Today, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) was named one of BC’s Top Employers for the eleventh consecutive year. The annual competition organized by Canada’s Top 100 Employers recognizes the British Columbia employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. The recognition celebrates YVR’s vibrant and diverse workforce and ongoing commitment to its employees.
“This is a huge honour for YVR and a big source of pride for us all,” said YVR’s President & CEO Craig Richmond. “Being recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers is a tribute to the outstanding team here at YVR and our commitment to investing in our employees through initiatives like our heath, wellness and development programs, and creating a corporate culture that fosters creativity and innovation.”
With a focus on safety, teamwork and innovation, YVR engages employees through various programs and initiatives designed to support personal and professional growth. YVR offers safety and wellness programs that include weekly yoga and seasonal boot camp classes and various learning and development programs that provide both internal and external training at all employee levels. As an active member in the community, YVR also provides volunteer opportunities throughout the year through its community investment program.
Employers included in BC’s Top Employer are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers, based on eight criteria: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere & Social; Health, Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation & Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training & Skills Development; and Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
