Capilano University is pleased to announce it is named as one of BC's Top Employers for a second year. The University is extremely honoured to be recognized as one of the best workplaces in British Columbia.

The BC's Top Employers annual competition is organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes employers with the most forward-thinking human resources practices and progressive workplace policies.

“This is an achievement we are very proud of,” says Capilano University President Paul Dangerfield. “We aim to be a leader in developing healthy campuses. Providing an exceptional workplace is key to cultivating a strong sense of community, health and well-being for our employees.”

Now in its 15th year, the competition recognizes employers in British Columbia that are leaders in offering exceptional places to work. Employers are evaluated using the same eight criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere and Social; (3) Health, Financial and Family Benefits; (4) Vacation and Time Off; (5) Employee Communication; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training and Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine leaders.

“This award is a tribute to all of CapU's faculty, staff and employees who contribute to making CapU a great place to work. Our University continuously strives to build capacity to support our employees,” says Dangerfield.
