  Message from Access President - Linda Ford


As the spring season is upon us, we are certainly seeing a business in the staffing industry that we have not seen since 2008.  We are approaching pre-recessionary numbers which is a welcome relief after an extended downturn.  The staffing industry often seeing declining numbers first and are among the leading industries to see the rebound.  As the US economy stabilizes even further it will have a continued positive impact on the marketplace here.  The growth does not seem to be isolated to one or two industries - with clients in various industries growing and hiring once again.

The employment market is making a shift from a purely employers market to one more balanced with both employees and employers set and able to negotiate.  Job seekers are seeing more opportunities materialize and the most skilled are enjoying multiple offers and choices that have not been prevalent during the past two years.  Companies will have to adjust or find themselves with out that top talent that they are looking for.

It is a new world with employers and recruiters utilizing social network sites to both find and vet potential candidates.  In person networking is still a valuable tool and those engaging in networking are a step ahead of those who don't regardless of what side of the desk you sit on.

We see all of this as very positive climate for business in Ontario. 

At Access Careers we want to thank our clients and candidates for choosing us to help bring top talent and teams together.
