The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) was recognized on the Forbes list of Canada’s Best Employers 2023 for the second consecutive year. BCIT ranked 37 out of 300 organizations from 25 different industries.
The annual list released by Forbes in partnership with Statistica Inc., identifies best employers based on independent surveys of over 12,000 employees working part-time or full-time for companies employing at least 500 people in Canada. The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees that were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family.
As one of BC’s largest post-secondary institutes with more than 2,600 employees across its five campuses, BCIT is committed to being a people-first organization.
Last year, BCIT launched its inaugural People Vision that describes the Institute’s goals and priorities in respect of its people. The People Vision creates a framework for the Institute’s efforts to support employee development, build an inspiring workplace, and honour employees’ commitment to BCIT.
The BCIT People Vision, along with BCIT Indigenous Vision and Anti-Racism Framework, guide the Institute in fostering a community permeated with equality and inclusivity.
In addition, BCIT aspires to aid in the personal and professional development of its employees, as they in turn, support the Institute. Some of the programs offered by BCIT that celebrate and benefit employee career growth include BCIT Professional Development Day, employee recognition programs, and tuition subsidies.
This recognition attests to the commitment of BCIT faculty and staff in empowering people, shaping BC, and inspiring global progress.
