A lack of personal safety in the workplace is a growing concern for many companies worldwide. Recent data shows just how widespread and pervasive the issue is in the hospitality industry. Pressure from new legislation, labor unions, and hotel management alliances like the Five Star Promise have forced this decade’s long problem into the spotlight. To explore this issue and its future, we invited Glenn Haussman of No Vacancy News to the 2019 Amadeus Hospitality Customer Conference to host a panel on staff safety culture in hospitality.
Representatives from AHLA, TraknProtect, BluIP, Creating Revolutions, and React Mobile all shared their experience on the education, change management, and commitments needed to properly improve staff safety in any hotel.
