Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) has been named one of the best places to work in Canada by both Forbes and Glassdoor. This is the first time VCH has landed on either of these lists.
VCH has been recognized on Forbes' annual list of Canada's Best Employers. VCH is one of only 26 employers in British Columbia and of 26 employers in the health-care industry to make the 2021 list.
The list was determined by Forbes, in partnership with market research company Statista, who independently surveyed 8,000 Canadians working for organizations with at least 500 employees to rate their likelihood to recommend their own and other employers to friends and family.
VCH has also been awarded the Best Places to Work in 2021 in Canada by Glassdoor. VCH is one of four British Columbia-based companies to make the list.
Glassdoor is a website that provides insights about jobs and organizations where employees can share their workplace experiences. The Best Places to Work recognition is entirely based on the reviews that staff voluntarily and anonymously share on Glassdoor. Employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management and work/life balance. The 2021 accolades were based on reviews shared from October 22, 2019 to October 19, 2020.
"It's an honour to be recognized by our own people as one of the best places to work in Canada," says Brett Sparks, Vice President of Employee Engagement. "The pandemic has been tough on health-care workers – it's been tough on everyone – so to receive such positive feedback from our team when they have been faced with extraordinary challenges speaks to the strength of our culture and ability to come together to provide exceptional care, no matter the circumstance."
