UBC is recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers in 2021. 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 UBC is selected as one of BC’s Top Employers this year:
- UBC organizes an annual Thrive event, a week-long series of activities to help employees and the campus community explore mental health — and, as part of its health benefits plan, offers a generous mental health practitioner benefit of up to $2,500 annually.
- UBC encourages physical activity through the “Move U Crew“, a group of specialists with experience in fitness, dance, stretching and other recreational activities who provide guided movement breaks in classes, conferences, and meetings, and hosting guided walks. (Learn more about Move UBC and events taking place this month!)
- UBC offers a family-friendly work environment with maternity and parental leave top-up payments for new parents (varying by position), options to phase-in return to work, onsite child care, and a variety of flexible working arrangements.
