Renaissance Personnel first opened its doors in 1997. Renaissance Personnel has been connecting great people with meaningful jobs to the Chatham, London & Windsor areas ever since then.
Renaissance Personnel is a full service employment agency. We coordinate permanent and temporary placements in hundreds of career categories ranging from General Labour to Senior Executive and virtually every level in between.
Renaissance Personnel was incorporated in March 1997 by the current founder and President, Chris Bechard. Chris brings a unique perspective to the employment services industry. Employed in the manufacturing sector for 17 years, his career path was anything but typical. Starting as an Industrial Machinist building engineering prototypes he was promoted to Employee Participation Coordinator, Industrial Relations Administrator and ultimately to Human Resources Manager. The combination of technical and human resources knowledge provides a valuable foundation in the complex world of recruitment. Also in the role of HR Manager, Chris was a customer to numerous Employment Agencies ranging from Windsor to London. Through the eyes of a customer, he developed new operating principles for Renaissance Personnel that have become standard practice for many organizations in the region.
From humble beginnings at a home office with one employee, the company experienced phenomenal growth, expanding to twenty Recruitment Specialists operating four divisions in Chatham, London and Windsor. Annual sales grew at an average of 68% reaching $10 million in FY2004, just 6 years after incorporation.
The growth of Renaissance Personnel is unique because the company has never employed a sales representative. At last count, Renaissance has provided employment services to 1000's of businesses of every size and description, almost entirely through referrals and relationship development.
