Focus on People Updates

Thank You for Participating in the Workplace Experiences Survey

The Workplace Experiences Survey is the one opportunity that all faculty and staff have to directly share feedback on their experience of UBC as a workplace. The survey findings are used to better understand faculty and staff experiences, needs, and priorities, and to help shape strategic planning and initiatives at both UBC-wide and at the unit level.

The survey is now closed. If you have a paper survey, please insert your completed survey into the postage-paid envelope included in the survey package and drop it immediately into any Canada Post mailbox to be returned to TalentMap.

UBC named one of BC’s Top Employers in 2017

UBC has been named one of BC’s Top Employers in 2017.

Some of the reasons that UBC was selected as one of BC’s Top Employers this year:

  • UBC encourages employees to continue their own development and education through a variety of in-house training programs, as well as tuition subsidies for university courses.
  • UBC helps its employees prepare for the future with retirement planning assistance, phased-in work options for those nearing retirement, and generous contributions to the pension plan.
  • UBC employees can easily access health and wellbeing lifestyle opportunities, with subsidized memberships to the state-of-the-art onsite fitness facility that includes instructor-led classes, swimming, skating, tennis and even rock climbing.

UBC has over 23,000 faculty, staff and student employees at our campuses in Vancouver and Kelowna, as well as the distributed medical program, hospital, farm, forest and other locations. We are the largest employer of students in the province of British Columbia, with nearly 8,000 student employees working at UBC every year.
