UBC is one of BC’s Top Employers in 2020. This designation recognizes the employers in British Columbia that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work and the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
Some of the reasons that UBC was selected as one of BC’s Top Employers this year:
- Encouraging employees to get involved in the wider community through the Community Leadership Program, an innovative six-month leadership development program that allows employees to lead and implement a community service learning project within their community.
- UBC employees work in one of Canada’s most beautiful workplaces, featuring a shoreline hiking trail and great views of the distant mountains and the surrounding Salish Sea. Employees are also encouraged to keep fit with subsidized membership to the state-of-the-art onsite fitness facility as well as an aquatic centre, skating rinks and year-round tennis courts.
- UBC provides new parents with maternity leave and parental leave top-up payments (varying by position), and employees can take advantage of on-campus daycare centres with over 600 spaces for children.
This award highlights some of the outstanding work being done at UBC in support of the Strategic Plan and Strategy 1: Great People.
