Wyndham Destinations expands Orlando call centre
Wyndham Destinations is set to add 140 jobs to its South Orlando call centre operations as part of an expansion to support the ongoing growth of its vacation club business.
The company is the world’s largest vacation ownership and exchange company, and its two largest vacation clubs, Club Wyndham and WorldMark by Wyndham, are experiencing strong growth as they expand marketing partnerships with popular consumer brands, driving new interest in their timeshare products.
The company is nearly doubling the size of its leased offices at 8403 South Park Circle to 42,000 square feet, expanding into space previously occupied by other hospitality companies.
It is also investing $4.5 million to upgrade office spaces, add new furniture and invest in technology to provide a comfortable, modern workspace for its growing workforce.
Geoff Richards, chief operating officer of Wyndham Vacation Clubs, said: “Orlando is our home, and we continue to invest in our growth here as we look to put the world on vacation.
“The timeshare industry is growing in the US and globally, and because of the concentration of experienced talent in Orlando, this is the right place for us to expand.”
There are currently 40 marketing executive positions open at the call centre, with an additional 100 jobs to be filled during the first quarter of 2020. Construction of the new office space will be completed in April 2020.
Since becoming an independent company last year, Wyndham Destinations has unleashed innovation across the organisation to re-imagine how travellers vacation.
With a new owner base made up of 60% millennials and Gen Xers, the company is growing with its customers. Already a leader, with the largest timeshare owner base and more resorts than the next two largest vacation ownership companies combined, Wyndham Destinations is now forging a path for the evolution of the industry.
*Wyndham Destinations vacation clubs feature a flexible points system that allows owners to book stays at more than 220 Wyndham vacation club resorts or exchange at 4,300 affiliated resorts in 110 countries with the RCI exchange network.
