We have increased minimum wages, stopped using temp workers (we hire everyone directly now), use every staffing service in the area (private and non-profit), and spent $40k last year on a marketing campaign to attract talent. Nothing has consistently worked except for Blue Branch. Blue Branch’s solution provided us 20 qualified workers quickly - we have found general labourers to licensed electricians through Blue Branch. We also love that this solution is helping people and communities in other parts of Canada. This is a real win-win solution for our business and Canada.” — Tara Ross, Stackpole International
