Client Staffing Solutions:

41% of companies estimate that the cost of hiring someone who is not a good fit for the position is $25,000.  Does your company have an extra $25,000 to waste? Not many businesses do. Yet, few company managers and business owners have the extra hours in their week to properly locate, screen, interview, and reference check potential candidates.

This is where Okanagan Staffing Services shines. Our resources get put to work for you:
