Our Story

Slate Personnel has been matching employees to employers since 1964! With extensive experience and vast labour market knowledge, Slate is one of today’s leading agencies servicing Edmonton and surrounding areas with temporary and permanent placements.

Slate Personnel will handle the administrative burden associated with hiring a new employee. We’ll also save your company valuable time and money.

We leverage our recruiting and advertising costs across multiple clients and are constantly searching for skilled individuals. We employ multiple recruiting tactics including advertising, direct recruiting, networking and computerized databases to maintain a large pool of applicants. Access to these resources enables us to locate a candidate for you quickly and cost effectively.

Quality placements are extremely important to Slate, and we firmly stand behind our placements, monitoring their progress on a regular basis. Should any candidate placed by Slate prove to be unsuitable, we will replace that candidate under our Guarantee, saving you the hassle of replacing on your own.

Our motto is “Simply the Best”, because we will always go above and beyond to ensure we find the most qualified person for your job.
