Human Rights & Ethics

As one of the world’s leading hospitality and leisure-based companies, Wyndham Worldwide is committed to providing amazing experiences for its associates, customers and communities, while protecting human rights within its sphere of influence. The Company is proud to partner with many leading organizations, including the International Tourism Partnership, ECPAT-USA and Polaris Project, who share the same commitment to human rights and the safety of children around the world.

In 2007, the Wyndham Worldwide Board of Directors adopted a Human Rights Policy Statement. The Company’s position on human rights reflects its commitment to conduct business in a manner consistent with these principles, and to protect human rights within the Company’s sphere of influence.

Wyndham Worldwide condemns all forms of exploitation of children. The Company does not hire child labor, and supports the elimination of exploitive child labor. The Company also is supportive of laws duly enacted to prevent and punish the crime of sexual exploitation of children, and cooperates with law enforcement authorities to address any such instances. In 2011, Wyndham Worldwide became one of the largest U.S. hospitality companies to take a stand against the commercial sexual exploitation of children by signing the Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct (The Code).

As Wyndham Worldwide employs people and conducts business all around the world, our operations are also subject to many different laws, customs and cultures. All associates are required to obey the law and comply with specific standards relating to legal obligations, ethics and business conduct.

The Company’s approach to ethical practices begins at the top and cascades throughout the organization. The Business Principles, The Company’s Code of Conduct and Ethics, provides guidance on ethical issues and promotes a lawful and ethical business environment for Wyndham Worldwide and its associates.
