Results from our annual Employee Engagement Survey indicate that JIBC is a Great Place to Work.
More than 85% of respondents to the survey told us they would recommend JIBC to others as a Great Place to Work.
Personal Professional Development
JIBC not only provides a superior learning environment for its students, it also supports the development of its people.
As an educational institution, JIBC is committed to the concept of ongoing professional development for our employees. We encourage each of our employees to seek out educational opportunities and to take responsibility for their personal and professional development
As part of JIBC's support for staff development, funding is allocated for professional development for all staff. Accessing these development funds is one way that JIBC staff maintains or grows knowledge and expertise in their chosen careers.
Health & Wellness
JIBC recognizes the importance of employee wellness at all levels – physical, spiritual and mental. Employees are encouraged to participate in organized physical activities such as onsite basketball, aerobics, yoga and Pilates at the New Westminster campus.
Many employees take the opportunity to walk or run at lunchtime or after work, or use the onsite exercise facility. The Canada Games Pool facility is also located adjacent to the main New Westminster campus.
A quiet room is provided at the New Westminster campus for those who wish to spend time in prayer or meditation during their working day. The challenge of work/life balance is met by providing generous time off benefits as well as flexible work options.
Flexible Work Arrangements
Flexible work hours and schedules, part-time and job share opportunities, provide many ways for employees to balance the operational needs of their role and their personal lives. For those wishing to plan a significant break from work, JIBC offers its employees a deferred salary leave plan.
Support for the Community
Not only has tangible employee support resulted in the JIBC being recognized six times at the United Way's gold level, the JIBC also sponsors a loaned representative to the annual United Way campaign. Employees compete for this opportunity and privilege to give back to their communities while gaining increased confidence and skills working in a very public and different role. Other employees give of their time by volunteering to be a part of JIBC's United Way Committee and participating in the United Way's Day of Caring.
