U Count at UBC – Employment Equity census

UBC is conducting a census of faculty and staff over the next two weeks. All employees should receive an email from their Dean or senior administrator with instructions on how to complete the online Equity Employment Survey.

The confidential survey takes only a few minutes to complete – so please count yourself in by May 27! Complete the survey online at www.msp.ubc.ca .

In order to comply with the Federal Contractors Program UBC requires a periodic census of all of its employees. The last census took place in 2008, and its important UBC conducts a census now for two main reasons – to maintain government compliance and to support the university in setting employment equity goals which can improve its hiring, promotion and retention practices.

Completing the survey is mandatory, although answering all the questions is not. Employees can answer as many questions as appropriate.
