About

 

Executive Search

For over 20 years, Barry has been building client relationships and direct recruiting mid to senior level management. His search skills include finding high performance individuals and creating partnerships together with his clients, who are some of the strongest companies in the manufacturing/engineering/service arenas.

 

Value for Money

Our clients often express concerns about the high cost of executive search. Barry’s model is highly cost effective and identifies higher qualified candidates. Other Executive search firms often work on a commission in the 18 – 25% range of base salary for each successful placement, some even 30%. Predominantly they work on a contingency basis, meaning they are paid contingent upon them successfully filling a position. Consequently, lower commissioned or difficult, time-consuming placements are neglected in favour of high salaried or easier to fill placements.

 

Connors & Associates Overview

Barry’s approach is unique since he actually headhunts to fill your available positions.
I use a headhunting methodology drastically reducing the placement cycle, expanding the pool of qualified and vetted candidates at less than half the cost ensuring that those presented are properly qualified and of the highest quality.
Here’s a brief summary of my methods.

  • Non-exclusive
  • No Limit on Number or Type of Searches for Twelve Months
  • Only 10% of Hiring Salary
  • 100% – 6 Month Replacement Guarantee
  • Full Interviews / References / Detailed Presentations
  • Direct Headhunting – No Job Boards
  • Offer Management

Q:

Why did you choose REM?

 

A:

I was looking for a web firm with a bit of “critical mass” relative to the size of their operation. I sensed that REM was well run and organized but not at the sacrifice of creativity. I also equated slightly larger size with a larger experience gene pool, and greater likelihood of being a viable entity in the future should my business grow.

 


Q:

What was it like working with REM?

 

A:

The two gentlemen I worked with (Sean S. and Todd) were very accommodating and managed the fine line well between providing tangible, experienced-based technical input while still allowing me maximum input relative creativity and esthetics. Meeting time commitments was better than I was anticipating.  I also sensed that they were invested like I was, in making my website a unique interesting site. They seemed genuinely proud of what we were creating. This made working with the both of them actually quite enjoyable which I think shows up within the web site.

Q:

Why did you choose REM?

 

A:

We selected REM WEB SOLUTIONS after searching and scrutinizing several websites of firms that build websites. We were impressed with the content of their website and the various clients who they built websites for. Our initial conversations developed a sense of confidence that this was a company we would like to work with.

 


Q:

What was it like working with REM?

 

A:

Developing our website from the initial conversations to the launch date took more time than we expected, totally due to our own circumstances. Nevertheless, we appreciated the patience and concern for detail by the team at REM Web Solutions, resulting in the production of a website we are very proud to show off. The site is truly representative of who we are and what we do. The development process of strict timelines was impressive.

 

Thank you to the multi-disciplinary team at REM Web Solutions for a job well done and for making the process positive and enjoyable. We would highly recommend any company to make REM Web Solutions their resources of choice to build them a quality and attractive website.

About

Here at Sheet Metal Workers International Association Local 562 (SMWIA 562) we are a group of members who do sheet metal work.  Primarily in the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional side of the construction industry; factories, schools, hospitals etc.  We have a group of signatory contractors that draw their workforce from our hall.  The contractors call the hall and draw from “available for hire” skilled workers.  We do regular training and upgrading for our members, welding, safety training etc.  Apprentices that we take in now and again come into the hall and take an aptitude test, 70% passing grade puts them on the “available to start an apprenticeship” list.  Before they can start their apprenticeship, they will come to the hall, fill put all necessary paperwork and receive a work permit.

Q:

Why did you choose REM?

 

A:

Our website was in poor condition, both in usability and esthetics.  Drop down buttons not working and unable to make any updates ourselves.  Our selection to use REM was based on other companies that we had asked regarding service and ease of use.  REM was the answer to our website issues.

 


Q:

What was it like working with REM?

 

A:

Christine started our website, putting together a very clean look.  After the draft was finalized, Shauna took over and worked with the developers at REM to get everything working smoothly.  Any issues that we had were addressed promptly and corrected to our satisfaction.  The last part of the design was getting the Members Only section set up.  The Office Administrator needed to put in a section that would allow her to upload CSV files.  The training that was provided by Shauna was very easy to follow, anything that came up she had corrected in a timely manor. Communication in dealing with the team was excellent.  The WebWizard Control Panel is very easy to use, if we have any questions the support team is there to assist.  Having control over our website makes it very easy to communicate with our members, and manage content.  All being said we are very happy with the results of our new website and would not hesitate to recommend REM Web Solutions to any company looking to create or update a website.  The price that we agreed to, was excellent for the amount of work the team did for us.

Nelco Mechanical website on a computer monitor

 

About

Nelco Mechanical began its humble roots as a plumbing and heating company in 1906 in Hall's Lane, Kitchener, ON.

 

Nelco has been a trusted name since 1906.  Over the last 114 years of business there have been branding changes throughout those years.  Recently the ownership team reevaluated their mission statement, core values and principles.  Those old-time values, that started this great company have been true throughout its history. Not much has changed.  We still pride ourselves in quality, integrity and service. Those same ideals that those before us provided for our community and surrounding areas.

 

Those important values still ring true today and because of that we are returning to our roots and part of that is rebranding with the original logo that began Nelco so long ago. We believe it is timeless and it reflects and pays homage to those who have gone before us, who paved the way for us to carry the Nelco torch. For this reason, we are proud to introduce it once again.
