Why work at WCB?

We fit your values

Service, care, excellence, trust and fairness. These are our core values. These values are fundamental to who we are, the service we provide to our clients and how we work together. If this sounds like you, you could be a great fit as a member of our team. Here's what this means to us every day.

  • Service: We contribute to each other’s well-being and provide the support people need, when they need it.
  • Care: We are eager to help others. Our clients and staff are people with families, hopes, dreams and dignity. We all have unique needs worthy of empathy and understanding.
  • Excellence: We strive to excel in every aspect of our business, but excellence doesn’t mean we’re perfect. We’re constantly learning, growing and improving.
  • Trust: We are consistent, fair and reliable. We deliver on our commitments and own our mistakes so we can build trust in our system – one interaction at a time. We extend trust to our clients and to each other.
  • Fairness: We’re guided by balance and impartiality. We achieve this through open and honest communication, listening to our clients (and each other) and treating each other with dignity and respect.

"My father was killed in an industrial accident when I was a baby, so I knew about WCB from a young age. I didn't know I would work here when I grew up, of course, but my personal story helped me to relate to injured workers and their families. I know that each claim tells a different story."
