Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company with approximately 9,100 hotels in over 95 countries, today announced two new honors from Forbes and Newsweek, both of which recently recognized the Company as a top place to work.
For the second consecutive year, Forbes ranked Wyndham as one of America’s Best Large Employers, highlighting team members’ willingness to recommend the Company to both family and friends.
Workplace for diversity
Newsweek named Wyndham to its list of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity, showcasing Wyndham’s continued commitment to supporting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), career development, corporate culture and more. Both accolades build on the Company’s growing resume of workplace awards.
“Our Count on Me service culture inspires the great experiences we create for team members and the people we serve,” said Monica Melancon, chief human resource officer, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.
“Respecting our differences and giving our team members opportunities to succeed beyond their day-to-day roles and responsibilities reflect our core values of integrity, accountability, inclusivity, caring and fun, and fosters a workplace where people are able to reach their full potential.”
Wyndham’s commitment to its people, including their development and growth is significant. The Company provides educational programs, volunteer initiatives and a range of affinity business groups to foster an inclusive workplace.
Wyndham also provides comprehensive benefits supporting team members’ health, career, lifestyle and financial wellness, alongside exclusive travel perks and a fulfilling work-life balance.
DEI training for staff
Wyndham prioritizes DEI training for all team members with a broad range of topics including antiracism and allyship, and recently became the first hospitality organization to partner with the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) to provide networking opportunities and resources to support potential candidates across nearly 40 HBCUs.
In addition to the resources provided to team members, the Company sponsors several initiatives to promote inclusivity and representation across its partners, franchisees and owners.
Wyndham’s supplier diversity program engages suppliers owned by traditionally underrepresented groups to integrate them as partners within everyday business, and Wyndham’s first-of-its-kind Women Own the Room program and BOLD by Wyndham advance and empower women and Black entrepreneurs, developers and owners on their path to hotel ownership.
From team members, franchisees, partners, suppliers, and guests – Wyndham believes that a diversity of backgrounds, cultures and experiences helps drive the success of not only the Company, but the hospitality industry.
