Friday Professional Group
Established in 1987, Friday Professional Group Inc. is well recognized in the industry as a friendly firm that provides superior employment solutions to Calgarians. Contrary to expectations, we're not named for the most popular day of the work week. Our name comes from the story of Robinson Crusoe and his man Friday - an inspiring character who worked tirelessly to aide Crusoe's success. Like Crusoe's devoted friend, we at FRIDAY are fiercely dedicated to our clients and do everything we can to assist in their success.
Twenty five years ago, we set out to build a company that focuses on delivering the ultimate user experience and everything we do is built on this principle. This is how our customers discover who we are, and getting to know you is the simplest and most powerful way for us to leverage the candidate and client relationship.
We challenge the conventional formula to create a new approach and process. We are committed to our partners from the first meeting through to the final placement, giving you direct access to the people actually doing the work for you, and do our level best to over deliver on our service.
