Panorama Grooming Policy

Purpose - Personal Appearance Mission Statement:

Panorama Mountain Resort is a resort that entertains all types of clientele including families.  It is a place where our employees can relate to children and parents in a confident, knowledgeable manner. It is a place where our guests recognize and value the presentation of our employees and the pride it instills throughout the resort. We know that a person’s outward appearance is not an indication of their worth or attitude, but it is the first impression a guest has; therefore we must maintain a NEAT, CLEAN and PROFESSIONAL appearance. We aspire to a high standard of presentation.

Scope:

This policy applies to all employees while at work.  No exceptions.

Policy:

This policy is intended to define the boundary for an individual employee’s appearance.  All standards are gender neutral.  Management may choose to more strictly enforce components of this policy but they cannot allow a relaxation of this policy.   

We rely on your good judgment and commitment to maintain a professional, well-groomed appearance while at work. Each Employee is expected to practice good habits of grooming and personal hygiene

Our top 5 overall priorities of focus in relation to our personal appearance standards are:

  1. Uniform
  2. Name Tag
  3. Hair
  4. Facial Hair
  5. Jewellery

Uniform

  • Employees may wear their uniforms to and from work, but may not be worn during non-working hours (free skiing, days off)
  • When personal clothing is allowed to be worn in conjunction with the company uniform, it must be neat and clean. It cannot not be torn, faded or patched.

Name Tags

  • Nametags are part of your uniform and must be worn at all times while on duty. They identify us to our guests and other employees and they play a vital role in making them feel comfortable. Your supervisor or manager will provide you with a nametag with your first name and place of origin. 
  • Employees in supervisory/management positions may request to have their title on their nametag. These need to be approved by the direct manager or Employee Experience.
  • Your perception of a fun name may not be the same for our guests, which is why fake hometowns are not allowed, abbreviated names or nick-names that are derived from given or surnames that are more commonly used are acceptable as per Employee Experience & Management. e.g.:
    • Johnathan/Johno
    • Jean Claude/JC
    • Sarah/Sez
    • Julianne/Jules
    • Anthony Jackson/Jacko
  • Nametags may not be worn in licensed establishments when off duty.
