Deloitte Names BOWEN Group One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies


Calgary, Alberta (March 7, 2019) – BOWEN Group, the leading Canadian recruiting and contractor workforce management firm, is named among Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2019.

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the nation’s leading business awards program, which recognizes excellence in business performance and sustained growth in Canadian owned and managed companies.

“This year’s Best Managed winners know what it takes to succeed in the future,” says Lorrie King, National Co-Leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and Partner, Deloitte Private. “By investing in innovation and embracing a people-centric approach, these companies are outpacing their competition. In thinking long term, these companies are already ahead of the curve and are set to be better prepared and successful in the years to come.”

“Having just navigated some of the toughest years in our corporate history, I couldn’t be more proud of this award,” says Shannon Bowen-Smed, President & CEO, BOWEN Group. “It is an important reminder that the bottom line is only one measure of success and that in the toughest of times, we can become the greatest of things. A huge thank you to our team for their belief in what is possible and their will to continually drive us to always being our best.”

Every year, hundreds of companies compete for this coveted award and are selected through a rigorous judging process. Rather than just financial performance, the judging panel evaluates how organizations align their people, processes, and outcomes with their corporate strategy.
