The hotel company has earmarked several volunteer initiatives worldwide, as well as participation in the National Conference on Volunteerism and Service in June 2012.
Brigitta Witt, the vice president for corporate responsibility for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, said, ‘We are so proud of the progress we’ve made in the last year since the introduction of Hyatt Thrive, and we are committed to focusing on projects that contribute to the prosperity, health and advancement of the many communities around the world that our hotels call home.
While June is our official volunteer and service month, our efforts extend well beyond this – we are working each and every day to involve ourselves in initiatives that promote community engagement and environmental stewardship and that truly help to make a difference in the lives of our guests, associates, owners and neighbours.’
As a part of the company initiative, named Hyatt Thrive, team members from the corporate headquarters and from area Hyatt hotels including the Park Hyatt Chicago, Hyatt Regency Chicago and Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, will be participating in programmes to benefit the community.
Globally, employees at Hyatt hotels will also be working with their local communities in the month of June to offer aid and support to the most underprivileged members of their neighbourhoods. The programmes will include voluntary work, financial help, as well as conducting educational programmes and workshops.
