Today, Hays Canada (“Hays”) announced it has been selected for the HR Reporter Reader’s Choice Awards as one of the top three Recruitment Agencies in Canada for a second year in a row. The annual award recognizes excellence in HR suppliers and is determined by surveying HR professionals about which companies they prefer to work with. Nearly 3000 HR professionals participated in the voting.

“I am delighted to get this recognition from the HR professionals for a second year in a row,” says Hays Canada President, Rowan O’Grady. “Our single most powerful resource is people and in a technologically advanced world Hays takes pride in humanizing the way we work.  We strive to consistently build strong relationships with both clients and candidates to give them unmatched service and results by finding and engaging the best talent and making the best match. The positive feedback from over 3000 HR professionals is a testament to our hard-working, knowledgeable consultants across the country who bring the human element to Hays every day.”

With nine offices and more than 200 specialist recruitment consultants around the country, Hays Canada offers a wide range of recruitment, workforce and payrolling options for Canadian businesses.

“We were overwhelmed with the level of engagement from HR professionals across Canada this year. Nearly 3,000 professionals took time to cast more than 65,000 votes,” says HR Reporter Editor- In- Chief, Todd Humber. “A big thanks goes to our loyal readers for taking time out of their hectic schedules. After all, these companies weren't chosen by a handful of judges behind a closed door.”

Established in 1968, last year Hays globally placed 62,000 people in full-time jobs around the world, approximately 200,000 people in temporary assignments.
