National recruitment firm launches awards to recognize employers of the future and raise money for Indigenous education
April 16, 2019 – On October 1st, BOWEN Group will celebrate the best workplaces at Canada’s Workforce Choice Awards, an event honouring organizations across every industry who set the new standard for the future of work. For the first time, awards will be chosen by all members of the evolving workforce, from contractors to employees, part-timers to full-timers, interns to seasonal workers, and temps to freelancers.
BOWEN Group recognizes that the nature of work is changing, and the workforce itself is growing more diverse every day. Exceptional organizations are those who focus on today’s pressing issues, such as women’s advancement, Indigenous engagement and future sustainability. No better judges for these characteristics exist than the people working every day across Canada.
To maximize the impact of Canada’s Workforce Choice Awards, BOWEN Group is contributing a dollar for every nomination to Indspire, a national Indigenous-led charity that invests in the education of Indigenous people.
“We hear from First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth every day about the impact that education has on their careers, their families, and their communities,” said Roberta Jamieson, President and CEO of Indspire. “We are thrilled that BOWEN Group understands that impact and has chosen to invest in the futures of Indigenous youth through this campaign.”
Nominate the best workplaces for Canada’s Workforce Choice Award before August 1st, purchase tickets to the awards event on October 1, or become a sponsor at workforcechoiceawards.ca.
