About Us

We are the catalyst for sustainable talent development excellence

Our Story

In 2000, Lisa Smith, founder and CEO of The Staff Room, set out to create a GTA-based HR consulting firm that would provide excellent advice and quality services to local businesses. Since that time, The Staff Room has become a well respected and award winning name within the human resources industry.

Due to the overwhelming response, Lisa made the decision to expand the firm’s focus to include both HR and human capital, in order to be a better resource to her clients.

Today, that vision has grown to include more focused services which help those in search of human resource consulting, staffing, or career coaching in Ontario, turn to the quality advice offered by The Staff Room.
