Is Your Business Prepared to Scale Quickly?

Imagine your business is doing well. You’re growing your customer base and you’ll need more supplies, more employees, right? But what happens when you grow fast – really fast? That’s the success story from a large Vancouver-based organization that recently won a large contract and needed more than 100 new workers in housekeeping and custodial. They needed smart, hard-working employees to not only fill these roles, but represent their brand – and that’s where we come in.

Open Door Group’s team of experienced employment advisors helped them fill positions for both full time and part time work. Some roles and responsibilities also required a degree of flexibility. Most important – a good attitude was prized more than work experience. Successful candidates were required to get to various clients’ sites to provide a wide range of cleaning services such as office cleaning, washroom cleaning, lunchroom cleaning, classroom cleaning, garbage removal, supply re-stocking, as well as hotel style housekeeping services.

Our team jumped right in, connecting our candidates with the right skills to the urgent vacancies. Our prescreening helped ensure only eligible candidates moved forward with job interviews,  and helped match the right people for this type of demanding position. But our help didn’t end there. Once a candidate was placed, we followed-up with the cleaning service to make sure it was a good fit. We kept an open dialog as the campaign continued and used the feedback to refine the quality of the applicants we put forward. It was our work before, during, and after the client was placed that helped find successful fits for this booming employer.
