"In PHSA, I am able to make use of my gifts to serve a meaningful purpose; while I can enjoy digging through COVID vaccination data, debugging code, or working through complex technical problems, it is also fulfilling to know that our work, however small, is meaningful work that contributes to the health of our neighbours. Not only that, but it is a joy to work every day with a team of talented and dedicated people, as well as incredibly supportive and caring leaders, who not only support new career growth opportunities, but also make sure that I can honour my well-being and family commitments as well."
– Antony Ho, Senior Business Analyst
"I’ve started my Business Analyst career as a co-op and now have completed 5 years in the PPHIS team at PHSA. I have been entrusted with opportunities and responsibilities early on, helping me accelerate my growth in a supportive and friendly environment. When I faced difficulties and required to seek for help from others, my manager and colleagues were always ready to help with a big smiley face. Despite being fresh, I was given a lot of challenging new opportunities, which helped me not only on growing my technical skills, but also on the soft skills side like public speaking within the team and with the client. I was able to put my point forward, made others understand my thought process, and learned to accept others' points of view and completed a task together as a team. Working in the PPHIS team has been a great experience!"
