Ian Martin, Ian Martin Workforce Rebrand to Raise

Ian Martin and Ian Martin Workforce, two of North America’s largest, purpose-driven staffing companies, announced they are rebranding as Raise.

The companies are adopting the name “Raise” across all business lines because Raise speaks to the company’s mission of connecting people in meaningful work. Raise currently has 20 offices globally, mainly across Canada and the United States, and is used by thousands of small- to medium-sized companies. 

Raise now offers a full complement of services, including:

  • Payroll, employer of record (EOR), and compliance management
  • Managed direct sourcing
  • Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO)/volume hiring


“While the name Ian Martin is rich in history, people are looking for innovation and a positive vision for the future,” said Tim Masson, Chief Steward and CEO at Ian Martin. “Our company has evolved. The name Raise reflects the expanded contributions we want to make in the world going forward.”
