Surrey Schools makes BC's Top Employers list for 2021


For the fifth time, Surrey Schools has been named one of B.C.'s Top Employers.

The district was selected by Mediacorp Canada Inc., organizers of the 16th-annual Canada's Top 100 Employers Competition, for its ongoing support of employee development through various initiatives, such as online and in-house training, subsidies for professional accreditation and tuition subsidies for courses at external institutions.

"Our board is honoured that Surrey Schools has once again been recognized as a leading employer in the province," said Laurie Larsen, Chair of the Surrey Board of Education. "We are proud to support our staff by fostering welcoming, encouraging and rewarding work environments so that they may continue to create inspiring, supportive learning environments for our students."

Surrey Schools is the largest school district in B.C. and the largest employer in Surrey, with more than 11,700 employees, including more than 6,300 teachers.

The BC's Top Employers competition recognizes employers in the province that led 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 2021 was announced Feb. 16 in a special magazine published in the Vancouver Sun. Detailed reasons for selection for each of the winners, with hundreds of stories and photos, are accessible via the competition homepage.
