UBC recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers in 2024

UBC is recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers in 2024. 

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: 

  • Along with working at one of Canada’s most beautiful campuses, UBC employees can take advantage of the shoreline hiking trail with great views of the mountains and the surrounding Salish Sea — employees are also encouraged to keep fit with subsidized memberships to extensive onsite fitness facilities.
  • UBC supports employees through various stages of life, including top-up payments for adoptive parents and mothers-to-be, flexible work options to help employees balance personal and family commitments, and 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 unique “Target Benefit Pension Plan” that features elements of both a defined benefit and 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).
