Two local employers honoured

Kwantlen Polytechnic University and the Fraser Health Authority have both been recognized as top employers in the province.

The local university and the FHA both made MediaCorp Canada’s annual list of B.C.’s top organizations for leading their industries in attracting and retaining quality employees.

This is the sixth time Kwantlen has earned the distinction while Fraser Health Authority was recognized for the third consecutive year.

“This award is testimony that Kwantlen is a definite leader in offering employees an exceptional place to work,” said John McKendry, the president and vice-chancellor of Kwantlen.

The selection of the top employers is based on performance in several areas, including physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; vacation and time off; employee communications; training and skills development; and health, financial and family benefits.

“This award recognizes Kwantlen’s continued long-term commitment to foster a positive and supportive workplace and learning environment for its faculty and staff,” said Harry Gray, Kwantlen’s associate vice-president of human resources.

“This commitment has helped the university recruit and retain top talent, whose collective efforts effectively support Kwantlen in providing first class post-secondary education in British Columbia.

“We want to thank our faculty and staff for all their efforts in making Kwantlen an exceptional student-focused university.”

“One of our strategic imperatives is to create a great workplace and we are very committed to recruit, recognize and retain our staff,” said Dr. Nigel Murray, the president and CEO for Fraser Health.

“More than any building, technology or program, it’s our people that make Fraser Health distinct.”
