Being a healthy, top-performing member of the team also means staying fit, getting out of the office and enjoying some of the natural beauty that Vancouver has to offer. Zymeworks’ fitness reimbursement policy allows employees to be reimbursed for a number of different fitness membership costs on an annual basis. Corporate packages negotiated with select providers means that employee’s benefits go the extra mile.
All employees are given the opportunity to refresh themselves mentally and physically with free Shiatsu massage sessions, provided on a monthly basis by professionals from Shiatsu Massage Therapy.
Zymeworks encourages employees to seek out and develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities that will help them grow professionally. Our professional development reimbursement policy allows employees to get reimbursed for up to 100% of the cost of seminars, conferences, and short-term courses.
Every quarter, employees who have gone above and beyond in the pursuit of scientific excellence, the performance of their duties, or the achievement of company goals are recognized for their outstanding efforts. Recognizing and rewarding the contributions of others is at the foundation of our company culture, and underpins our friendly, dynamic, and professional work environment.
We believe that giving back to the community benefits everybody. In addition to our support of local charities, Zymeworks recognizes that employees may have causes or interests to which they donate their time. In recognition of our employees’ commitment to giving back to the community, each calendar year employees can volunteer for five days with local not-for-profit organizations or charities without having to utilize their vacation allotment. Their experiences and contributions are an important part of what makes Vancouver a great place to live, and Zymeworks a great place to work.
