Celebrating Hotel Heroes across the globe
The past few weeks have been challenging for our industry to say the least. As a whole, individuals and businesses are overwhelmed with grief and angst as we navigate this global pandemic. But amongst the turmoil, there has been incredible signs of hope, community and giving.
We spoke to a number of our customers to find out how they were coping right now and many of them were able to share incredible stories of how they were using this time to give back to the community, donate or provide support for their furloughed employees. We’ve collated these stories for you to in our Hotel Heroes series, below is the wonderful story from Rosewood Hotels.
As a response to the global COVID-19 pandemic Rosewood Hotels created Rosewood Raise, a relief initiative organized by their parent company, Rosewood Hotel Group, to assist our associates and local communities during these difficult and uncertain times. Through Rosewood Raise, they stand in solidarity with the whole Rosewood family, and together, support their beloved communities that have been so deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re interested in contributing to their efforts, please visit rosewoodraise.com to learn more.
In its first two weeks since founding, #RosewoodRaise has received initial pledges of close to $2 million from Rosewood Hotel Group’s corporate executives and associates, including salary contributions and a commitment from the company to match all employees cash contributions to the fund.
