OMNI HOTELS & RESORTS AND ITS TEXAS PROPERTIES DESIGNATED AS MOTHER-FRIENDLY WORKSITES
Luxury Brand and its 13 Texas Properties Recognized for its Support of Working Mothers
DALLAS (June 1, 2017)
— Omni Hotels & Resorts has been designated by the Texas Department of State Health Services as a Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite
. In addition to the luxury hotel brand’s corporate office, all Texas-based Omni properties earned the Mother-Friendly Worksite distinction because of their commitment and proactive support of mothers who continue to breastfeed as they return to the workplace. Omni, and its properties, is the only company within the hospitality industry to earn this distinction.
“As a mother, I know firsthand that balancing work while caring for an infant can be challenging, and facilitating a smooth transition back into the workplace is a natural extension of our Core Value that every Associate is a valued member of the Omni family,” said Joy Rothschild, chief human resources officer for Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We want to support all working parents as they expand their families, and we are privileged to be a recipient of this prestigious designation and recognized among a group of such prominent workplace innovators.”
The Omni corporate office and the Omni Dallas Hotel
both earned “Silver” designations for implementing more than the base level requirements to achieve “Basic” distinction. In addition to its corporate headquarters and the Omni Dallas, the Texas properties that received the “Basic” Mother-Friendly Worksite designation include:
Created by the Texas Legislature in 1995 and administered by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), the Texas Mother-Friendly Worksite Program recognizes employers like Omni with written policies reflecting their support for their breastfeeding employees. Such policies provide work schedule flexibility to allow milk expression breaks; offer a private space, other than a bathroom, where the employee can pump or breastfeed; and ensure easy access to a clean water source and hygienic milk storage arrangements.
