Surrey Schools among BC’s Top Employers for 2020

BC Top Employer - 2020 -SurreySchools.jpgSurrey Schools has once again been selected among B.C.'s Top Employers.

This is the fourth time the school district has been recognized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. (organizers of the annual Canada's Top 100 Employers competition).

"Our board is particularly proud of this special recognition," said Surrey Board of Education chairperson Laurie Larsen. "Trustees believe strongly that our workplaces need to be supportive, welcoming, community-minded and rewarding. Employees who feel valued are, in turn, more fulfilled and inspired as they work toward our common goal of supporting and nurturing students."

Surrey School District is Surrey's largest employer with more than 11,700 employees, including over 6,200 teachers.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the BC's Top Employers competition, a special designation that recognizes employers in the province that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs, using the following criteria:

  • Physical workplace;

  • Work atmosphere & social;

  • Health, financial and family benefits;

  • Vacation and time off;

  • Employee communications;

  • Performance management;

  • Training and skills development, and;

  • Community involvement.

The full list of BC's Top Employers for 2020 was announced Feb. 19 in a special magazine published in the Vancouver Sun. Detailed reasons for selection for each of the winners, with hundreds of stories and photos, were released by the editors today and are accessible via the competition homepage.
