20 Years Of Matrix HR (Matrix Labour Leasing)

Beginnings Of A Successful Business
The Business In Calgary article highlights the story of Matrix Labour Leasing from its humble beginnings. Shannon Warren was a tradesperson who knew first-hand the flaws in the trades space and instead of being discouraged, he saw an opportunity for growth and improvement. He founded his business and put in the hard work of establishing a reputable staffing agency designed to help tradespeople receive fair treatment and find positions they would thrive in, which also greatly benefits the companies these candidates are paired with. As employee satisfaction rises, so does productivity and profit, and this mutual benefit from ideal work placement and employee treatment is the backbone of the success of Matrix Labour Leasing.

The Matrix Difference
Matrix Labour Leasing serves to improve the trades for all, offering educational and apprenticeship opportunities for aspiring tradespeople as well as highly skilled and dedicated staff to improve client success. Beyond offering staffing services, Matrix Labour Leasing offers opportunities for candidates to expand their knowledge and their resumes while supplying companies with amazing staffing services, payroll funding, and employer of record services.

In its 20 years of cooperation, Matrix Labour Leasing has focused on uplifting tradespeople and various communities. By partnering with the Gitga’at Development Corporation to form Gitga’at Matrix Workforce Services LTD (GMWS), Matrix can offer local First Nations communities job opportunities that provide stability and growth through initiatives like apprenticeships and sponsorships. Matrix also works with ACSESS and other partners to facilitate continual industry excellence. Through perpetual growth and concrete proof that fair treatment for workers and community partnerships facilitates better company outcomes, Matrix Labour Leasing is paving the way for a better, stronger trades space.
