Interior Health has been named one of B.C.’s Top Employers for 2013. This special designation recognizes the B.C. employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

“We are very proud of our people,” says  Interior Health Board Chair Norman Embree. “This is a large organization with more than 18,000 employees, spanning about 215,000 kilometres. The heart of Interior Health is truly our staff and the care they provide each day.”

The BC’s Top Employers annual competition considers a variety of criteria, such as recruitment and retention, as well as 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.

“I am thrilled that Interior Health has been recognized as a Top Employer in B.C.,” says John Johnston, Interior Health vice-president, people and clinical services. “This acknowledgement tells the rest of B.C. and the country what we already know: Interior Health is one of the best places to work in the province. This is also evidence that we’re successfully working towards our goal to build an engaged workforce and a healthy workplace.”
