Activating a better future of work

Most staffing agencies have suffered from the same technology challenges: complicated or outdated systems that make it hard to be agile in a rapidly evolving industry. They’re weighed down by broken processes while the market speeds on without them.

We knew it was time for a change.

At ActivateStaff, we set out to do things differently. We provide candidate-centric technology that helps agencies build loyalty, cut costs and compete in a market centred around flexibility and transparency.

Welcome to the new world of work. We’re excited to keep building it with you.

Empowering agencies since 2016

Our product journey
begins

After mass layoffs in the Canadian retail market, our founder Rohan created a company to transform the way people find work using technology.

Partnering with staffing
agencies

Instead of continuing to build our own two-sided labour marketplace, we began working with staffing agencies to solve their deployment problems.

Recognition from the
government

After early traction proved our product had the ability to secure employment for thousands of people, we received government funding to further our impact.

A renewed focus on
healthcare

Understanding the challenges and opportunities in healthcare staffing, we began to purpose-build a healthcare version of our product.

Official healthcare
launch

In July of 2021, we officially launched our healthcare product across agencies of all sizes and a variety of use cases and saw immediate impact.

ActivateStaff
is born

After five years of building and delivering our solution to staffing agencies, we changed our name from TimeSaved to ActivateStaff.
