Our commitment to employee health is part of the large university goal to create an outstanding work environment as outlined in the UBC Strategic Plan, as well as the UBC Focus on People strategy to develop a sustainable, healthy workplace. Our benefits plans are designed with the continuing health and wellbeing of our staff, faculty and their families in mind.
