The Staffing Team You Can TrustExperienced. Driven. Reliable.
We are Rina Schaefer and Renée Laviolette, the dynamic duo behind RnR’s name. We first met in 2006 while working together as temporary staff for a large medical conference in Toronto. Soon after, we began working directly for staffing and recruitment companies, as colleagues and teammates, and successfully booked events all over Canada. Together, we spent 3 years running a customer service department in which we staffed national promotional tours extending from Victoria BC to Halifax, NS, small to large conferences at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, supported events for large organizations such as the NFL, Blackberry, Sabra Hummus, Soda Stream, and many more. We worked so well together that we quickly became known to our employers as “RnR” – the team they could trust to get the job done quickly and expertly.
We are proud of the reputation and solid partnership we have built together. In 2014, we made the choice to solidify our partnership and by starting RnR Staffing & Consulting Inc.. Our business represents who we are – an effective and reliable business team built on the bonds of a strong partnership.
Our Mission and Values
Our mission is to be the “go to” staffing company for small businesses, event planners and organizations all over Canada. We aim to build a company that is national in scope but with the reliability and trust you can only get from a small business. We are driven by our personal values of being competitive, fair, honourable and reliable.
“Our goal is to make certain that every event or job placement we book meets or exceeds our client’s expectations. We have the experience and expertise to fulfill our clients’ needs by finding and staffing the right candidate for your organization or event.”
