Working With Us
From managing highly complex recruiting projects to developing contractor onboarding and management support, BOWEN’s agility, deep knowledge of the marketplace, understanding of Canadian payroll legislation and sophisticated technology platforms are our key differentiators.
With a 100% payment record and a team of certified payroll professionals, BOWEN has been a go-to provider for many major corporations who don’t want to manage the hassle and significant expense of on and off-boarding project-based talent.
Our online and mobile timesheet system is user friendly and provides for a complete audit and tracking schedule of all payments. Our direct deposit service, contractor help line and our reporting and systems make for a seamless onboarding process, with our customized pay cycles that allow for multiple configurations and cost code management.
Full details are listed in our terms and conditions below. Check with your BOWEN Assignment Manager to confirm if these apply to you, or if your company has a master service agreement or other agreements with BOWEN.
