Hybrid work at UBC

At the centre of the hybrid work program is the need to preserve the student experience, advance the academic mission, support research excellence and impact, and maintain the high quality of our programs. Creating a flexible workplace environment will support a range of UBC’s institutional goals, including the attraction and retention of faculty and staff, as well as our commitments to inclusion, wellbeing, and climate action.

The hybrid work program is available for staff. Staff and leaders need to understand the program objectives and principles. Mental health support and learning resources are also available. All staff who participate in the program need to have a hybrid work agreement in place in Workday. 

Review the June 28, 2022 UBC Bulletin, "UBC to formally adopt hybrid work".
