Durham Recruiting Macleans Canadian Business

Congratulations to BACD Client, Durham Recruiting for being recognized as the 15th fastest growing company in Canada by Maclean’s and Canadian Business Magazine

On September 12, 2019, Canadian Business and Maclean’s magazine ranked Durham Recruiting as #15 on the 2019 Startup 50 ranking of Canada’s Top New Growth Companies and #1 within the HR Industry! Startup 50 winners will be profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business published with Maclean’s magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com. To celebrate this achievement, Durham Recruiting will be hosting a celebration party on Friday, September 20 at 12:00. Come join them at Core 21, 21 Simcoe Street South, in Oshawa to congratulate them on these amazing achievements!

Durham Recruiting has been a business in Oshawa since 2017 and has grown significantly since then, becoming a vital part of the downtown core. Durham Recruiting has dedicated their life work and business to matching people (many of them commuters) with local businesses focusing on the ‘right’ fit for both parties. The Downtown Oshawa BIA is thrilled to see downtown businesses thrive and prosper. Durham Recruiting has shown how successful start-ups can be in our core.

“The 2019 Startup 50 winners suggest the future of Canadian entrepreneurship is extremely bright. They have brought new offerings to market, created indelible brands and disrupted established business models—all in an extremely short period of time,” says Beth Fraser, Startup 50 and Growth 500 program manager. “Any aspiring entrepreneur should look to their stories for inspiration.”
