Health & Wellbeing

Your mind and body, your skills and your experiences all work together to create your identity, and that’s the person UBC wants: we hire humans, not resources.

You’ll discover programs designed to support mental thriving, to encourage fitness and health, and to even help you look after your financial wellbeing. We support people to be their best in all aspects of life, including their work.

Health, Benefits & Wellbeing

Health is supported by an active, lifelong process of making positive choices and decisions that lead to a balanced and fulfilling life.

Creating and sustaining this type of environment involves building awareness, encouraging healthy behaviours and engagement in positive social communities to support overall health.
