The Staffing Team You Can TrustExperienced. Driven. Reliable.
We are Rina Schaefer and Renée Laviolette, the dynamic duo behind RnR’s name. We first met in 2006 while working together as temporary staff for a large medical conference in Toronto. Soon after, we began working directly for staffing and recruitment companies, as colleagues and teammates, and successfully booked events all over Canada. Together, we spent 3 years running a customer service department in which we staffed national promotional tours extending from Victoria BC to Halifax, NS, small to large conferences at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, supported events for large organizations such as the NFL, Blackberry, Sabra Hummus, Soda Stream, and many more. We worked so well together that we quickly became known to our employers as “RnR” – the team they could trust to get the job done quickly and expertly.
We are proud of the reputation and solid partnership we have built together. In 2014, we made the choice to solidify our partnership and by starting RnR Staffing & Consulting Inc.. Our business represents who we are – an effective and reliable business team built on the bonds of a strong partnership.
After much success with RnR, in April 2018 we are extremely excited to be launching a Beauty Division titled RBeauty. RBeauty is a one-stop mobile Hair and Makeup Service aligning clients with Beauty Professionals in the Greater Toronto Area (and coming soon nationwide). RBeauty will provide a stress free, client focused beauty solution to those requiring Hair and/or Makeup Services.
