One of B.C.'s best places to work
In 2021, UBC is once again recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers for our leadership in offering an exceptional place to work with progressive and forward-thinking programs. Among the reasons cited for UBC making the list:
- UBC's commitment to help employees and the campus community explore mental health — through the annual Thrive event, a week-long series of activities and, as part of its health benefits plan, offers a generous mental health practitioner benefit of up to $2,500 annually.
- A Healthy Workplace Initiatives Fund to support employee-led grassroots activities, such as yoga classes and bike-share programs, that promote wellbeing in the workplace.
- Maternity and parental leave top-up payments, plus on-campus daycare centres for faculty, staff and students.
- Beautiful campuses, including access from the Vancouver campus to a hiking trail along the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean, and great views of the distant mountains and the surrounding Salish Sea.
