Toronto recruiting company ranks on Profit Hot 50 and Profit W100

Exceptional results, knowing the market is key, says owner

TORONTO, Oct. 14 /CNW/ - Poly Placements, a Toronto recruiting company specializing in IT recruiting, ranked No.6 on the Profit Hot 50 last month and was announced as ranking No.66 on the Profit W100 today. How did a recruiting company perform so well in an economy in which other recruiting companies downsized?

"Our success has been based on two key factors," says Virginia Poly, President and owner of Poly Placements, located at Yonge and Davisville and in business since 2006. "We've focused on IT recruiting, an area we know well. More importantly, we believe that the right people can make a real difference to our clients' businesses."

Poly says that it's this focus on specialization and results which have kept clients returning even in a down market. And their growth bears this out: 3-year revenue growth of 827%.

"It's true that IT recruiting has slowed down in the past year," she says, citing Poly Placements' recent study, in which 73% of recruiters and hiring managers reported a slowdown between January and September 2009. "But for 27% of organizations, IT recruiting has increased - in some cases quite significantly. Our clients come to us because they know we'll have the best people for their organizations."

With two significant achievements in the past month - ranking No.6 on the Profit Hot 50 and No.66 on the Profit W100 - what's next for the company?

"Well," says Poly with a smile, "80% of recruiters and hiring managers say that IT recruiting is going to increase in the next 3 months - so we expect to continue to grow."
