We are committed to supporting a safe, healthy, and creative work environment for our staff.
We offer development and learning opportunities that enhance our staff members’ knowledge, skills, and abilities with the goal of ensuring all employees reach their full potential. We care about our staff members’ well-being, too. In fact, PCRS was the recipient of the 2016 Surrey Board of Trade’s Surrey Child & Family Friendly Workplace Award. This means we have been recognized for placing high value on work-life balance, laughter and joy in the workplace, exercise and nutrition, and self-care. We also offer an Employee and Family Assistance Program that has a full preventative health program, including nutrition awareness, stress reduction, and tools to assist our staff members with maintaining work-life balance. Moreover, our exemplary compensation package for permanent staff members offers optional leave arrangements, extended health care and dental benefits, short-term disability, Municipal Pension Plan (MPP), and life insurance.
PCRS has been a living wage employer since 2010. As a living wage employer we ensure that our staff are provided with wages that allow them to support themselves and their families. The living wage is calculated based on the wages a two-parent family with two children would need to earn to cover the basic expenses of a family such as food, shelter, clothing, childcare and transportation. Being a living wage employer aligns with our values. For more information see http://www.livingwageforfamilies.ca/
