  • Physical workplace
  • Work and social atmosphere
  • Health, financial and family benefits
  • Vacation and time off
  • Employee communications
  • Performance management
  • Training and skills development
  • Community involvement

According to a press release, BC has one of the strongest job markets in the country, with an unemployment rate of 4.4%.

Employers in British Columbia compete on an international stage for the best and brightest talent from around the world.”
