Our organization specializes in international recruitment based on a 360° experience. H360° Resources maximizes the social integration and insertion of foreign workers while meeting the needs of the Canadian labour market.
Our mission can be summarized by metaphors of humans and hands: Canada needs a helping hand. Industries need hands. We extend a hand to people who come to lend us a hand.
H360° Resources emerged from a group of people with the desire to have a positive impact on human lives. We envisioned a project that would help and support the job market in Canada and, above all, revolutionize the social inclusion of newcomers and their potential for economic mobility.
We aim to be the bridge between people who join forces to create sustainable partnerships toward success! Our values: Humanity, Integrity, and Prosperity.
Tell us about yourself?
Hendel is the CEO of H360 Resources Inc. and H360 Villages Inc., which were created and energized by a group of highly-skilled entrepreneurs with extensive international experience and a humanitarian spirit, above all.
Economic development and recovery can only be achieved through the contribution of an international workforce. Hence, the creation of H360 Resources provides a complete range of services, including recruitment, immigration assistance, integration, education, career follow-up, and accommodation.
Hence H360 Villages provides affordable housing for international workers, First Nations, and Canadians who have dropped out of school. The objective of H360 Villages is to provide housing for workers and businesses involved in economic recovery for a maximum stay of two years. To provide integration training for international workers, businesses, and direct neighbours in this environment. Aid with the Recognition of Prior Learning and Competencies (RAC) in vocational training. This process allows for the evaluation and official recognition of competencies acquired through life and work experiences in relation to a program of study. Provide training and career follow-up for talented workers in affordable housing with H360 Villages.
All these things can be achieved through the creation and construction of new affordable housing, consideration of the reuse of existing buildings of various types with adaptation to H360 Villages standards, and design of an ecosystem to help revive the economy in the H360 Villages environment; with the creation of various businesses adapted to the environment.
Previously, Hendel worked for three years as HR Recruitment Director. He also has 24 years of experience in the Tourism Industry, including 19 years as a Resorts General Manager in the four corners of the Globe with a recognized and demonstrated history of success (Financial/People/Clients). He has a strong operations sense, professionally skilled in Catering, Negotiation, Luxury Goods, Food & Beverage, and Leisure Travel. His high emotional intelligence, linked with his passion for others, has led him to be recognized as a key actor in leading changes and a great asset in implementing management culture change.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
In the world of immigration, things evolve and constantly change, and we need to be really agile to ensure that things are moving forward as fast and efficiently as they should. Our immigration department has evolved over the past 18 months, and the learning curve will serve in the near future of H360 Resources Inc.
Our global solution is a complex system in a constantly moving world and reality (pandemic, shortage of affordable homes, to name a few). Therefore, we constantly need to adjust and be as agile as possible in order to be able to make it happen. We need to be careful about managing expectations for both the business owners needing help (yesterday!) and the ‘hopefuls’ hoping to be in Canada working ASAP but waiting for our long immigration process.
What problem does your business solve?
We maximize the social integration and insertion of foreign workers while meeting the need of the Canadian labour market. We are part of the solution for the manpower shortage in Canada, and, most importantly, we are giving opportunities to many people ‘hopeful’ to get a chance at a better future with a better quality of life in our safe and inclusive country while using our international experience to help with integration and inclusion.
What is the inspiration behind your business?
My parents immigrated from Haiti in the late 60s early 70s, and their initiative positively changed the lives of over 300 persons, including mine, over the past four generations of Duplessys.
My business partners and I have witnessed the shortage of manpower firsthand, and we have lived overseas and know really well the motivated candidates – ‘hopefuls’ – that can and want the opportunity to assist our Canadian businesses. We believe we are in a great position to be part of the solution.
What is your magic sauce?
Always put humans first in any context and that is why we decided:
WE ARE BETTING ON INTEGRATION!
H360° Resources Inc. was created to help 12,000 persons find employment in the first five years. The company helps employers find qualified and reliable personnel, train those individuals, and handle the bureaucratic procedures for them.
To help temporary foreign workers (TFW/Hopefuls) integrate more easily, another component of the plan is the creation of H360° villages. This project involves giving a second life to existing buildings and converting them into studios and apartments that will house the foreign workers on arrival (first year and a maximum of two years).
As they settle in these villages, the ‘Hopefuls’ will be immersed in their host country and vice versa; each side will get to know the other, new neighbors learning each country’s culture. Of course, each village will also have all the usual services, such as restaurants, laundromats, convenience stores, and much more.
The importance of these projects cannot be overstated. Canada needs it!
What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?
Our goal over the next five years is to positively impact 12,000 ‘hopefuls’ and 2,000 Canadian companies by matching the needs and opportunities while providing an opportunity for each party to reach their full potential.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
Immigration and our complex and long system to get work visa.
