Our Goals

Our goal is to improve your business’s performance one hire at a time. We at Waterford realize this cannot be achieved by ourselves so we strive to truly partner with our clients to better understand their needs and culture. We after all are not hiring for ourselves, we are simply an extension of the corporations that have given us their trust to assist them in reaching their hiring goals. This Waterford takes on with all humility and the understanding of the responsibility we have been tasked with.



Competitive Advantage

Recruiters

Waterford recruiters are the best in the business with our staff having an average of over 11 years search experience in wide variety of fields; therefore Waterford always has someone on hand that can truly understand exactly what you are looking for instead of having a recruiter fumbling around in the dark and using your time to get up to speed.

Technology

We utilize the most advanced technologies allowing us to find the best candidates fast. We are recruiters, not database developers! We use only the most state of the art internal and external databases and ATS (Applicant Tracking Systems), unlike the majority of our competitors. Your organization will not find us using some ad hoc recruiting solution we developed on our own.

Database​

The depth of our recruiting process is the backbone to our success. This includes the most innovative needs assessment, proprietary recruiting technology including our database of over 800,000 candidates that are relevant to the kinds of industries and career levels that Waterford serves. (Having 800,000 temp employees that last worked at McDonalds would not be very helpful)

Integrity

Waterford has dealt with a number of companies for over 10 years. We understand that to build a great company we need to do the right thing when it comes to our clients. Turnover of our candidates reflect poorly on us so we don’t engage in the “anyone that will get the job” mentality. In many cases we advise clients to walk away from candidates.



Our History

Waterford would perform quality recruitment work quickly and cost effectively. Since its inception, Waterford Staffing Group Inc. was determined to become a leading source for top Candidates. Our efforts focused on building lasting relationships with candidates and clients alike and we are happy to continue this tradition. We have seen many changes over the last 20 years in sourcing tools, methods, technology and client demands however one thing remains the same – great talent builds great companies. Our motto of “people going places” continues to identify those whom we deal with. We have learned a lot over the years. Our growth in knowledge and experience brought evolution. When Waterford Staffing Group Inc. was founded, there were only a handful of permanent search firms in Ontario and now everywhere you look there is a new staffing agency sprouting up. After differentiating ourselves over the last 20 years through our integrity and reliability, the group now known as Waterford continues to place great candidates within your company, long-term.
