I found your team enthusiastic, in touch with current  hiring processes and very good value – a very encouraging relationship. There was a good selection of candidates, the video process was efficient and was important to confirm the impressions and data that was available in the résumés.

I would like to sincerely thank you for the outstanding recruitment process and experience. With Travelport Canada’s recent expansion plans, we had very aggressive goals to attract and attain superlative talent for several roles and positions in a very short period of time.

The Employment Office exceeded my expectations in every possible way. The process allowed me to remain hands-off during the initial screening while The Employment Office diligently screened and interviewed the plethora of appealing candidates resulting from the successful recruitment advertising campaign.

The unique and highly effective assessment days were the pièce de résistance in the entire process. Holding one in Vancouver and one in Toronto allowed us to scour the country for the best talent. With the assessment day structure, the investment of time required by Travelport in the entire recruitment process is significantly minimized and yet the results are maximized and unparalleled to any other process or effort.

It was during the intense assessment days, which had been diligently planned to elicit the true behaviors and aptitude of the candidates, that I was able to conclude a successful outcome. Through various activities, assessments and exercises all designed to uncover those with the ability and the skill set needed for our company and the positions; I was able to confidently hire each position.

I would like to thank the entire EO team, but in particular, I must recognize the outstanding service, collaboration and talent that you, Rachel and Julie provisioned throughout the process. With the unwavering success of the appointments, there is no other recruitment company or process I will ever consider.

The Employment Office approach to recruitment has yielded some excellent candidates and 2 successful placements in very challenging positions that we had to fill. We had varying success with conventional recruitment agencies so when they approached us with their service we decided to take a chance on it and it paid off for us. We would certainly recommend giving them a try – especially for those positions which are typically difficult to fill.

BloodTribe

Blood Tribe Police Service

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Employment Office for the tremendous job they did in advertising for the vacant Chief of Police position at the Blood Tribe Police Service in southern Alberta. Prior to getting their assistance, only four resumes were received. Once they became involved, over 30 highly qualified applications were submitted! I am very pleased with the service they provided and would use them again in an instance!

Working with Employment Office has turned out to be one of the most positive experiences. I not only love SCOUT, I love the service that I am provided, from the marketing to the account management. Anytime I need something, I know it will be done quickly and this saves me a tremendous amount of time. Our account manager, Kari, is extremely attentive. She had her work cut out for her trying to convince me to use Employment Office but our results speak for themselves. One of our campaigns attracted over 200 quality applications and I was stunned. I have no doubt that using Employment Office is at least 50 times more effective than what we were doing before. I just placed another campaign with Kari and within 24 hours I am already ranking applicants in SCOUT. I will refer anyone who asks me how I do it.

The Employment Office, most especially James Finlayson, gave us great pricing on our recent 3 recruitment campaigns along with in-depth training on how to use their online recruitment website. It is a great asset to outsource the advertising of recruitment campaigns to them. Fast, friendly and prompt service!

CanEl

CanElson Drilling Inc.

We decided to try Employment Office’s services because our previous recruitment strategy was not getting us the results we needed for a position that we needed to fill. Service was fast and efficient, the site was easy to navigate and we were able to fill the position with a quality candidate within a couple of weeks. Thank you.

Employment Office is definitely not a traditional recruitment company. They are a partner in recruitment services allowing us to regain many valuable hours so we can focus on the business. We only have to spend quality time with qualified candidates. They let us customize what services we need and work diligently to get us what we need…skilled people who want to join our team and be an active part of our success.

Partnering with Employment Office is a great way to streamline recruitment! The interview questions helped identify qualified candidates, and filtered out unqualified candidates, resulting in significant time savings for us. The process also made ranking, short listing and interviewing fast and effective. It’s the only way to go!

Employment office is recruitment solution provider. I have found when posting opportunities on our own we don’t hit the mark as easily and this is demonstrated by the results of the caliber of candidates that we receive via Employment Office.

Ted from the Employment Office worked closely with our company to ensure the advertising was what we wanted and needed. The ad was re-worked and extended to meet our needs. We would use the Employment Office again.
