Hyatt's global corporate responsibility platform, Hyatt Thrive, is designed to help make their communities places where their associates are proud to work, guests want to visit, neighbors want to live and owners want to invest.
It reflects their belief that no one better understands a community's most pressing issues – and their solutions – than those who live and work there. Recognizing that community needs in Albuquerque are vastly different from those in Amman, they’ve given Hyatt Thrive the balance of focus and flexibility to maximize local efforts and create a significant global impact.
Harnessing the power of the company more than 90,000 associates at over 480 properties around the world, Hyatt Thrive brings together teams of passionate people to focus on local projects that contribute to the prosperity and well-being of their communities. Its design draws on the knowledge and insight of a global cross section of stakeholders – including corporate leadership, property owners and associates throughout their organization, community leaders and guests. And it builds on the company’s rich history of community engagement, environmental stewardship and strong financial performance.
To achieve their goals, Hyatt Thrive focuses on four areas that the company believe are essential to a thriving community:
Economic Development & Investment
Education & Personal Advancement
Health & Wellness
