Toronto, ON, February 8, 2024 – Today, strategic consulting firm, Connecting for Results (CFR), is pleased to announce the organization has entered into a partnership with Zel Human Capital Inc.

Through a relationship with sister company Aikinu, ZHC also provides contract recruitment services when interim roles are required and/or clients are looking for short to medium term solutions. Along with their clients, ZHC shares in both the risk and rewards inherent in successful talent acquisition and/or talent assessment campaigns.
