This year, The Bagg Group celebrates its 40th anniversary. In four decades, there have been many lessons learned, as well as a lot of growth and innovation.
But the best thing that we achieved over 40 years? The great matches between more than 57,263 people and employers in the GTA. That’s a lot of happy people placed.
To look forward, sometimes you have to look back. Rewind to 1971.
Magic was in the air. The Habs made a stunning upset to win the Stanley Cup, Three Dog Night’s Joy to the World topped the charts, Walt Disney World opened in Orlando.
And a man named Keith Bagg got the idea that anything is possible. He set up Keith Bagg Personnel and with Mary Bagg as his partner, they decided to do things differently in the staffing industry -they would lead from the heart.
Today, this approach remains the DNA of our company. It guides our work with our own employees, our clients and our candidates.
What does leading by the heart look like? To qualify it, we could list our numerous awards that include:
- Employer of Choice
- Best Staffing Agency, as rated by candidates.
- Best Staffing Agency for customer satisfaction, as rated by clients.
- Community Service Awards
There’s no award for Best Staff Appreciation Days, but ours are worthy of mention. We work hard, but we play hard because we know that having fun as a team makes the heart of a company beat stronger.
But in business, everything, at some point, must come down to the math.
And we’ve done the math. Because we put our heart into our work and accept nothing less than a happy fit for both the candidate and the employer, we sustain our reputation for delivering the most engaged full-time candidates, temporary employees and contractors.
And this is where the math kicks in. As our clients know from working with us, a happy, engaged employee is not an island of one.
Instead, when the right person is in the job, their positive impact is multiplied by 10 at least. They inspire colleagues, family members, and people in their community. We calculate that the work of The Bagg Group over the past 40 years has made a positive impact on hundreds of thousands of lives.
That is something to celebrate. We look forward to placing many more happy people in organizations across the GTA, and to continuing the ripple effect that boosts business and spirits.
