Investing in the right people always pays off, but recruiting talent can be complicated and time-consuming.

PeopleStrong can help you through the entire hiring process. A recruiter saves you time, energy, and money.

Sourcing the right talent can be a daunting task. No matter the industry, it is one of the most challenging functions in a business today. Fortunately, when traditional methods do not bring the expected results, the expertise of external professionals can help. By using an outside source that focuses solely on this function, companies can reduce their overall recruiting costs and time, uncover higher quality talent, and improve diversity in candidate pools.



PeopleStrong is here to guide you through the process of making important hiring choices. We provide flexibility, offering you the exact services you need for any given position.

We specialize in contingency recruitment, where we work with you throughout the entire process, from identifying candidates to hiring them. Through a broad network and advanced recruitment technology, we focus on sourcing both active candidates and those who are not actively looking at job boards but might make a great fit.

Louysa Akerley

PeopleStrong is lead by Louysa Akerley, a bilingual New Brunswicker who has eighteen years of international recruitment experience. Louysa is passionate about her work and relentless when it comes to matching candidates to opportunities. She is motivated to find the right fit for your company and will stop at nothing short of excellence.

Think about how passionate entrepreneurs can be about their business. Louysa Akerley has that same passion for recruiting exceptional talent, tenfold.

“I have known Louysa for several years. I reached out to her in 2019 when our recruitment for a senior development professional didn’t pan out in a first round. Despite not working in the same city where our foundation is located, she quickly demonstrated that she had the necessary tools and understanding to get the job done. Phone calls and emails were a regular occurrence until we found our candidate… in Calgary! She helped alleviate the pressure of recruiting and interviewing so I could focus on increasing our charity’s presence in Central and western New Brunswick. It was a delight to work with her. I will soon need to recruit again for another position. Louysa is on speed dial.”

Gilles Allain , Executive Director | The Chalmers Foundation Inc

“Our experience with People Strong Recruiting was exceptional!  Louysa is a true pro who not only takes the time to thoroughly understand the specifics of the role, its expectations, the required skill sets, experience levels etc., but also takes the time to get to know you, your organization, its directors, the culture, mission and purpose. The process felt like a partnership that allowed Louysa to gain a deep and intimate understanding of both our recruitment needs and our organization culture. As a result, she knew exactly what type of person would fit and be met with the most success and synergy within our team. In short, she found us our person and we are thrilled! I would highly recommend Louysa for all your future recruitment needs!”

Jason Warren, President | BarterPay NB

“I hired Louysa at PeopleStrong because we needed a highly qualified Controller to join our team, and I was told she was the best. This was a critical role for us so finding someone highly qualified and reliable was extremely important. Louysa really took the time to listen and understand our needs and culture. Within a relatively short period of time, she found us our superstar! If you’re looking for an Recruiter who actually cares and is extremely effective in finding talent, I highly recommend reaching out to Louysa.”

Pierre Martell, CEO | MARTELL Custom Homes

Sparta is an even stronger company because of the team players that joined our ranks. Louysa quickly understood our needs and successfully identified highly skilled candidates who truly fit our culture. It’s been a very enjoyable experience dealing with PeopleStrong!

I wanted to share my Wonderful experience with Louysa/PeopleStrong.  I had applied for a position that was posted a little while back, but by the time she received my resume, she had already found a successful candidate. But to my wonderful surprise a few months later, she contacted me in regards to an other opportunity, one that I hadn’t applied for. Although I wasn’t looking in that moment, she took the time to explain the job description to me, the environment and asked me if I would be interested in perhaps meeting with the owner.  I received a bit more information from Louysa and together, we agreed to move forward. She had told me she was confident I would be a perfect fit for this position…and it was! Ok  I am so very happy and could not thank PeopleStrong enough for finding the perfect fit for me.
