“Our employees are foundational to the culture at CapU,” said Capilano University’s vice president People, Culture & Diversity, Kartik Bharadwa. “This honour reflects how our focus on health and well-being as a cornerstone of our culture, our commitment to diversity and belonging, and an environment of learning and personal development help create a dynamic and supportive workplace.”

The BC's Top Employers competition recognizes employers in British Columbia who are leaders in offering exceptional places to work. Employers are evaluated using the same eight criteria as the Canada's Top 100 Employers 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. 

Organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers, the BC's Top Employers annual competition recognizes employers with the most forward-thinking human resources practices and progressive workplace policies. 

“To be recognized as a top employer when many employees work in a hybrid model, this is a testament to the collective dedication of our employees to create and foster a distinct university experience that delivers imaginative, life-enhancing learning experiences for students,” says Bharadwa. “Together, we’re supporting an experience where a healthier and happier campus community can grow.
