    Case Studies

    • Moving into high gear for the City of Toronto

      The Challenge

      Many organizations were cutting down on activities in the first COVID-19 lockdown of 2020. But for the City of Toronto cycle-sharing program, the pressure was on to ramp up fast.
      Staffworks was contracted by the City to help expand urban bike-sharing – at high speed. The City asked us to provide a team of cycle-minded employees who could assemble and distribute new bike-sharing stations and bicycles.

      Staffworks was proud to quickly provide a team of 15 employees who reflected the client’s energetic, committed, fun culture. Staffworks people played a critical role in fulfilling two key municipal initiatives for the City of Toronto:

      1. The ActiveTO program, aiming for a healthier and more active urban population.
      2. The expansion of a sustainable alternative transport system.
    • Immediate need for customer service staff

      The Challenge

      Our client was experiencing an accelerated volume of high-stakes inbound calls – customer service was overwhelmed.
      But the client’s own recruiting efforts had not produced the quality of staff they required. Understaffed and under pressure, they turned to Staffworks for a solution.


      Within three days, the Staffworks Recruitment team interviewed and presented a dozen qualified candidate profiles. Four employees were hired on a permanent basis, exceeding the client’s goal for the first round of hiring.
      Four more employees were hired less than a month later.
      Staffworks is now this client’s primary resource for recruitment services.

    • Sales support needed – stat!

      The Challenge

      This Alberta-based safety and compliance specialist needed a permanent sales coordinator to support sales activity nation-wide. Within 48 hours, Staffworks:

      – Provided three carefully-vetted profiles,
      – Coordinated the multi-stage interview process, and
      – Conducted thorough reference checks.


      After only two weeks, the client made an offer to their selected candidate, and hired their first permanent sales support person.
      This rapid, top-notch hire allowed the sales team to focus on their strength: bringing in new customers and growing the business.

    • Turning an ask into an ongoing solution

      The Challenge

      Two of Staffworks’ clients were looking to streamline their process of obtaining quality temporary administrative staff on an as-needed basis, across multiple regions.
      Requirements were often same- or next-day requests, making timely turnaround a necessity.


      Staffworks created pool of pre-screened and fully vetted employees, ready to be placed on assignment across multiple cities.
      Staffworks now places employees with these organizations on a daily basis.
      The Staffworks team continues to add quality candidates to the pool, ensuring that there are always people available for regions that require them.



    • Large-scale digitization project

      The Challenge
      Our new client was initiating a large-scale digitization project. This demanded a reliable and detail-oriented team to populate 1000s of paper records into their database – while maintaining data integrity and confidentiality.

      The client quickly engaged multiple temporary employees from the candidates we proposed. Despite recruitment, hiring, and onboarding occurring during a full lockdown, the project began on time, fully staffed. To date, this team has a 100% retention rate, with many being transitioned to the client’s permanent payroll. Within weeks of first hire,  an additional 6 temporary staff members were brought on to tackle other outstanding projects.

    • High stakes implementation

      The Challenge

      This national retailer was implementing enterprise software that involved transitioning a payroll of thousands of employees over all ten provinces.
      The requirement was immediate. The ideal candidate needed a strong knowledge of payroll processes and requirements across Canada, as well as the technical skills required to lead this technology transition.

      This position was essential to the implementation of the enterprise software. Not only did the implementation go well, within 6 months the employee happily accepted a permanent employment offer.
