BENEFITS | We Invest in Our People
At UFV, we know our faculty, staff and administrators are the key to our success. To assist our employees in continuing to make UFV an outstanding institution, we offer them a full range of benefits and resources. Our employees and their families are protected through comprehensive medical, extended health and dental, and disability plans. A generous vacation allowance encourages a balanced lifestyle, and excellent retirement plans assist in planning for a rewarding life after work.
UFV encourages employees to continue their education and growth though sabbatical and educational leave plans, tuition assistance, and professional development and training funding and leaves. Our computer purchase plan creates an economical alternative for our employees to purchase a new computer or upgrade their existing home system. Our Information and Technology department connects every employee to the full range of network and internet services, both at work and at home, and our library offers on-site and on-line access to research and entertainment resources.
Human Resources sponsors UFV-wide events, such as the Welcome Back Barbeque, the annual recognition dinner, the retirement lunch, and coordinates an extensive program of personal and professional workshops and activities open to all employees. The UFV Employee Fitness Challenge is a high-profile activity to foster a healthy lifestyle and interaction among employees here on campus. Great prizes may be won by completing mileage milestones in the challenge, but this is only the beginning. UFV employee volleyball, golf, and rowing teams, and other group activities encourage UFV employees to get to know one another. Access to the fitness centre and gym, provided through the Employee ID card, offers the opportunity for individual fitness training as well.
