One of the things that we value most at BOWEN is giving back to our community. It’s part of our culture and a priority for our Executive and employees.
With the tightening job market, organizations are requiring new or different outsourced HR services. The war on talent is definitely heating up and internal HR teams are challenged with shifting priorities and strategic workforce planning issues.
Over 150,000 Canadians were employed through temporary services in 2010 (Stats Canada). That’s an incredible number!
Temporary work is a great fit for individuals who want – or need – flexible work hours, while still earning a competitive wage.
After a brief hiatus, I am pleased to be blogging again!
There are times when the stars seem to align and the perfect opportunity comes along at just the right time. Such is the case with BOWEN’s sponsorship of Calgary’s Twestival on March 24, 2011.
With our frigid weather, it may be difficult to imagine that spring – and even summer – are not that far off. For post-secondary students, this means that it’s not too early to start you summer job search. Thankfully, the job market is stronger than the previous two years, and trends indicate more opportunities will be available.
After countless months of hard work, the BOWEN team has moved into our new space. As I look around our new office environment and talk with employees, it is easy to see that change is a good thing.
I am excited to share with you that BOWEN is on the move. After operating in Calgary’s downtown core for 37 years, we are moving to the Beltline area (Suite 700, 602 – 12 AVE SW), which will be our new home effective February 28, 2011.
It may not be a topic that gets a lot of attention, but it should. Talented terrors are a workplace reality. Their skills and abilities make them superstars, but their attitudes leave a lot to be desired. Talented Terrors can deliver excellent results but their attitudes damage morale and destroy teams. They actually believe you can’t manage without their brilliance.
