ABOUT STAFFING is excited to announce the launch of RESPECT IN THE WORKPLACE certification for AS Candidates! We have exclusively partnered with Respect Group Inc. to ensure that all of the candidates we place are Respect in the Workplace certified. This means that all of the candidates you hire through About Staffing have been trained to:

  • Improve team communication
  • Strengthen employee retention
  • Comply with the Canadian Labour Code
  • Enhance organizational health
  • Increase morale
  • Reduce absenteeism
  • Mitigate legal liability
  • Create stronger corporate culture and reputation
  • Increase productivity

About Staffing believes Respect in the Workplace will enable your organization and the people within to help make appropriate choices when interacting in the work environment, and know what to do as well as feel safe to act, when they see or experience something that isn’t right. Many businesses throughout North America are making this training a requirement amongst their employees and we are proud to be the first staffing agency in Canada to get on board.

At About Staffing all of our internal employees are Respect in the Workplace certified and will be able to help answer any questions you might have regarding this topic. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch should you have any further questions. The official launch date for About Staffing’s Respect in the Workplace program is
September 1, 2015.
