@Hyatt : World of Care

Hyatt Hotels Corporation launched "World of Care" with new commitments to diversity, equity, inclusion and responsible business practices. This platform is designed to address the pressing challenges facing Hyatt colleagues, guests, owners and communities and to drive meaningful change within the hotel industry.

The launch of the World of Care platform is an opportunity to support key milestones and initiatives for Hyatt, including:

  • Sharing detailed workforce diversity data for the first time;
  • Rolling out new global human trafficking training; 
  • Improving the well-being of its colleagues worldwide through a week of specific programs and a new well-being assessment.

Hyatt's purpose - to care for people so they can be their best - guides every aspect of our business. The events of the past year have underscored the urgency for the private sector to address societal issues with empathy, clarity and accountability. World of Care reinforces Hyatt's commitment to caring for our people, our planet and our communities.

Mark Hoplamazian, Hyatt president and CEO

Hyatt improves diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) disclosures : 

At Hyatt, we know we achieve our greatest success when all colleagues feel confident bringing their whole selves to work each day. [...] Sharing our diversity data publicly and linking executive compensation to progress will ensure that DE&I is more prioritized and integrated across the company, so that Hyatt can truly reflect the diverse communities it serves and contribute to a more just world.

Malaika Myers, Hyatt's director of human resources.

Caring for people: Hyatt fights human trafficking, improves wellness and is committed to youth.

In 2021, Hyatt implemented human trafficking training, and ensured that it is mandatory for all colleagues worldwide. This training enables members of all levels and functions of Hyatt's global workforce to be alert to signs of human trafficking and take swift action to report and mitigate them.

 Hyatt focuses on the overall well-being of its colleagues, guests, owners and communities. In June, Hyatt hosted its first-ever Global Wellness Week to inspire and promote wellness among its colleagues around the world. 

Hyatt will continue to prioritize creating career pathways for troubled youth through its RiseHY program, building on the millions of dollars already donated to continue supporting young adults to help them identify and reach their full potential.

Caring for the Planet: Hyatt strives to advance environmental action

Under its 2020 environmental framework, Hyatt has met its greenhouse gas reduction goals of 25 percent per square meter early across its three regions, sourcing seafood more responsibly and setting sustainability goals with the World Wildlife Fund.

 Through World of Care, Hyatt's activities align with key aspects of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) in the pursuit of a better, more sustainable future for all.
