Proud to be a part of Food4Kids

food4kids

I’m so proud to be a member of the Board of Directors for Food4Kids.  Approximately 5 years ago I had a chance meet up with the Executive Director of F4K. This was right around the time that the idea for a weekend food program in Hamilton Halton was taking shape.  I’m grateful that our paths intersected and ultimately it lead me to this amazing organization. I have a page dedicated on my website to this charity because we are doing great impactful work in the community to ensure to that no child goes hungry.

How an Employer should properly conduct a Lay-off with Dignity, Integrity & Class

How an Employer should properly conduct a Lay-off with Dignity, Integrity & Class

I am so very fortunate to have great clients. Clients who value their employees, guide and motivate and even inspire them. I am fortunate as well to be at a stage of my career where I get to be highly selective on which companies I will assist with their Recruitment and Staffing needs. I set out to work with diverse industries with diverse staffing needs so that I can keep learning and evolving and never feel like my work days are dull or repetitive. I have proudly become a Small Business Recruitment Company, providing cost effective full service Recruitment Consulting Services to small to mid sized companies who are progressive, innovative and understand the value their employees have to their businesses success and longevity. As a Recruiter of choice serving the Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga and Greater Toronto area, I have watched over the years with great pride, many of my hires become promoted and really leave a footprint in the organization that I helped connect them with. There is no better feeling, akin to matchmaking I suppose and addictive enough to keep me in the game for over 16 years! It is a pleasure to help these clients to find and to hire new talent for their teams. This is my calling, to be a Recruiter, to know how to spot the right people at the right time and help engage them and align them with my clients.
