By | Press | One Comment

TORONTO, ONTARIO – (Newswire – May 6) Peoplesource Search Group Inc. and The Finance Department Limited (TFDL) have entered into a strategic partnership agreement, which along with sister company People Store Staffing, will produce one of the largest private staffing operations in Canada.

The partnership will capitalize on industry growth opportunities and deliver continued service innovation and consistent, reliable operational excellence. The combined businesses will yield important benefits for suppliers, vendors, partners, clients, candidates and employees.

“Our strengths complement each other, which means that our partnership will allow us to serve our clients even better, and with a wider range of recruiting services”, said John Huxtable, President of The Finance Department Limited, adding that the partnership will leverage the strengths of each company and provide an enhanced presence in the Accounting & Finance Recruitment niche.

It will also better position both companies to navigate an evolving staffing industry in order to offer best-in-class staffing services to clients throughout Canada. “The partnership is an integral part of our high-growth consolidation strategy,” said Frank Cianciulli, CEO of Peoplesource Search Group. “This fits very well with our clients’ increasing needs for a full range of HR solutions across Canada, and it will add considerable depth to our operations, allowing us to offer even more specialized services within a much larger network of offices.

“A consolidation strategy is ideal for the highly fragmented staffing industry and we need to continue adjusting to thwart disruption.”

The companies will continue to seek out prospective acquisitions and partnerships that fit into the existing vision, integrity and company culture. Current annual sales of the companies are approaching $100 million and the improved alignment positions the businesses to make up the largest privately held staffing solutions operation in the country within five years.
