Corporate Responsibility At Core Of Hyatt Business Strategy With Committed Drive To Enthuse Youngsters In Literacy
While the internet and digital communications have brought Hong Kong great benefits, it is also resulting in a shrinking of the book reading population. Lesser privileged Hong Kongers are more likely to live in a non-working household and overcrowded housing. Literacy skills can help break this cycle of disadvantage. This is why Hyatt believes so strongly in its collaboration with Bring Me a Book, a non-profit dedicated to strengthening language and literacy skills of underserved children.
“We at Hyatt are delighted to be part of this special event, which raises the importance of literacy amongst young children in Hong Kong,” said David Udell, Group President, Asia Pacific, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. “The event gives Hyatt associates a real chance to give back to the community in which they live and work.”
This year, Hyatt’s Bring Me a Book takes the initiative to Anani Kindergarten, a school in need located in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong. The Hyatt Hong Kong Support Centre colleagues, who are from diversified cultural background, brought their love of reading to 40 students aged between 4 and 5 years old.
The global corporate responsibility platform, Hyatt Thrive, continues to give back to the community, making the Hyatt associates proud of their workplace. Hyatt’s month of global community service is a key tenant of Hyatt Thrive, the company’s corporate responsibility platform that aims to do one thing – help communities thrive – by focusing on four key areas: environmental sustainability, economic development and investment, education and personal advancement, and health and wellness.
