Education & Personal Advancement
Cultivating Our Future Workforce
As our worldwide presence continues to expand, so will our need to hire talented individuals to provide world-renowned authentic hospitality to our guests. Through global and national partnerships, we provide valuable skills training and hospitality scholarships to individuals who may otherwise not have had such opportunities.
- Through the Hyatt Hotels Fund for Minority Lodging Management Students, we provide financial aid to minority students pursuing a degree in hotel management. To date, we have awarded more than $550,000 in scholarships to 275 students via an endowment fund managed through a partnership with the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Foundation.
- Located adjacent to the Chinese University of Hong Kong campus, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Sha Tin collaborates with the School of Hotel and Tourism Management to offer students an opportunity to integrate business theories with hospitality practices. The partnership provides students with stimulating opportunities to learn skills in the classroom and apply their knowledge through hotel internships.
- Through our Corporate Management or Leadership Trainee program, recent university graduates participate in rotational programs to learn about hotel management as they prepare to assume full-time positions with Hyatt.
- We support military veteran hiring and provide special considerations for interviewing qualified military veteran applicants. Our partners in this commitment include Military Spouse Employment Partnership, Partnership for Youth Success, Bradley Morris, Vetcentral.com, Veterans.jobs, and Employer Partnership of Armed Forces
