Kelowna Chamber congratulates Okanagan College (OC) in being recognized as one of the province's top employers, as announced today.

For staff at Okanagan College, having a job in a place where there is a strong sense of connection to community, a commitment to ongoing professional development, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students are just some of the reasons they’re proud to be part of OC.

“The community OC has is unreal,” said Douglas Noble, Chair, Motor Vehicle Trades. “We have amazing instructors, amazing students.”

“The existing relationships are also what makes it unique; this is truly a community college,” added Karmen Krahn, Vocational Instructor with the Human Service Work program.

Noble, Krahn and several more OC staff are featured in a new video launched today, as Okanagan College is for the first time recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers (2024).
“Okanagan College is an incredibly special place, where people from diverse backgrounds can come together with the sole purpose of transforming lives of individual students,” said Neil Fassina, OC president. “We’re a values-based organization where people are able to leverage their strengths, and together, we can also transform communities.”

BC’s Top Employers (2024) were revealed earlier this morning in a news release and special magazine co-published by the Vancouver Sun and Mediacorp Canada Inc., organizers of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. The project looks for employers with innovative programs to attract and retain talented employees.
