Waxpol Hotels & Resorts has won the Trav Talk -WTM World Travel Leaders Award, given based on key themes of this year’s WTM London: Reconnect. Rebuild. Innovate. The hospitality group was given this honour because it set up a COVID taskforce to help its teams to stay safe, providing access to medical care if needed, and extending additional financial support. There have been no lay-offs or pay cuts. The company has also supported local schools by providing separate toilets for girls; desks and chairs for classrooms; library and sports facilities; screens with internet connectivity for digital education; and playground equipment.
Furthermore, it worked with others in the industry to develop Covid-19 guidelines and training for homestays, camps, resorts and hotels.
