Top BC Employer
By dlauenstein on February 20, 2020
UBC is recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers in 2020. This designation recognizes the British Columbian employers 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 (complete with a 25 metre pool, lazy river and hot tub), skating rinks and year-round tennis courts.
- UBC provides its new moms and dads 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.
