Gulph Creek Hotels has adopted Roar for Good’s AlwaysOn staff safety platform as part of a multisite partnership agreement. The technology aims to enhance monitoring capabilities and deliver a quicker response time to on-site safety threats for shift workers and housekeeping staff.

“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 morale of housekeepers and back-of-house staff,” said Roar for Good CEO and co-founder Yasmine Mustafa. “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.”

The partnership will initially consist of three properties under Gulph Creek Hotels’ management company, including the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Berwyn, Pa., Homewood Suites in Eatontown, N.J., and Home2 Suites by Hilton in Downingtown, Pa. There are plans to expand to several other locations in the first quarter of 2021. 

Gulph Creek Hotels’ Principal Amy Gancasz said AlwaysOn eliminates blind spots and reduces threats through deterrence. “With the pandemic impacting work schedules and staffing needs, this partnership brings our team closer together at a time when we need it most,” said Gancasz.
