HR professionals vote Hays one of the best recruitment agencies in Canada

July 9th, 2017

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. The annual award recognizes excellence in HR suppliers and is determined by surveying HR professionals about which companies they prefer to work with. More than 1000 HR professionals participated in the voting, which took place in February and March 2017.

“I am delighted to get this recognition from the HR professionals we work with every day,” says Hays Canada President, Rowan O’Grady. “We strive to consistently give our clients unmatched service and results by attracting the best talent and making the best match. This award is a testament to our hard-working, knowledgeable consultants across the country who are always ready to go the extra mile for all our clients.”

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. “The Readers’ Choice Awards highlight HR vendors and suppliers that our readers selected as their favourites – the ones they think are the best at what they do,” says HR Reporter Editor-In-Chief, Todd Humber. “This designation isn’t decided by a handful of judges behind closed doors, it is the decision of HR professionals, who cast more than 32,000 ballots this year.”

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. The company was recognized in 2016 as the Most Socially Engaged Global Recruitment Company. In Canada, Hays places more than 2,500 people a year and is nationally recognized for its annual salary guide, which is used by more than 5,000 HR professionals as a guideline for salary and benefit trends.
