wyndham worldwideWyndham Worldwide  today signed the Statement of Support of the Employer Support of Guard & Reserve (ESGR) at its Parsippany, NJ campus. In a ceremony attended by ESGR officials and Wyndham Worldwide associates, the Company became an official member of the Statement of Support Program, a Department of Defense initiative that aims to increase employer support for military service in the National Guard and Reserve.

 

“At Wyndham Worldwide, supporting our nation’s active service members and veterans is part of our commitment to the communities around us,” said Patricia Lee, senior vice president and chief diversity officer, Wyndham Worldwide. “We recognize the unique backgrounds and experiences our service members have to offer and we view veteran recruitment as an ingredient to our success.”

 

To deepen its commitment to recruiting and retaining veterans, Wyndham Worldwide has recently partnered with Bridging the Gap, a nonprofit organization that provides military veterans with career coaching and networking opportunities. “Translating skills developed during military service to competencies needed in a corporate setting is an important aspect of effective veteran recruitment,” says Eric Thompson, vice president, operational excellence and former National Guardsman. “Bridging the Gap is providing guidance and connections to veteran job seekers, and we’re pleased to be a part of this employer-patriot partnership.”

 

Once a member of the team, the Company offers Impacting Veteran Opportunities at Wyndham Worldwide, or I-VOW, an associate business group dedicated to professional development and the sharing of ideas and experiences for veterans in the workplace.

 

From recruiting efforts, to a dedicated vacation club for military, to doing business with veteran-owned suppliers, Wyndham Worldwide participates in a range of programs and initiatives to welcome those who serve:

 

 

Supporting all who serve is an important aspect of Wyndham Worldwide’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. “At Wyndham Worldwide, diversity is at the heart of what we do,” said Lee. “Travel enables people of varied nationalities and backgrounds to meet and experience different cultures, raising our collective understanding and appreciation for each other around the world. And that includes the unique views and experiences our veterans have, and can contribute to our mission to welcome people to travel the way they want.”
