February 18, 2022

Victoria, British Columbia – BCI is proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top Family-Friendly Employers and one of British Columbia’s Top Employers for the third consecutive year. The awards are part of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project produced by Mediacorp Canada Inc., which also named BCI one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers in November.

The recipients of the competition for Canada’s Top Family-Friendly Employers were released today. The editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers evaluate employers on how they help their employees balance work and family life. Being named to this list year-after-year reflects BCI’s continued commitment to creating a supportive and inclusive work environment.

As we enter the third year of the pandemic, understanding the needs of our employees so they can be successful both at work and at home has been critical,” says Norine Hale, executive vice president, human resources. “This includes providing flexibility and support through a variety of benefits focused on their physical and mental wellness.

During the course of the pandemic, BCI supported employees and their families through a comprehensive benefits plan, health practitioner supports, parental leave top ups, and flexible work options. In 2021, employees were also encouraged to maintain their physical fitness through enhancements to BCI’s Physical Activity Reimbursement Program.

Last week, BCI was also recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers. With over 600 employees who live and work in British Columbia, we’re proud that the work we do help our clients build a financially secure future. This includes 12 public sector pension funds, helping secure the pensions and post-retirement group benefits of more than 690,000 plan members. We also work to support the investment objectives of our insurance fund clients — one of which provides coverage for more than 2.5 million workers and 249,000 registered employers, while another provides over three million customers in British Columbia with vehicle insurance. The remainder of our clients include public trusts, endowments, and government bodies who have funds and investments requiring professional management.

Being recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers reflects our focus on strengthening our world-class approach to talent. Our employees are BCI’s greatest strength, and they continue to cultivate a collaborative and inclusive culture which brings out the best in everyone. All for the benefit of our clients – British Columbians,” Hale added.

Mediacorp Canada Inc. is the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals, reaching over 15 million Canadians each year. This is the third time that BCI has applied.

Applicants for Canada’s Top 100 Employers project are evaluated using eight criteria[1] and are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking human resources programs and initiatives.
