Pay It Forward Recruitment doesn't have a fancy downtown office, layers of staff or exuberant overhead costs that those "extras" bring with them. What it does have is a small suburban office, a massive passion for recruiting, a long time love affair with the world of marketing, sales, operations and HR, a relentless commitment to excellence in client service, an extensive network of contacts in the GTA corporate business community and over 12 years of recruiting expertise and experience to get the job done.
Without those extra overhead costs, Pay It Forward Recruitment is able to pass significant savings along to clients by extending three (3) service offerings: (1) a highly competitive cascading contingency fee schedule (full cycle searches); (2) an "a la carte" menu of recruitment services (partial search assistance with flat fees for services completed); and, new for 2013, (3) on site or offsite short term contract recruitment (hire PIFR to work on full cycle searches for 1, 3 or 6 month contract periods - hourly rate or flat fee). These service options are guaranteed to keep your bottom line, your Hiring Managers, your ROI and your CFO in a very happy place. Pay It Forward Recruitment offers clients a 6 month guarantee on all new hires resulting from FULL CYCLE searches (subject to restrictions as outlined in the Client Service Level Agreement).
The company slogan above says it all. PIFR is about Recruiting, committed to delivering Results and very passionate about the long term Rewards that those results bring for clients and candidates.
More importantly, PIFR is proud to extend those rewards even further.
When I decided to start my own freelance recruitment business, there were 3 key mandates in my planning process:
- #1. Make sure that the business involved the things in my career that I'm most passionate about (recruiting, people and results);
- #2. Provide the absolute best in client service and results for my clients and candidates; and
- #3. Share my success by donating to worthy local or national Canadian charitable organizations that would, in turn, help others.
From that moment on, the "Pay It Forward Recruitment" company name took its first breath and I knew I was on to something good - just like Henry Ford spoke about over 65 years ago. For me, the charitable aspect of Pay It Forward Recruitment is far more than just a philanthropic gesture. It's personal.
In July 2003, at the age of 36 and at an extremely busy time in my recruiting/marketing career, I was diagnosed with stage 1, invasive breast cancer. That day changed my life forever. During the next seven months that followed, I dealt with uncertainty, surgeries, radiation treatments and recovery. Fortunately, I was one of the lucky ones - the cancer was caught early and I can proudly say that I'm a survivor. Following that experience, I made the conscious decision to take all the perseverance, resilience, positivity and determination that helped me get through those tough times and make those traits a more permanent part of both my personal and professional lives. Doing something more than just work became even more important to me and I knew I wanted to help others who were affected by cancer or other diseases.
In addition to personal donations and participation in annual cancer fundraising events in my community over the years, I am very proud to add to those efforts at Pay It Forward Recruitment in the form of a donation out of my annual professional recruitment fees to selected local charitable organizations. Each year, three charities are selected to be the recipients of donations and it's an honour to be able to assist in this manner.
For 2013, Pay It Forward Recruitment is thrilled to be a Corporate Donor to the following amazing Ontario based organizations: The Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation; Pancreatic Cancer Canada; and The Pet Trust Fund c/o Ontario Veterinary College - University of Guelph. By selecting Pay It Forward Recruitment as your outsourced recruitment partner, you can be proud to know that you are helping to enrich careers, companies and lives.
