“Working with VPI has made my job easier and I am extremely grateful for their assistance and continued support.”
– Shannon, Wastewise Community Resource Centre
Wastewise is a thrift store and resource centre servicing Georgetown. As a registered charity, they take on many roles within the community. With diverse initiatives like working with other charities, accepting and recycling donations of used goods, or educating the community about the environment, it’s no wonder that finding employees who fit the organization’s needs can be challenging.
Wastewise was looking for a new addition to their team, but struggled to find the right candidate. As an Employment Ontario service provider, we offer a range of free employer resources, services, and incentives that can be customized to help any type of organization. We understand the importance of finding the right fit between a candidate and an organization.
After getting a better sense of their specific hiring challenges and needs, our team brought forward a candidate who was the right fit and was hired. As Shannon from Wastewise put it, “VPI found me a rare gem of an individual for our team! I would definitely work with VPI again. They are wonderful to deal with and I feel that they truly care about our organization’s needs.”For more information on custom support for your organization, contact us today.
