Awards dinner to recognize service excellence 

17th annual dinner at Dusty's

The Whistler Chamber of Commerce will be holding its 17th Annual American Express Service Recognition Awards dinner to recognize outstanding individuals and businesses on March 28 th at Dusty’s Bar & Grill.

As in the past, employee recognition will be at the heart of the 2007 awards night with Whistler businesses selecting one or more “Employees of the Year” to receive an award.

The awards night is a way for businesses to recognize and thank employees for their hard work during the winter season. Tickets for the dinner are just $55 per nominee with a reduced rate of $40 for spouses and guests. The Whistler Chamber encourages all its members to nominate one or more employees for an award. Registration forms are available at

This year’s awards will also see the addition of three new categories to include individuals and businesses who have demonstrated high service standards. The categories will include:

The Above & Beyond Award will recognize three top individuals who have gone out of their way to deliver an outstanding guest experience.

The Best in Service Excellence Award will recognize two top businesses who consistently demonstrate an excellent customer service experience. This award will be presented to two different size categories: big (over 50 employees and small (1-49 employees).

Out of the Box Service Award. This business award will be given to the Whistler business that has incorporated innovative ways to create atmosphere, build relationships and encourage repeat visits to Whistler.

The decision to present more service awards is part of the revamped Whistler Spirit Program and resort-wide Service Strategy the Whistler Chamber introduced last fall.

Anybody can nominate a person or business for these special awards. Nominations should include a description or short story of how the guest experience was impacted. The winners will be selected by the Chamber’s Service Committee. To nominate, visit or call Jaime at (604) 932-5922 x 24.
