UBC recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers in 2023 

UBC is recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers in 2023. 

This designation recognizes the British Columbian employers that lead as exceptional places to work – and who offer employees the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. 

Three reasons why UBC is one of BC’s Top Employers this year: 

  • UBC organizes an annual Thrive campaign to encourage mental wellbeing through dialogue, awareness, healthy choices, social support and understanding of mental health challenges — and offers generous coverage for mental health practitioners as part of its benefits plan (up to $3,000 annually).
  • UBC supports employees through various stages of life, from maternity leave top-up payments for mothers-to-be and flexible work options to help balance personal and family commitments to phased-in retirement work options for those in the later stages of their career.
  • UBC helps employees plan for the future with retirement planning assistance services and contributions to a defined contribution pension plan. 

UBC offers a variety of opportunities for professional development as well as creating connections with colleagues, such as through the UBC Hot Lunch initiative (monthly lunches with a senior leader who shares their personal and professional experience).
