Chicago — Dec. 12
Hyatt Hotels Corp. plans to celebrate Human Rights Day by highlighting its commitment to respecting fundamental human rights, as embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
To mark Human Rights Day, Hyatt is advancing its campaign against human trafficking by launching a global training program for company associates developed in conjunction with the Polaris Project, an organization dedicated to combating human trafficking.
The program is designed to provide managers and line staff at Hyatt hotels around the world with an understanding of human trafficking, its intersection with the hotel industry and the tools to recognize and report potential situations or victims.
This commitment to human rights is aligned with Hyatt’s core values and is supported by its publicly available human rights statement, code of business conduct and ethics, supplier code of conduct and its diversity and inclusion strategy.
Hyatt established diversity and inclusion as a core tenet of its U.S. operations more than 20 years ago. Since then, a growing number of programs strive to foster similar ideals and challenge associates to lead by example by embracing diversity and inclusion through associate training, recruiting and retention, as well as bringing our suppliers and developers into the fold.
Additionally, Hyatt’s employee network groups promote basic business networking of Hyatt colleagues who share a common cultural heritage, race, gender, age or interest. These groups and other initiatives have resulted in countless awards and accolades in recognition of Hyatt’s commitment to a diverse workplace.
