Victoria, British Columbia – BCI is honoured to be named as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for a third consecutive year. The award recipients from this nationwide competition were announced today in a special feature published in the Globe and Mail and on the Canada’s Top 100 Employers website, together with key reasons for selection.
“This recognition reflects our focus on strengthening our world-class approach to talent,” said Norine Hale, BCI’s executive vice president, human resources.
“But the best evidence that BCI is a great place to work is how we show up for each other, and I’m tremendously proud of the supportive, inclusive culture our people help foster every day.”
With $199.6 billion invested globally on behalf of British Columbia’s public sector, BCI’s active management and ability to generate returns for our clients depends on the specialized skills and expertise of our workforce. Continued recognition as a top employer is a testament to our commitment to delivering a great workplace for our people through holistic programs and benefits.
BCI has continued to expand on our efforts to support employees through the uncertainty and challenges of the pandemic. This included broadening the criteria for our physical activity reimbursement to include at-home fitness equipment, given many of the usual activities under the program were unavailable, and temporary adjustments to vacation carryover limits.
“Many old mindsets have been broken – for example, the way we use technology to create flexibility in our work and improve collaboration,” said Lincoln Webb, executive vice president and global head of infrastructure & renewable resources.
“The pandemic also opened up our thinking about how we can support our people in the future. We’ve improved variable work arrangements, enhancing opportunities for staff to balance work and family.”
Beyond ensuring the availability of existing programs and benefits, BCI also introduced new initiatives focused on supporting health and wellness and professional development in a hybrid environment. Employees now have access to virtual cost-friendly counselling services and an online learning platform providing text and audio summaries of a broad range of books, podcasts, and webinars.
Most importantly, being named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers is a reflection of how BCI’s employees promote a supportive work environment that prioritizes physical, mental, and social well-being.
“Despite working remotely, the staff are bound together more closely since the pandemic. It really strengthened the collective commitment to the firm and each other. And it resulted in one of our best investment years ever.”
Canada’s Top 100 Employers is operated by Mediacorp Canada Inc. – the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals, reaching over 15 million Canadians each year. This is the 22nd anniversary of the award and the third time that BCI has applied.
Applicants are evaluated by the editors using eight criteria and are compared to other organizations in their field to identify those that lead their industries in offering the most forward-thinking programs and exceptional workplace cultures.
