In A Hyatt World We Make a Difference

Hyatt’s fifth annual Month of Global Community Service took place last month and thousands of colleagues from around the world rallied together to make a change in the communities they call home. In total, more than 200 Hyatt hotels and offices in 41 countries participated – at total of 19,000 hours!

With activities big and small, from tree planting on Earth Day to hosting children in hotels to learn about hospitality business, to preserving an elephant habitat in Bangkok and beautifying schools, our collective efforts made a tremendous impact in the lives of the people around the world.

Watch. Smile. Be Inspired.

TGTS_Award_2014It’s time to start your ovens because The Good Taste Series regional cook-offs have begun!

Back for a second year in a row, The Good Taste Series is making a triumphant return throughout the Americas. From now through July 1, the regional cook-offs will produce 12 culinarians that will travel and compete in the final event later this year.

For 2015, chefs competing in the regional competitions will be judged on two plates: Plate A will align with Hyatt’s Sustainable Seafood philosophy, and the ingredients used to prepare the dish must be locally-influenced. The second plate, Plate B, must be a vegan option and qualify as a healthy menu option. Each contestant will serve and explain their dishes to a judging panel.

Supporting Nepal’s Relief Efforts

As the world continues to focus on the devastating situation in Nepal, we want to provide updates based on what we are hearing from the team at Hyatt Regency Kathmandu.

The hotel’s staff continues to work tirelessly since the quake struck to support guests, colleagues, and neighbors. More than 1,000 people have set up temporary shelter on the hotel’s adjacent land and grounds, thanks to Hyatt Regency Kathmandu’s ownership.

Hotel staff are also working with engineers to certify the building is safe. Once deemed safe, the hotel will host several of the international organizations responding to the quake, which plan to use the hotel and its facilities as a base for relief operations.

To help support the community, Hyatt has also announced a $100,000 USD donation to Mercy Corps, our global humanitarian relief partner, in their emergency efforts to provide immediate care and long-term recovery of the affected communities.
