Lodging Sector Training – Inhospitable to Trafficking

BEST conducts training for hotels so that you are equipped to identify and report human trafficking.

To date, BEST has provided Inhospitable to Trafficking training to staff of over 135 hotels. As a result of our work with hotels, BEST was honored to receive the 2015 Washington Lodging Association “Allied Partner of the Year” award.

To enable more hotel employees to access our training we have developed an online version of our well-established curriculum. The training explains the ugly truth of trafficking and plainly describes laws and concrete steps on how frontline staff can personally make a difference in the lives of children and adults who are exploited every day.

“BEST training was instrumental in assisting my staff and the local authorities to not only let people know “not in my hotel,” but also help these men and women that are trafficked daily in our hotels. The training I received was certainly an eye opener for me and my staff when I brought the information back to them.”

–Warren Brown, General Manager
