Workplace Health & Wellbeing at UBCO

The UBC Human Resources Workplace Health & Wellbeing team is actively involved in the creation of a safe community that encourages employee health and wellbeing.
Our commitment to employee health is part of the large university goal to create an outstanding work environment as outlined in the UBC Strategic Plan, as well as the UBC Focus on People strategy to develop a sustainable, healthy workplace. In addition, our work is informed by the Wellbeing Strategic Framework and the Okanagan Charter. Our benefits plans are designed with the continuing health and wellbeing of our staff, faculty and their families in mind. In addition, UBC is proud to offer a wide range of workshops and programs to help keep you working and living well.
