- Pizza Hut
- Senior Living Works
- University of Texas Medical Branch
Wyndham is also working closely with the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) and the AHLA Foundation to identify and make available additional relevant work opportunities for hospitality professionals, available on AHLA’s website.
“In such difficult and destabilizing times, it’s more important than ever for businesses to come together to help serve those who need us most,” said Mary Falvey, chief administrative officer at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Our team members are the best of the best – their passion for hospitality makes them ideal candidates to help fill these essential positions on a temporary basis. We’re grateful to partner with other leading companies who recognize and celebrate the skillset and service these team members can provide while the hotel industry works to overcome the impact of this crisis.”
