THE BEST IN B.C. – PROVIDENCE HEALTH CARE IS A BC TOP EMPLOYER FOR THE 8TH YEAR
For the second consecutive year, and eighth year overall, Providence is proud to be one of BC’s Top Employers. In a year where COVID-19 has taken over our lives both professionally and personally, the 2021 competition highlights winners whose strong and comprehensive pandemic-response led their industry in keeping their employees safe and helping protect the community.
Mediacorp Canada Inc., organizers of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers project that facilitates the regional competition, announced the results on February 16, 2021. Kristina Leung, Senior Editor for the national competition notes: “This year’s winners had a strong baseline of benefits before the pandemic, which made it easier for them to respond when employees’ needs became more pressing and urgent.”
President and CEO Fiona Dalton credits our staff for making Providence an exceptional place to work especially during an extremely difficult year. “To be recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers is a great honour and a credit to everyone who works at Providence. I want to thank our staff, physicians, researchers, volunteers and partners for your ongoing dedication and commitment to providing truly patient centred care, and for fostering a workplace that is supportive and compassionate for your colleagues.”
“COVID-19 reminds us – once again – of who we are as an organization and why we care. People come to Providence for the fit – it’s a sense of calling rather than a job,” says Christopher De Bono, Vice President of Mission, People and Ethics.
Now in its 16th year, BC’s Top Employers is a special designation that recognizes the British Columbia employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. The editors at Canada’s Top 100 Employers used the same criteria as the national competition to evaluate employers throughout British Columbia. During the evaluation process, PHC was compared to other health organizations to determine which top employers had the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
Providence is proud to join three of the province’s six health authorities, Fraser Health, Interior Health and Northern Health in being selected this year.
