Tuesday, February 13, 2018
For the fourth consecutive year and sixth time overall, Wyndham Worldwide has been recognized as a 2018 World’s Most Ethical Company by Ethisphere Institute. Wyndham Worldwide is strongly committed to acting with integrity and dedication in helping people travel how they want, earning them this well-deserved praise.
2018 is the twelfth anniversary of Ethisphere and the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation. Wyndham Worldwide and others earn this recognition by aligning principle with action, making trust part of their corporate DNA, and shaping future industry standards by utilizing tomorrow’s best practices today.
“For over ten years, our associates have embodied the responsible business practices recognized today by the Ethisphere Institute,” said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and chief executive officer, Wyndham Worldwide. “As we look ahead to Wyndham Worldwide’s planned separation later this year, these are the values that we’ll hold for both new companies.”
Korin Neff, senior vice president and chief compliance officer at Wyndham Worldwide also commented that as a global hospitality company with a diverse range of business lines, ethical business practices are crucial in supporting and building great experiences for both guests and associates.
Some of the ethical practices Wyndham Worldwide strongly focused on include:
- Their global network of Compliance Champions that offer guidance on acceptable standards of business conduct for associates. This also involved providing leadership development programs that show how to make compliant and ethical decision making a part of everyday business.
- Protecting human rights by providing tools to identify human trafficking.
- Creating a diverse and inclusive workplace.
