Woodbine Entertainment has afforded Tania amazing opportunities to grow her career. Beginning as a Compensation & Benefits Specialist in 2001, she rose through various positions before landing in her current role as the SVP People Experience. As a member of the executive management team, she contributes to the development, review and attainment of the organization’s vision, values and strategic goals and the building of a cohesive leadership team. She is primarily focused on People, and making their experience at work AWESOME! The People Experience team are enablers of a positive culture shift and doing all that they can do to build relationships, cultivate trust and unlock the potential of their people through an authentic and empowering work experience. Among doing all things HR in some capacity or another over her career, Tania is currently on a quest along with the other leaders to shift the culture at WEG to one that engages employees to be happy at work; when employees are feeling great about their workplace, they will provide an amazing experience for their guests.
Tania’s Science degree from the University of Waterloo has enabled her to be a more left-brained HR professional over the years, but her right-brain has certainly emerged, getting her heart into the game. She believes in creating collaborative relationships with all stakeholders and having coaching conversations is at the heart of these relationships. This coaching support is critical to this culture shift.
