The pandemic (and frankly life’s everyday challenges) has taken a toll on our collective mental health, and we want to start talking about it, no stigma attached. That’s why we're proud to share that we’ve partnered with Talkspace to bring mental health services to our guests and over 4,000 employees. We’ll also be the first hospitality brand to extend a year-long complimentary Talkspace subscription to all of our U.S. employees – from front-line employees to managers. Read on for more.
