Design Group Staffing Inc., an Edmonton-based staffing firm, has swallowed up The People Bank.

Mike Duff, president and CEO of Design Group, said the acquisition — effective Aug. 30 — is part of the company’s strategy to build staffing services through strategic acquisitions.

“Many of People Bank’s services are compatible with those provided by (Design Group). They bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the areas of office administration, information technology, financial services and medical recruiting,” said Duff.
