Wyndham among Best Employers for Diversity
Wyndham Destinations, the world’s largest vacation ownership and exchange company, has been named on Forbes magazine’s Best Employers for Diversity list.
Forbes, in partnership with Statista, has released its second annual list of America’s Best Employers for Diversity. The list is a ranking of 500 employers across all industries in the United States, based on surveying thousands of employees and examining employer diversity policies, as well as diversity in executive suites and on boards.
Wyndham Destinations was created in 2018 after spinning off Wyndham Hotels and Resorts as an independent company.
Kimberly Marshall, Wyndham Destinations chief human resources officer, said: “As the world’s largest vacation ownership and exchange company, Wyndham Destinations serves four million members and owner families every year by providing great vacations to customers around the world.
“We recognise that diversity of thought, culture and expertise positively fuels the guest experiences we deliver and strengthens the collaborative operation of our workforce. We cultivate an inclusive and diverse environment enabling our global team of more than 25,000 associates to realize their full potential.”
The Wyndham Destinations Inclusion and Diversity Strategy includes:
- A recruitment programme to develop a diverse pipeline of talent that includes candidates from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and experiences, including women, people of color, veterans, those with disabilities, mature job seekers and more.
- A comprehensive training and development curriculum that includes Diversity and Inclusion principles for the entire workforce.
- A host of Associate Business Groups for various cultural affinities, all designed for employees to engage in the business expansion process, networking, personal development and affiliation with colleagues across the business.
- A global supplier diversity programme to increase the company’s network of minority vendors and other diverse suppliers.
Wyndham Destinations is committed to being an employer and neighbour of choice in the communities where it has a presence. The company’s commitment is recognised through prestigious awards such as Forbes’ Best Employers for New Grads, Newsweek’s 100 Greenest Companies, Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index, and Ethisphere Institute’s World’s Most Ethical Companies, amongst others.
