In 2001, a boutique, small but mighty recruitment agency named BlueSky Personnel Solutions officially opened its doors. Two decades later, we are celebrating a milestone anniversary this year, reminiscing fondly at our past adventures, and looking excitedly at what’s to come in this industry we love.
Here is a special message from our president, our very own Julie Labrie:
We are working on some exciting initiatives in celebration of our 20th anniversary this year and we look forward to sharing them with you in the coming weeks and months.
In the interim, some of our past and current employees, suppliers and clients have sent us messages of congratulations from across Canada, the US, and even as far as Australia. Their words have really touched our hearts and we wanted to share them with you:
- “I’ve worked directly with Julie from BlueSky Personnel Solutions for a few years. The support provided by Julie and her team are always exceptional, whether they have provided candidates for an entry level role or executive role. BlueSky’s service is unmatched. Happy anniversary!” – Julie Atkinson
- “Julie, congratulations to you and your team at BlueSky Personnel Solutions on arriving at your 20-year anniversary! You’ve done it through hard work, through developing amazing partnerships and providing service that is unparalleled. I consider it a privilege to have worked with you over the last 20 years, and I look forward to continuing to partner with you in the years ahead. May you have many, many more years of success!” – Doreen Harvey
- “It feels like yesterday that we started working together. Thank you Julie for helping us build our business. We look forward to our continued partnership. Congratulations Julie and the BlueSky team on 20 years of success!” – Kelly McDavid
- “I had the pleasure of working with Maryanne and the BlueSky Personnel team when she helped me find my dream job. Almost 2 years later, I’m still employed by that company, and this is all because Maryanne had a sense that I’d be a great fit. I’d recommend BlueSky Personnel Solutions any day, in a heartbeat!” – Cristina Spassatempo
- “Julie Labrie est non seulement un fleuron Torontois-Québécois mais au même titre que le bureau du Québec à Toronto, BlueSky Personnel est une ressource fiable, mais surtout un partenaire expert essentiel au développement des affaires et des services francophones depuis,…20 ans plus tard – Je t’admire depuis et t’apprécie pour ton savoir-faire!” Mélanie DeCoteau (Translation: Julie Labrie is not only a Toronto-Quebec flagship, but she works like “The Quebec office” in Toronto. BlueSky Personnel has been a reliable resource and an essential, expert partner in business development using French-language services since 2001. Twenty years later – I still admire and appreciate you for your knowledge and expertise!)
- “What I love about working at BlueSky Personnel Solutions is that we’re not just another staffing agency. Sure, our niche, bilingual (French/English) expertise sets us aside from others right off the top, but we believe in cultivating client relationships as well as the candidate experience. BlueSky has a very strong client base and most of our clients have been working with our team for over a decade. This speaks volumes to the culture in our organization, dedication and quality of what we do. It’s a lot of fun to work here too! To Julie and my colleagues, thank you and happy anniversary! – Maryanne Mesic
- “Julie never gives up, has unending energy and is an exceptional person on many levels. I tell my friends that Julie could be a motivational speaker teaching her principles for success. I have said many times how incredible she is and could be a mentor especially to entrepreneurs and anyone thinking of starting their own business. Imagine that Julie and her team have not missed a beat through this past Covid-19 year – incredible! My heartfelt congratulations on the 20th anniversary of BlueSky go to Julie and her team! I am very proud to have passed the business on to Julie.” – Beverly McMaster
