Lisa Huber, Office Manager at Falcon Engineering Ltd.
Falcon Engineering Ltd. has contacted the Okanagan Staffing team twice for emergency help in our firm. They knew exactly the person we required in our firm, and we had candidates hired and in place in the tight time frame that we gave them. Both candidates came with top-notch skills and we actually ended up hiring one of them who is now becoming a valued member of our team. I would not hesitate to recommend Okanagan Staffing to any of our clients or contractors. We would definitely use their services again if required.
Dr. David Wikenheiser, ND
My small business is operating a Naturopathic Medical Office in Kelowna. To offer the range of services that best serve the needs of my patients I need staff. When I need temporary staff, I call Stacey Lalonde (Recruitment Manager) at Okanagan Staffing Services. I have known Kevin Renwick the owner of Okanagan Staffing Services, for many years. I know and trust Kevin and Stacey to send me qualified professional temporary help when I need it. Okanagan Staffing Services lets me concentrate on my main business delivering medical care.
I am reluctant to make referrals to other doctors and businesses because my reputation goes with those referrals. I can confidently recommend Okanagan Staffing Services because I know and use them.

"Since I arrived at BC Tree Fruits Cooperative in 2016, we have exclusively used Okanagan Staffing Services to fill our short term vacancy needs in Human Resources, and Finance. Furthermore, two of the candidates presented were hired full time during their contract tenure. This shows the quality of the candidates that Okanagan Staffing Services is bringing to its clients. We have used no less than fifteen "contractors" since 2016 and have always been provided with top quality candidates that met the qualifications we were after. We will continue to use Okanagan Staffing Services for our future Human Resources, Administrative and Finance needs."
Recently, Accelerate Okanagan found itself in need of an Administrative professional to cover for maternity leave. The individual we required needed to wear multiple hats and be a multi-tasker, providing superior administrative support, customer service, reception services, marketing support and more. Okanagan Staffing Services dealt with us most professionally in understanding our exact recruitment needs, and promptly provided a short list of pre-screened candidates, one of whom we hired, and who proved to be one of our best hires. Their services were prompt, professional, flexible and cost effective. I would not hesitate in recommending Okanagan Staffing Services to my business colleagues in the Okanagan technology community.
I just want to say thanks to you and your team for making our first (of many I hope) experience with Okanagan Staffing an incredibly positive one. We were in a jam and needed some assistance for a week to set up a new accounting system. Your staff took our request and the next day confirmed a person for us who was fantastic. Not only was she punctual, professional and well prepared but she completed the task in less time than expected and spent time doing some training and planning over and above what we had originally requested. Outstanding service and a great bang for our buck! Thanks.
Aimee (temp) was outstanding! It was unfortunate that she did not have a bookkeeping background as we would have hired her instantly!! The response time from Okanagan Staffing was excellent and I really appreciate having you as a resource. I think your services are great; follow up and client satisfaction is very apparent.

After a difficult time in securing an employee who shared our same values and could be counted on, I want to commend you on all the extra effort and time you put into finding the perfect fit for us at Penticton Apartments.

I want to thank you for taking the time to understand our needs and be sincerely interested in the well-being of our business.

I found Okanagan Staffing Services to be professional, honest and fun to deal with as a recruitment agency. From the initial job order to the completion of it, I was updated regularly with progress of the order. They filled the job quickly and efficiently, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone out there, candidate or client, to take care of your staffing needs.

The employee that Okanagan Staffing sent over to fill a temporary Receptionist position for us was enjoyable to work with, had great phone etiquette, and was very personable with our customers. She both met and exceeded our expectations, including having an excellent appearance, attitude, and attendance/punctuality, and we would request her again should she be available in the future.
