1) Temporary & Temp to Hire: An easy and integrated hiring solution with proven results!

Utilized by the majority of ABL customers and we are proud of it!  Over 80% of all types of our client companies utilize temp-to-hire as their method of finding employees who are the right fit and have demonstrated commitment to their company. 

2) Direct Hire:

This solution is best suited to an executive level position. A one-time fee is charged, based on a percentage of the salary offer made to the candidate. A replacement guarantee is included in this solution. ABL utilizes our extensive North American network to attract and present candidates for these specialized roles. 

3) Accelerated Hire: Comprehensive way to match absolutely the right hire for your company!

From manufacturing and logistics, to office, call centre and retail,  this method is preferred by ABL client companies who want all parts of the hiring process from attraction to formal offer handled to ensure the best candidate is captured by the company. It works particularly well for entry-level to mid-range salaried positions. This solution includes a built-in guarantee, and the candidate immediately joins your company payroll.   A weekly rate will be billed over a period of 13 weeks. This option will allow you to attract people who are already working, and to better retain the employee, as they are directly working for you.

4) Custom Hire Solutions: Cost-effective method to attract the complete pool of available candidates for your senior level position!

This unique solution is an ideal customized solution for ABL SME customers to maximize the attraction capabilities for VP and Director level positions while promoting their company brand and controlling the hiring process.
