West-Can Human Resource Solutions was started in 1997 by Tim Silversides out of the realization that small / medium businesses find benefit in allowing an HR service provider to focus on their HR function which in turn frees up the business to focus on, well, their business!
West-Can HR started providing recruitment and organizational support, and then added in temporary or contingent labor services, filling an additional need Westman businesses had in flexing their workforce as demand requires.
In recent years as the team has grown and new skills developed further organizational assessments, strategic planning, and other business improvement services have followed.
To rest assured that every Westman business and job seeker know what we do and call on us when the need arises.
To provide effective solutions and services that drive exceptional value for all our clients!
