CONNECTING EMPLOYERS WITH TALENT

On that note, every employer-to-employee relationship is delicate because we are all human. Therefore, by nature, it takes a deep understanding of human connectivity to foster a healthy and efficient workplace culture. In short, it is not merely about checking off a long list of qualifications but rather ensuring those you intend to hire are ideally suited from a collective personality, passion, and work ethic standpoint. Skills that cannot simply be taught need to be developed to the point where they benefit the employee and, through their efforts, the employer.
This is the primary focus of our operations here at True North HR, positioning your brand as one that ensures employees are happy, healthy, and set up for success. Amidst the highly competitive acquisition and recruitment landscape, we level the playing field, helping you develop an irresistible value proposition while ensuring comprehensive vetting preferences are adhered to.

We can assist in the following ways and more:

  • Candidate risk assessments
  • Recruitment feasibility studies
  • Market positioning
  • Brand messaging and posting updates
  • Compliance adherence
  • Temporary and/or permanent staffing
  • Addressing labour shortages
  • Advisory and tips on interviewing, vetting, training, and more
  • Personalized onboardings

The results we are known for are achieved by adapting to and/or refining your established culture – both internally and customer-facing – along with thorough market intelligence analysis. We know who to reach out to, when to do so, and whether they are a viable candidate for any specific roles you have in mind.

TALENT ACQUISITION

Our team is fully prepared to help yours grow and thrive with a variety of talent acquisition services. These include drafting and carefully refining job postings while ensuring full compliance as needed. In addition, we carry out in-depth candidate screening, incorporating behavioural, credential, reference, certification, criminal, and various other checks. No detail is insignificant to us.

Other duties we can perform include conducting interviews on your behalf. Or we can help gauge whether your internal staff could use a refresher on interviewing best practices. True North HR is also known for our deeply customized and carefully planned onboarding services, personalized to identify and address the needs of employers and candidates on both sides of the table.

OUR RECRUITING PROCESS

Once we have a crystal-clear understanding of your vision and a carefully strategized recruitment plan, which we’ll refine closely with your team, we will publish the relevant job postings. Candidates who respond are filtered through our comprehensive vetting process. Should you wish for us to perform initial and/or follow-up interviews, we can happily do so at this stage.
Throughout the recruiting process, we will provide informed recommendations based on various factors indicated in specific applicants, such as whether their skillset or personality is suitable for the role. Should you decide on a particular candidate and wish to proceed to the onboarding stage, we can assist you in various ways. These include setting up any necessary training, maximizing engagement, retention-focused precautions, and more. As we carry out staffing and recruiting services as required, we remain open to any necessary tweaks that will benefit your business further. It’s a smooth, transparent, proactive approach to talent acquisition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your organization’s needs are unique; no two operations are precisely the same. Regardless of the product or service you offer, it’s important to rely on the individuals you trust to fill roles at all levels. Our staffing and recruitment services are ideal for distilling the essence of your operations, refining talent acquisition and retention strategies, and making life better for your employees. This means less guesswork, more legwork, and more success for you and your candidates.
Before even seeing a resume, vetting prospective hires requires developing a deep understanding of the role you wish to fill. That’s what we do first at True North HR, as the insights gained help to inform any refinements made to your recruitment processes. Once we have a solid understanding of what you need in terms of credentials, experience, and personality traits, we can formulate a compelling posting that better caters to pools of applicants suited for the role(s) in question. After this, we proceed with risk assessments, background checks, screening interviews, and other vetting-related processes.
Our goal is to minimize risk and maximize the reward for your operations and employees. That means fostering a supportive, enriching, and positive workplace culture, which can be achieved through our advisory services, feasibility studies, and other unique means. Professional recruitment services are also handy for streamlining your organization’s recruiting, vetting, and hiring processes, ensuring that new hires get the onboarding, training, and continued support they deserve with no questions left unasked. In addition, our services make it possible to personalize the employee experience within your walls – all while formulating a welcoming and attractive brand image for prospective hires from the outside.
This varies depending on a myriad of factors. First, there’s the complexity of the role itself; do you require more experience, special certification, or the need to adhere to strict compliances that govern your operations? Also, what about performance expectations in alignment with compensation and benefits? Are these offerings attractive to the higher-level talent you seek to attract and retain? In addition, how much work is needed to modernize or completely overhaul your recruitment, vetting, onboarding, training, and talent retention strategies? The complete process could take anywhere from several weeks to even a few months, depending on the roadblocks or hurdles faced along the way, though our services aim to make improvements within your organization that lead to even more significant time and cost efficiency.

There are several necessary steps along the way, each encompassing certain practices, protocols, and processes that must be kept flexible and scalable with your operations to ensure they remain viable. Examples of such steps include the following:

  • Identification of hiring needs, role responsibilities, and feasibility of the position in alignment with operating costs and available resources
  • Advisory and optimizations/refinements to established internal processes (if needed)
  • Creation of a compelling, relevant job posting that provides candidates with all the context and insights required to make an informed decision on their end
  • The influx of applications, followed by screening and vetting prior to interview outreach
  • Initial interview outreach/scheduling with applicants who pass the vetting
  • Deliberations and advisory on which applicants should proceed onto the next round
  • Secondary and, if applicable, tertiary interview stages
  • Presentation of offer after final deliberations on the best-received candidates
  • Employee onboarding, training, and active support to ensure maximum chances of success
  • Analysis of recruitment strategy/feasibility studies to determine whether changes need to be made to processes or overall approach for future hires
