Q4 – Corporate Recruiters Newsletter Winter 2017
Every year Don Safnuk, Corporate Recruiters’ CEO & President, offers to make a charitable donation on behalf of our clients to one of SVP Vancouver’s grantees. Don’s goal is to increase awareness of Social Venture Partners and the wonderful not-for-profits they fund and support.
We are inviting all Corporate Recruiters’ newsletter followers to select a charity from Social Venture Partners (SVP) Vancouver 2017 Investees, and Don will donate up to $10,000 collectively to these worthy non-profits.
Together, your selections will shape the scope of the donation so that it reflects the interests of the Corporate Recruiters community.

Best wishes for the holiday season!
When you look around your community, what do you see?
Chances are you see some major issues. Schools struggling to make the grade. Children living in families without the means for nutritious food. Resource strapped nonprofits. Every one a David to their particular Goliath.
At SVP, all we see is potential.
There is indeed a chasm between the challenges we face today, and the scale at which we are addressing those challenges. These problems aren’t going to solve themselves. There are no silver bullets. And throwing money at them isn’t going to make them go away. Clearly, no single person has the answer.
But what if every single person steps up to the plate?
What happens if you take the potential of every individual, connect them directly to the people working on the issues they are passionate about, and challenge them to make a difference?

Like most of you we are bullish about 2018. Corporate Recruiters is a natural barometer for BC’s tech community and we have never been busier. Baring a financial bubble bursting or a catastrophic global incident 2018 should be terrific!
Of course too much of a good thing too quickly can bring challenges, and we are seeing that too. The pressure to find highly skilled and affordable talent is intensifying and clearly 2018 will be even more difficult than 2017.
