Membership in Labour Market Online is based on the size of the organization rather than the number of people who utilize the website. Therefore, large organizations benefit from encouraging their staff to use the website as much as possible.
Individual memberships are for use by private individuals and are not transferable in any way. Organizations cannot be recognized as 'Individual Members' of Labour Market Online and 'Individual Members' who share their login information with multiple users will loose access to the website and their membership will be cancelled.
Organizations which subscribe to Labour Market Online will receive public recognition as subscribers and all of their staff will have access to the online portal.
In determining organization size, if an organization's primary purpose is 'career development' (for instance a WorkBC contractor with multiple offices but no other function than assisting with career development, all of the staff would be taken into consideration. For large organizations such as a school district or university, where career development is a function associated with one department in that organization, the staff number would reflect the total number of staff in that department.
