Providing HR Support & Advice to the UBC Community
Human Resources provides support and advice to UBC departments and a range of services for faculty and staff, including recruitment and employment, training and development for faculty and staff, labour relations, benefits administration, and the development of human resource policies. The HR team includes over 80 staff on UBC’s Vancouver and Okanagan campuses who work closely with the many human resources professionals and administrators located throughout the university.
Key Service Units & Responsibilities
Advisory Services staff can support you with expertise in staff HR issues, such as interpreting the collective agreements and handbooks, day-to-day staff management concerns, and employee relations. We also provide temporary employment opportunities through our Staff Finders unit.
Specializing in faculty issues, Faculty Relations can guide you in faculty appointments, compensation, recruiting and immigration.
Faculty Staff Housing & Relocation Services
The Faculty Staff Housing & Relocation Services team provides one-stop information for faculty and staff housing programs and options for the Vancouver campus, and Work-Life Relocation support and information on childcare, healthcare benefits, relocation of goods, and immigration in order to help smooth the transition of new faculty, postdoctoral fellows, staff, and families, who are relocating to UBC.
HR Information Systems
Our HRIS team is responsible for the maintenance, training, and administration of the Human Resources Management System (HRMS) as well as the web development of the HR website and providing network administration for the department.
Human Resources at the Okanagan Campus
Our Okanagan team provides human resources support through recruitment services, training and professional development, new employee orientation, and labour relations for both faculty and staff.
Coordinating all of the HR units to lead a wide range of human resource strategies and initiatives, Integrated Strategies ensures that human resource communications are provided to the university community in a timely and meaningful way.
Organizational Development & Learning
Every moment is a learning opportunity, and ODL offers a wide range of development and learning solutions for the individual, the team or the organization as a whole.
Through its two pension plans – the Faculty Pension Plan (FPP) and the Staff Pension Plan (SPP) – UBC is committed to helping faculty and staff create financial security in retirement.
Total Compensation is more than just salaries. UBC staff members have access to a wide variety of compensation, benefits, programs, and opportunities that contribute to overall health, development, and well-being.
