The You’re Welcome Edmonton Program involves a four step qualifying process that narrows down our nominees to 17 award winners. The qualifying process is necessary because Edmonton Tourism collects well over a thousand nominations each year.
Nomination- the first step in the qualifying process. Nominations are collected from Jan through to Dec of the calendar year.
Human Resources Evaluation Form- organizations will provide the program their feedback on each of their nominees. This step is important because it provides organizations the opportunity to influence the selection process.
Online Evaluation- nominees will provide their thoughts on why they love their job, and why it is important they do it well. Don’t worry, it’s only seven quick questions.
You’re Welcome Edmonton Interview Week - the last step in the selection process involves the top 20% of each award category meeting our industry volunteers. They will discuss what they are passionate about, their roles within their organization, and what outstanding customer service means to them.
To help nominees become comfortable with the interview process, we will provide you with the interview week questions for each award category. Click here!
