To protect their staff from harassment, Marriott and Hilton will distribute panic buttons

Following the #MeToo movement and its various revelations, hotel groups are thinking about ways to better protect their employees.

Marriott International and Hilton Hotels and Resorts are considering equipping their employees with electronic tools to alert their colleagues in case of an emergency. The world leader is developing an alert box for its housekeeping teams. In their video, we see a chambermaid using the box, which immediately alerts hotel security to her position and emergency situation.

“No one should ever be fearful doing their job, least of all associates on-property who are so vital to the success of our company and our industry,” said Arne Sorenson, President and Chief Executive Officer, Marriott International. “The safety of everyone at our properties is always a top priority as is deterring and combatting harassment of any kind. I’m deeply proud to say our entire industry is unified around these important goals.”
