Deer Valley Resort – A Mini United Nations.

The Power of Diversity – a study in Deer Valley’s Mini UN…

I just wrapped up a multi-day “Park City Visioning” session at Deer Valley Resort and was blown away with the global diversity represented at one ski resort (the #1 rated ski resort in North America.)

The Known… Deer Valley has always been known as a great place to work. It is a unique place that feels more like a big family than an employer. Deer Valley’s success, validated year-after-year by Ski Magazine resort rankings speaks for itself. People come from all over the world to work and play at Deer Valley.

The Unknown… While I knew people came from all over the world to work at Deer Valley, I had no idea the number of countries represented by the resort’s workforce. The resort employs cool people from 37 countries around our planet. The resort is literally a highly functioning, mini United Nations.

The Deer Valley family is treasure of different nationalities, cultures, religions, languages, values, and belief systems. All those differences, yet one tight family.

I suspect Deer Valley’s strength of diversity is a key component of it’s continued success. Kind of makes you say hmm…. Can we bottle that tolerance and respect for diversity and spread it around our planet?

Deer Valley’s success is an amazing testament to what can happen when you harness the strength and power of diversity and align it around a common vision.

Peace out and happy weekend – Martin Fox with the Center for Global Leadership.
