Staff Recognition

Through the Staff Excellence Award (SEA) Program, UBC Facilities provides recognition and rewards our staff who have consistently demonstrated excellence in the performance of their work and service to the university. All UBC students, faculty, and staff are invited to nominate one (or more!) of their clients or colleagues who, in their view, have achieved excellence in one of the Award categories inspired by our VPFO Strategic Plan.

Workplace Experiences

Every three years, the university surveys staff and faculty about their workplace experience. Find out more about our efforts to increase staff engagement in the workplace.
