ROAR for Good is thrilled to announce a new multisite partnership with Gulph Creek Hotels, delivering tour AlwaysOn Staff Safety Platform across three of the chain’s sites to improve staff safety and wellbeing while at work. We have rolled out our technology across three sites so far:

1. Homewood Suites in Eatontown, NJ — 131 rooms
2. Home2Suites in Downington, PA — 115 rooms
3. Fairfield Inn & Suites in Berwyn, PA — 124 rooms

This is just the beginning and there are plans to expand panic button capabilities across more of the chain’s 20 East Coast sites in the next year as an integral part of the Gulph Creek Hotels commitment to employee safety, health, and wellness.

Working closely with and management and staff at group, co-founder Doug McBreaty had this to say:

“We carefully vetted and tested this technology solution with our staff, to make sure it was something that they wanted to implement. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and we knew ROAR for Good was the right partner for us. Not only do they align with our mission and goals, but they provide a layer of security that allows our staff to be more efficient and productive throughout their shift.”

ROAR for Good provides smart and discreet panic button devices that are worn by housekeepers and hotel staff to provide a safety net in the workplace. Founded in 2014, our technology was among the first on the market, and by 2017 we were a market leader with sales in over 45 countries. In response to our latest partnership, our CEO Yasmine Mustafa had this to say:

“We know there’s a great deal of health and economic uncertainty in the hotel industry today, but general managers and hotel owners recognize the urgency to improve safety, security, and with it, the morale of housekeepers and back of house staff. We’re proud to be able to bring our best-in-class panic button solution to Gulph Creek Hotels, a leading brand that has demonstrated a long-time commitment to its employees’ health and wellness.”

ROAR for Good believes that everyone has the right to work in a safe and supportive environment, and as panic button laws roll out across the US, both the industry and government is beginning to recognize the importance of discreet devices that can summon help quickly to a staff members location.

This is, in part, thanks to the Hands Off Pants On movement and the 5-Star Promise, that have highlighted the scale of worker harassment in an industry that has a large majority of female staff. Our aim is to continue working with industry-leading hotel chains to foster inclusive workplaces where everyone is “empowered to thrive”. We commend Gulph Creek Hotels commitment and look forward to celebrating future partnerships.
