A NEW NAME AND BRANDING FOR THE CSEPR PLACEMENT AGENCY
Hawkesbury, January 9th, 2014 – The Employment Services Centre (CSEPR) announced today that its placement agency now has its own name and branding. The Agency, which is in operation since 1998, will now be known a : Contak, Staffing Solutions. The decision for this new identity is based on the exponential increase in demand, the will to stop confusion between the services of the Centre and those of the Agency as well as the desire to maintain the growth strategy of the Agency.
“It was important that the new branding reflect the professionalism and seriousness of the Agency while staying far from the colors and shapes related to the CSEPR,” said André Roy, Executive Director for the Centre. “This brought us to choose a logo comprised of a broken scalene triangle in burgundy with the name of Contak in charcoal grey beside it. The support elements include a full scalene triangle, specific typography for the website and a visual presenting people lined-up for an interview. An interesting fact about the chosen visual is that we only see the legs of those people waiting. This proposed choice was strategic since it indicates to employers that Contak will find the right candidate for their position, but that their face cannot be revealed before the mandate is started,” to conclude Mr. Roy.
The new corporate image for Contak, Staffing Solutions was developed by the Chabo Communications team in Hawkesbury. Their mandate included, along with the corporate image, the development of support tools including the Agency’s corporate website.
Contak offers employers solutions for temporary placements, massive recruiting for special projects and temporary placements that can become permanent (temp to hire). In addition to these services, the Agency also offers an accounting management service for small businesses that have a need for it. Through this service, the Agency provides qualified and experienced accounting personnel who will ensure that this crucial function for the company is covered. This service is ideal for entrepreneurs and small businesses who can’t afford to add accounting personnel to their teams.
The Agency is always seeking good candidates. Those interested can view the list of positions offered and apply by registering free of charge on the Agency’s corporate website.
