Human Trafficking in the Hospitality Industry

Kim Carson, Training Manager, Rosen Hotels

April 10, 2019

The fight against Human Trafficking in the Hospitality Industry is steadily on the rise and most prevalent in hotels, and motels. They are an attractive target for Human Trafficking because of the privacy and anonymity our industry offers. However, human trafficking also occurs at sporting events, theme parks, cruise ships, and many other areas in the tourism industry. Human Trafficking is a $150 Billion Dollar industry, and because human trafficking is so diverse, we can't fight it all at once and there are no single, black or white solutions. Training our front line employees on how to identify and respond to the signs of human trafficking is imperative to the safety of victims, guests and fellow associates. This training will incorporate education and warning signs for various operations to include food and beverage outlets, housekeeping and other in room departments, front desk, bellstand and valet associates.

Harassment in Hospitality

Patrick Yearout, Director of Recruiting & Training, Ivar's Restaurants

April 11, 2018

The numbers are staggering: according to various surveys on the hospitality industry, as many as 90% of female employees and 70% of male employees have experienced some form of sexual harassment. And can you guess what the #1 field is in terms of workplace sexual harassment claims filed in the United States from 2005 to 2015? According to the EEOC, it’s “accommodation and food services.”

Join Patrick Yearout, Director of Recruiting and Training for Ivar’s Restaurants and Past President of CHART, to explore the issue of harassment in hospitality and learn what you can do to protect your employees, your guests, and your brand.
