Wyndham Worldwide and Wyndham Timeshare Honored by Working Mother Magazine

Once again, a timeshare company earns honors as a top employer. This time the kudos go to Wyndham Worldwide, the parent company of Wyndham Hotels and Wyndham Vacation Ownership, for making the Working Mother Magazine 100 Best Companies List.

Employing nearly 17,000 people, 54 percent of the Wyndham workforce is female. Mary Falvey, Chief Human Resource Officer and Executive Vice President of Wyndham Worldwide, explains the company’s mindset like this, “As a mother myself, I can personally attest to Wyndham Worldwide’s passion to make our company a great place for women, especially moms, to work and pursue their careers. Securing a spot on Working Mother’s list is particularly exciting for us because we continually look to introduce new programs, opportunities and resources for all of our associates. We fully admire and support our company’s moms and their desire and ability to balance the rewarding yet demanding job of being a mother with their professional goals and responsibilities.”

Companies making the prestigious list were evaluated based on a 600-question survey. The questionnaire looked at workforce issues, childcare, compensation, flexibility, leave policies, and other criteria that simply set some employers apart from the rest. In this year’s evaluation, a special emphasis was given to flexibility, benefits, and paternal leave policies.

Here are some of the perks and benefits that helped Wyndham earn this recognition:

  • Associated receive large discounts at thousands of luxury resorts.
  • Employees working in timeshare exchange and Wyndham timeshare rentals earn a free seven-day resort stay each year.
  • Flex time is the norm, with many associates telecommuting, compressing their work weeks or adjusting their days around their children’s schedule.
  • Wyndham timeshare’s At-Home Agent program allows customer service representatives to work full-time from home. (Curious how well this works? Studies have shown that the performance of At-Home Agents meets or exceeds that of their peers in the office.)
  • The Wyndham headquarters offers employees use of a 6,300 square foot fitness center that is open from 6:30 AM to 7:30 PM.

When you think about it, a timeshare company really should have a special understanding of the physical and psychological benefits of rest, relaxation, and leave time. And you have to think that all those well-vacationed Wyndham timeshare employees are relaxed, focused, and enthusiastic to help their timeshare owners and future owners enjoy all that Wyndham timeshare has to offer.
