Delivering Quality Staffing and Optimizing Business Processes: Canvas Infotech Inc.

“If you pick the right people and give them the opportunity to spread their wings—and put compensation as a carrier behind it—you almost don’t have to manage them.” – Jack Welch

Some of the biggest challenges companies face today is finding candidates who hold certifications. Most projects these days require PMP (Project Management Professional) certified consultants, Certified Scrum Masters (CSM), ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) and CSPO (Certified Product Owner). The biggest ultimatum CIOs (Chief Information Officers) face these days are challenges to cost and time involved in hiring suitable candidates for their companies.
