BC Pension Corporation’s response to COVID-19
The health and safety of our employees and members is our number one priority. We continue to closely follow public health guidance and update employees regularly on the decisions we make that impact them.
Work from home
Staff are encouraged to work from home unless it is necessary to be on campus. We moved quickly to enable staff to work from home with all the equipment and furniture they needed.
Covid safety plan
We implemented a Communicable Disease Prevention Plan to ensure all staff are safe and feel comfortable when they are working on campus. Several safely protocols are in place, including mandatory mask wearing when engaging with colleagues indoors, a COVID-19 vaccination policy, limiting capacity in common spaces, clean-in and clean-out protocols, and more.
Resiliency training for leaders
We provided training on leadership resiliency to help our leaders focus on their own health and well-being while taking care of others. This training was catered to addressing issues and providing guidance through the pandemic, and will serve leaders well throughout their career.
Focus on mental health
We ran several COVID pulse check surveys so employees could tell us how they were doing. Insight into their experiences and well-being helped us continue to create a safe, healthy, supportive, and productive workplace. We continue to run pulse checks to help us plan and adjust. We also regularly encourage our employees to access our Employee and Family Assistance program.
