, newspaper advertisements were discovered to have three weaknesses: first, advertising spaces were very small; second, they lacked focus; and third, they were expensive (sometimes enterprise owners needed to spend NT$10,000 to get one resume). With weaknesses come opportunities, the business opportunity in recruitment was foreseen ahead of time.

In 1989, 20 shareholders, with more than half having Ph.D. degrees, co-founded the "Job Express". Primarily, advertisements from the two major newspapers were collected and categorized in the hope to attract enterprises to place regular advertisements. There was also a secondary aim of educating the market. However, the business venture was unable to turn a profit after two years, resulting in a reshuffle at the shareholder's meeting and then separation.

Having accumulated networking relationships with company human resources executives from his time at the magazine, William decided to change direction and entered the headhunting industry. In 1991, William and five business partners formed IMC, with executive search as initial service. Moved by the knowledge of temporary placement from various countries, William still believed temporary placement will be needed in Taiwan's market. As expected, with the amendment of the Labor Standards Act in 1999, together with call centers established by emerging banks, enterprises' demand for temporary placement to meet outsourcing needs greatly increased.

During that period, William also created the first Taiwanese employment website in 1995, integrating internal recruitment system and database - foreseeing the arrival of the information age. Several years later, the company's operations in Taiwan were on track turning losses into profit. In 2000, William saw tremendous HR market opportunities in the Greater China region and decided to expand businesses in China, first establishing the company in Shanghai, expanding to Beijing in 2001, and Tianjin in 2007, being the earliest Taiwanese HR firm to develop in China's market.

As growth stablized, more and more clients made different requests, in particular payroll calculation. HR departments in many companies were keen to outsource this due to the need for timeliness and accuracy. With IMC having adopted informationalization earlier, many operations could be put through the system. In 2006, IMC launched the new Payroll Outsourcing service accepting the first outsourcing projects from major shipping companies that remain to this day.

After observing the job market over a long period of time, discovering many highly sought-after senior level talents gradually approaching the retirement stage were still passionate about their work and willing to contribute back to society regardless of payment. As a result, Interim Executive, Executive Coaching, and Outplacement services were born, enabling IMC gradually to become a professional services HR company, collaborating with numerous international headhunting companies and HR associations building a global network.

In 2011, Lucille Wu, the most valuable HR specialist in the Greater China region, was invited to assume the position of the group's General Manager to build a professional managerial company of heritage. In the same year, Permanent Placement become its own service to be better able to meet enterprise recruitment needs. In 2014, Project Outsourcing was initated for enterprises to recruit large numbers of project talents in the shortest time.

In addition, with numerous years in the market taking the "people" perspective, IMC Group discovered people often needed assistance be it for work, life, or family. Homecare was an inevitable trend, and IMC resolutely decided to engage in this service with the objective of achieving balance between work and life.

Responding to international developments coupled with nearly 30 years of professional experience, IMC is able to observe transformations in market economy, industry dynamics, and individual talent structure, allowing services to be better suited to the macro environment, and becoming a forward-looking, professional HR company.
