What Our Members Say

Robert Hamburger

As an HPN member since early 2021, I have nothing but great things to say about the organization.

This dynamic, constantly growing organization nonetheless maintains a focus on the individual. It shows in the high win rate in placing resources at opportunities across Canada. This is obviously a result of showcasing a person’s talents and understanding  a good fit to a potential opportunity/organization. It worked for me as a contractor and they had me placed quickly.

Did I mention that HPN pays monthly invoices rapidly? No more waiting several weeks to get paid.

Couple that with very low placement fees, and you have a winner.
