Hyatt Hotel & KEC

As you know, one of KEC’s main missions is finding employment for people with intellectual and mental disabilities. KEC aims to place each of our beneficiaries in an engaging and dynamic work environment. Through the years we have developed remarkably fruitful relationships with many local companies, institutions and organizations. On-boarding and supporting employees with special needs is not always an easy process but our partners are as committed as we are to giving each individual a chance to contribute to her society.

 

One of our most successful partnerships has been with the Hyatt Hotel of Belgrade. KEC first started collaboration with the international hotel in the early 2000s and the relationship has continued to grow in the decades that followed. When we first worked together on the Hyatt’s Christmas tree decoration program, we had no idea how this relationship would develop. Then we were given a bare tree and our beneficiaries decked it out with creative decorations. Today decades later, two KEC beneficiaries, Kaca and Jelena, are employed at the Hyatt, Hyatt employees volunteer in our center and Hyatt International even recognized this powerful relationship with one of it is community grants. At one point, 8 KEC beneficiaries were engaged in various tasks at the hotel through our work engagement program. In 2020, Kaca and Jelena met all the criteria and were hired as full-fledged hotel employees. KEC is grateful to Hyatt for its partnership and its commitment to building stronger communities in the places where it works.

 

It is only with partners like Hyatt, and supporters like you, that KEC is able to able to continue its work on behalf of people with intellectual and mental disabilities.
