Eagle Announces the Launch of the Talent Development Centre

Professional Staffing Company Launches Online Resource Centre for Independent Contractors

Ottawa, ON, June 2, 2014 – Eagle Professional Resources (Eagle) is pleased to announce the launch of its online Talent Development Centre, a one-stop portal for independent contractors to get helpful information relating to their industry and business success. The professional staffing company officially launched the site today as an addition to its new industry-leading job board and it is expected to quickly become the prime business resource for independent IT contractors across Canada.

Eagle’s new Talent Development Centre is the end result of insight gathered through a survey conducted by the company over the winter months which explored the gaps between the independent contracting community and social media. Eagle surveyed over 1200 independent contractors and the response was phenomenal with a 14% response rate.

The Talent Development Centre will feature regular content updates from members of Eagle’s Executive Team, as well as insight on market trends, business regulations and tips and tools for being successful in the contracting space. In addition, the Talent Development Centre will list Eagle’s hottest job opportunities updated daily, link to relevant social media groups and have the option to opt-in to regular email updates.

“Eagle is committed to working with contractors to help them succeed and today’s launch of the Talent Development Centre validates that commitment,” said Eagle’s CEO, Kevin Dee. “It’s a unique milestone for Eagle and an innovation for the staffing industry. We’re excited to watch it grow.”

This most recent initiative complements Eagle’s current strategy to deliver an optimal online experience for contractors and job seekers alike. In January, the staffing company went live with an innovative job board that delivers an easy process to search for jobs and manage a professional profile. Furthermore, Eagle’s strong presence across all of the top social media platforms already provides contractors access to connect with the company any time.

The Talent Development Centre can be accessed through Eagle’s Job Board at https://jobs.eagleonline.com. Updates can also be found on social media, including Twitter (@eagleTalent) and Google+ (https://plus.google.com /109068586171972731285).
