We have used the services of Platinum Personnel for several temporary hires, and some of these have become permanent as the caliber of employees has been excellent. Platinum Personnel has saved us time and money with their pre-screening services and their ability to match candidates to the positions we have had available. I would recommend them to any size of business that is looking to hire qualified candidates that are able to bring value to their company in the shortest time possible. Thanks!

When we decided to open another terminal in West Kelowna, we enlisted the services of Platinum Personnel. We believed we would have more success using a local party for recruitment in this region. One year later we have added 6 new team members from admin to executives. Platinum’s professionalism shines through in their due diligence process and they truly spent the time to get to know our organization. Proper recruitment leads to higher success in retention. Thank you to the Platinum Team for strengthening our organization.

We have been retaining Platinum Personnel for the nearly ten years. Platinum have successfully aided in the recruitment of many staff members, including our most recent addition, our CFO. The CFO position is the most important position that we have entrusted to Platinum. The process of selection was difficult, as candidates were presented from across Canada and the USA. We interviewed many candidates, all of whom could have done the job. I was not satisfied with accepting a good candidate, because we required the best of breed, with levels of competence that is seldom seen in local organizations on any size.
Throughout the process, the Staff of Platinum would put forward candidates, outlining attributes in narrative form and also through the regular documentation. When we felt that certain candidates may be worthy of a job offer, platinum would verify the CV to ensure accuracy. The last thing one needs is to hire someone based on exaggerations in the CVs! It was clear that Platinum made selections for us with the clear eye toward future success of our organization and not the immediate transaction.
The end result with our CFO selection was very positive! There is no doubt that, without Platinum helping us, we could not have identified this staff member. We appreciate Platinum for listening to our many requests. We are grateful that they never gave up with this difficult assignment. Although we have worked with other Personnel Agencies in Vancouver and Toronto, we are consistently more satisfied with our experience with Platinum Personnel.
