We must hold ourselves accountable to uphold these values individually and as a team. These values guide how we will get there, one experience and interaction at a time.

Our mission in Employee Experience is to drive employee engagement at Whistler Blackcomb. One of the ways we do that is by providing employees with the tools they need to be effective leaders. The learning Curve (TLC) is Whistler Blackcomb's in-house training and development program. It is developed and facilitated by EE officers. The TLC has been developed to focus on managing people in today's climate rather than taking a more traditional approach.
