This two-part workshop will empower you to make a difference in the lives of those who are exploited by equipping you with best practices to identify and report suspected trafficking incidents, prevent trafficking, and increase hotel safety. You will learn how to protect your hotel from legal risks, security risks, and reputational risks. You will also learn how to use BEST’s online training program to train all staff at your properties and discover ways to build upon your existing human trafficking training tools.
Part I (10:00-11:00)
Part I will guide you through BEST’s human trafficking training course. You will:
- Receive a certificate of completion for BEST’s Inhospitable to Trafficking Training Course.
- Understand trafficking, its prevalence in, and its impact on the hotel industry.

Part I is recommended for frontline supervisors and department managers (including human resources, security, front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant supervisors and managers).
Part II (11:00-12:00)
Part II provides an opportunity to speak with anti-trafficking experts. You will learn about local anti-trafficking efforts including those specific to the Eastside community, how to build relationships with relevant local law enforcement officers, and learn about the available local services for survivors.
Part II is recommended for frontline supervisors and department managers, general managers, and hotel owners who have completed Part I of this workshop or have basic knowledge of human trafficking from another training.
