What a Big (Fish Staffing) Summer…

Mike Rutherford
















As we welcome back the Fall season and say a (very warm- 30 degrees to be exact) goodbye to the summer… we would just like to recap on all the many accomplishments, highlights, events, and celebrations both within the business and the community!

Firstly, we would like to acknowledge the Business Highlights and Updates: 

  • We increased our client base exponentially each week over the summer months. This provided the ability to place candidates in a very broad scope of industries such as Finance, Oil & Gas, Commercial Real Estate, Sports & Entertainment, Information Technology, and Industrial.
  • We have had record weeks for hours 5 weeks in a row! 
  • We are constructing new quality controls to implement into our candidate placement process
  • We are currently working on a new service line which will be announced in Mid October… Stay tuned

We would also like to warmly welcome Nicole, our new Administrative Assistant. We are so excited to have you a part of the Big Fish team!

As always, Big Fish Staffing loves to reach out beyond the office doors and support the community in any way they can. There were so many opportunities during Summer ’17 for Big Fish to give back and help raise a sufficient amount of money in support of a variety of charitable events such as: The CUPS Breakfast ($20,000 directly raised!) Brain Tumour walk, Fresh Start motor bike ride, Canadian Red Cross BBQ, Calgary Stampeder’s Alumni Golf Tournament, and the Stampeder’s 1992 Grey Cup reunion. One of our recruiters Bonnie Mo, supported the Chinese Canadian Petroleum Society- the organization she is actively and directly involved in. Our very own Donna Kuhnen also volunteered at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre!

There is no surprise that Big Fish is all about business… but we also love to have FUN! There was absolutely no shortage of fun this summer with all the Canada birthday celebrations and gatherings around the city! There are Stampeder’s tailgates, food trucks/festivals, the Calgary Stampede Parade/ Calgary Stampede and so many concerts! It is the perfect season to kick back and snack on Spolumbo’s and watch Global Fest or the more recent Solar Eclipse. Though it is rather bittersweet saying farewell to the long hot summer and welcome the classic Calgary season of “Fall”, (do not say early winter too loudly) looking back it is truly amazing to ponder on all the amazing experiences with more to surely come!

Never forget to give us a call or reach out for any Temporary or Full-time staffing needs… we promise, you will be glad you did!
