Take advantage of our comprehensive, customizable programs.
flexible benefits program
BDC provides you with an annual amount to help you stay fit and to support your well-being.
You, your spouse and your dependents may continue to receive some benefits, including insurance and health care plans, after you retire from BDC.
Employee assistance program (EAP)
You will have access to a confidential service that offers professional counselling to help you address personal challenges, such as family concerns, bereavement, addiction and career issues.
Time off with pay
Your paid vacation is based on your position and length of service. You can also buy additional vacation days under the flexible benefits program.
We also provide up to five personal days per year to help you fulfill your personal responsibilities, such as those related to family illness, religious holidays, community/volunteer work, and studying for or writing an exam when taking professional development courses.
Leaves of absence and other support
If you are unable to work for health reasons, we have disability programs that can cover an extended period of absence. We also offer a child-care top-up program that supplements normal employment insurance benefits provided to biological mothers employed by BDC. And our taking care program can help you find information on available professional services, such as home care for a parent or child care.
Scholarships for employees’ children
We provide several scholarships that help the children of BDC employees to pursue higher education.
Flexibility at work
Depending on your role, flexible work arrangements may be possible to help you balance work and personal responsibilities, and optimize your productivity in the workplace (e.g., a flexible schedule, part-time hours or summer hours).
Flexibility takes different forms. Our employees can wear jeans on Fridays and, when appropriate, business casual attire in the office during the rest of the week.
While all of these are designed to foster a more collegial and flexible work environment, remaining client-focused and business-driven are the key principles underpinning BDC’s flexibility at work.
