Toronto-based retail recruiter Best Retail Careers International Inc. is launching a first-of-its-kind membership-based recruitment concept called ‘Retail Staffing Canada’ that pairs retailers with qualified candidates. With an aim of saving time and money, membership-based recruiting will disrupt the entire industry. Interested retailers and landlords are encouraged to pre-register using the form below.
Created by industry expert Suzanne Sears, the new ‘Retail Staffing Canada’ club is simple, fast and considerably less expensive than typical recruiting. It also eliminates time that may be wasted with traditional recruiting while at the same time creating a more pleasant experience for both employers and candidates.
For a membership fee, retailers have access to a vast number of pre-screened, prequalified talent seeking new opportunities, and Best Retail Careers International Inc. guarantees a minimum number of hires per year. If a member retailer has a position available, Retail Staffing Canada will forward qualified candidates with a guarantee that you’ll get what you’re looking for.
Ms. Sears refers to it as ‘the Tinder of retail — matching is done based on applicant profiles. Retailers therefore don’t have to take the time to search a vast number of resumes to find qualified candidates. Rather, they’re matched with qualified candidates that have been pre-screened, saving time and money.
In 2017 Best Retail Careers International Inc. launched its highly successful ‘Super Star Talent Registry’ which saw more than 15,000 Canadian retail workers register on its site. Candidates confidentially submitted their names and resumes into Best Retail Careers International Inc.’s database, presenting themselves as being ‘open to opportunities as they arise’. As a result, many candidates in the database are currently employed elsewhere, and they’re seeking a change.
The thousands of candidates were pre-screened and many have already received screening calls. They’re waiting to be matched with retailers for their next dream job. The quality of candidate is therefore considerably better than with traditional ‘blast ads’.
Time and money savings come from the fact that retailers don’t have to search resume databases and candidates don’t have to look for companies hiring, because Retail Staffing Canada’s matching is done based on profiles.
Best Retail Careers International Inc.’s social media reach extends to more than 11-million people working at various levels of retail in North America, and that reach is constantly expanding.
Best Retail Careers International Inc. also offers education to retailers seeking out talent — Suzanne Sears offers to teach internal recruiters how to use digital and social media for staffing, including how to sort through potential hires using an Applicant Tracking System.
If you are a retailer who is curious to learn more about Retail Staffing Canada’s membership-based recruiting, fill in the form below and Ms. Sears will get back to you as soon as possible.
