Victoria, British Columbia – BCI is proud to be named as one of Canada’s Top Family-Friendly Employers for the fourth consecutive year, offering employee programs with robust benefits and flexibility, including for working parents.
“I’m incredibly proud BCI has once again be recognized as one of Canada’s Top Family-Friendly Employers,” said Norine Hale, BCI’s executive vice president, human resources, “At BCI we have tried to develop and evolve programs that are able to meet the needs of our employees. We recognize flexibility is key to enabling our employees to meet both their professional and personal requirements.”
Employee wellness at BCI is a priority, and we are proud to support parents with a comprehensive leave program including, pre-leave meetings to discuss leave options, financial considerations, government and BCI benefits, planning for pension purchase options, and leave entitlement calculations for before and after the parental leave. Meetings help ensure parents can make a well-informed decision on how to best plan the leave for themselves and their family. As the return-to-work date approaches, early communication and planning with employees on parental leave is key to ensure the returning parent has a smooth transition back to the office, including the potential for a phased return to work plan.
Parents receive generous leave top-up payments, 85 per cent of salary for up to 52 weeks for maternity and parental leaves, and 85 per cent of salary for up to 36 weeks for fathers and adoptive parents.
“Employees are instrumental to the success of BCI and our clients. When you support their work/life balance with flexible options that empower each parent to make choices that best suit their needs, and that of their family, everyone benefits,” said Hale.
