UBC has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People in 2018, the only post-secondary institution to receive this designation. This special designation recognizes the employers that offer the nation’s best workplaces and programs for young people starting their careers.
This is the sixth consecutive year that UBC has received this award. Some of the services that UBC offers to support young employees:
- a Postdoctoral Fellows Office, which acts as a resource centre to help postdocs expand their professional skills; and
- a variety of in-house learning and development programs, including Coaching@UBC, career and personal development workshops, and an academic leadership development program for faculty.
Young employees and employees who are new to the workplace can take part in many UBC programs and initiatives to help welcome them to the community and grow in their careers.
UBC employees can access career navigation services, professional development funding and tuition waivers. As part of the university community, faculty and staff are encouraged to take part in workplace wellbeing initiatives, and access the athletics and recreation facilities at our Vancouver and Okanagan campuses as well as UBC’s many attractions.

UBC has offered staff and faculty entrance and exit surveys for eight years. The feedback gathered from these surveys is important because it provides the University with insights into why faculty and staff join UBC, and why they choose to leave. This information helps support decisions about priorities and initiatives that impact the faculty and staff experience at UBC.
To improve the entrance and exit user experience, we have updated the survey questionnaires and moved the surveys to a secure third-party platform located in Canada.
If you have questions about the surveys, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
