PHC Named One of BC's Top 55 Employers For the Second Year in a Row
Vancouver, October 23, 2009 — Providence Health Care has once again been selected from hundreds of organizations in the province as one of BC's Top 55 Employers for 2010. PHC was selected on the basis of information contained in this year's application to the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition.
The BC's Top 55 Employers competition acknowledges British Columbia employers that lead their industries in recruitment and retention, offering exceptional places to work. The selection of employers is based on high employment standards and performance in several areas, including: physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
PHC was one of five BC health care organizations, along with Vancouver Coastal Health, Fraser Health Authority, Vancouver Island Health Authority and Provincial Health Services Authority that was recognized as offering employees progressive work policies, opportunities for growth, competitive compensation and excellent benefits.
The health care industry is one of the BC's most exciting and fastest-growing industries. Health care careers are varied, ranging from highly specialized positions to those that involve basic personal care. Through their work, health care professionals can positively impact individuals, their families and whole communities.
“It is truly an honour for Providence Health Care to be chosen two years in a row as a leading employer in this province,” said Dianne Doyle, President and CEO. “This is a testament to our unique culture here at PHC, and because of that we have been able to attract and retain some of the best health care professionals from BC., Canada and around the world.”
The sixth annual BC's Top 55 Employers competition is organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc (the organizers of the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition). The winners of the 2010 BC's Top 55 Employers competition were profiled in special editorial features in The Province, The Vancouver Sun and the Times Colonist this past weekend and at www.canadastop100.com.
