Groom & Associates Announces New Focus and Launch of New Website

October 23, 2019 GMT

MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 23, 2019--

With the launch of their new website today, Groom & Associates, a respected Canadian recruitment and staffing firm, announces their deviation from general recruiting to recruiting specifically for the IT and AI, Lifesciences, Engineering and Industrial, and Finance sectors.

Headed by Karen Groom, Groom & Associates will be one of the very few Canadian recruitment firms whose recruiters themselves have educational backgrounds in engineering, science and technology.

“One of our major differentiators is that the recruiters on our team have extensive experience and education in the STEM industries we serve. Due to their education and work backgrounds, they’re better able to connect with candidates, and understand the nature of a role compared to recruiters who might only possess general knowledge. ” - KAREN GROOM

As Canada’s tech and pharma sectors rapidly expand, the demand for specialists seems to be greater than the supply, and more and more companies are turning to staffing firms such as Groom & Associates to fulfill their hiring needs. While these fields tend to be male-dominated, women are increasingly opting for STEM careers – something that many of the recruiters at Groom can relate to.

“As more women enter these male-dominated fields, they’re encountering a variety of challenges – many of which we’re able to address on a daily basis. A number of our recruiters are women with education and work experience in science and technology, and are able to guide other women throughout their careers, as well as consult with companies to ensure their workplace is inclusive for female employees.” -KAREN GROOM.
