what sets us apart

  • a tech startup spirit, with a reliable structure

    We built Randstad’s IT Solutions division out of our passion for innovation. We devise creative solutions to solve challenges and respond to the boldest ambitions of our clients.

    We work very well with the unknown, but you shouldn’t. You benefit from the structure of a large, process and data-driven organization that's worked with the biggest IT companies in Canada.

  • we have access to top-calibre IT talent

    We have 20 years of experience in the Canadian IT marketplace. In that time, we've built unparalleled networks with top IT talent in a tight employment market and developed talent market intelligence and data analytics.

  • we understand the importance of talent retention

    We strive to connect our clients with top talent, and we know that the key to every organization's success is the retention of their best talent. We provide the ability to develop skills in-house and retain talent after the project is done. Randstad IT Solutions supports the full-time transfer of any of our team to a full-time engagement with our customers.

    Teams operate using our agile methodology or customer-specific methodologies. We can provide agile coaching or transformational support as required.

    We can manage teams from either customer premises or in-house in our development environment. We offer different pricing models to reflect these different approaches: fixed price, milestone deliverables-based, time-and-materials etc.
