Welcome to what we know will be an exciting career at the Brant Community Healthcare System! Working here is not like working at any other healthcare organization. Our commitment to the needs of our patients, families, and our employees has been recognized by Accreditation Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. We have been recognized as a Hamilton-Niagara top employer for 2017.
Our hospitals are a 100% smoke-free environment. Smoking is prohibited on all hospital property including the parking lots.
In response to the rise in scent allergies among the patient and employee population, BCHS has implemented a scent-free policy, which requires staff, physicians, students and volunteers to refrain from using scented products before or during shifts.
The Brant Community Healthcare System strives to be an organization where employees enjoy their work environment while creating extraordinary results. We also want it to be a place where open communication comfortably across all levels.
To help meet these goals, BCHS has a dress code policy in place. Here are highlights; the full policy is available on the BCHS Intranet, known as VSNet.
At BCHS, we recognize that our employees will be using technology to stay connected with their friends, family, and in some cases, co-workers. At the same time, we cannot allow the use of personal electronic devices to adversely affect patient care or workplace efficiency.
We have developed a policy around employee use of personal electronic devices such as cell phones and other social media devices, which can be found our internal staff intranet site. This policy limits the use of such devices to personal break time and, where necessary, work-related communication during active duty.
The Brant Community Healthcare System recognizes the importance of appreciating commitment and acknowledging outstanding contributions to the hospital’s mission of improving the health of all of our patients. Human Resources provides an array of activities on behalf of the organization to meet these objectives.
We recognize our employees for their loyalty through our Employee Service Awards. Recognition is given at 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, 25 and beyond.
The organization offers a number of special programs and services to help you balance the demands of work and home life. These are just a few; for more information after you start work watch employee publications and VSnet.
