A toolkit for leveraging Whistler’s employment brand
Recruit like a pro and boost employee engagement! To hire a consultant or take training to access all these insights in one place would cost thousands, but your chamber membership unlocks this very valuable tool. We’ve called this “version 1.0” because this is just the beginning of what will continue to be a living breathing resource that is responsive to the timely needs of our business community.

The Recruitment & Retention Toolkit was requested by our Chamber Members to share HR expertise to help find (and keep) the best team. The project is part of the larger “Recruitment & Retention Strategy” the Chamber has been asked to champion as part of it’s Economic Partnership Initiative (EPI) accountability.

This toolkit shares resources, insights and links on:
• The most essential best practices for recruiting and retaining great team members
• Leveraging elements of Whistler’s unified employment brand in your recruiting
• Creating a culture that truly drives employee engagement


The Whistler Chamber thanks the volunteer members of their “Recruitment and Retention Committee” for their work this valuable resource.
