WHAT WE BELIEVE
Advocating for a safer hospitality industry
OUR COMMITMENT TO A SAFER HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY
We are a proud member of the hospitality industry and strongly believe in its fundamental tenets and the desire around serving the essential qualities of humanity: the need for shelter and the dedicated provision of care. It was the need to help create a safer hospitality environment for both workers and guests that led to the creation of TraknProtect, and it is this principle that guides not only our strategy, culture and actions everyday but also our commitment to prevent human trafficking in hotels.
WORKING TOWARD AN END TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING
For too many people, the hospitality industry represents not a place of welcome but one of danger and fear. Today, thousands of exploited women and children globally are trafficked through the hospitality system. Therefore, we have committed to eradicating these practices. Fortunately, we have some powerful partners in this fight, and we urge you to support them as we help make hospitality safer for all. While TraknProtect empowers employees with its staff safety buttons, our goal is to work with the hospitality industry to prevent and eradicate human trafficking in hotels.
We strongly endorse and support the efforts made by the AHLA and the major brands in the development of the 5-Star Promise to include the eradication of human trafficking and AHLA’s No Room for Trafficking. We believe that all stakeholders – the employees who service the hotels, the guests who travel as well as the solution-providers who serve the hospitality industry –have a responsibility to be active participants in this fight and we all can educate ourselves and others around us to better meet this goal.
You can learn more about the steps you can take to participate in this movement here. It is our responsibility as a community to learn how to identify signs of human trafficking with this toolkit training hotel employees by category. Also, if you witness human trafficking, you can report it in multiple ways:

Let us all come together and help bring an end to human trafficking.
