Wyndham Vacation Ownership Named Among "Best Places to Work" in Southern Nevada

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2014) - Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE: WYN), was named as the second place winner in the large companies category of the "2014 Best Places to Work in Southern Nevada." The 2014 list, compiled by The Southern Nevada Human Resources Association, recognizes innovative people, practices and programs. With four WVO timeshare resorts, a corporate office and more than 1,600 associates with positions across consumer finance, sales and marketing, and hospitality operations in Las Vegas, WVO remains an employer of choice in the area by promoting a culture focused on learning and development, health and wellness, and giving back to the local community.

"To once again be recognized among the best of the best of the Las Vegas hospitality industry is an honor," said Sarah King, executive vice president of Human Resources for WVO. "Each and every day we strive to create an inclusive, fun and innovative workplace for our associates. This award is evidence of our efforts to encourage a positive corporate culture, driven by our passionate employees and leaders who go above and beyond."

In addition to offering a robust variety of development programs -- which includes mentor programs, rotation opportunities and tuition assistance -- associates are encouraged to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle, supported by the company's Be Well program. The Las Vegas office provides all Las Vegas area associates with a Be Well clinic, which offers an onsite Nurse Practitioner who provides care for minor illnesses as well as preventative care through wellness screenings, free of charge. In 2014, associates participated in the City of Las Vegas Corporate Challenge, which provides a healthy way for local companies and their employees to stay active in the community while adding a social component for those that want to sit on the sidelines and cheer on their colleagues.

In addition to a culture of wellbeing, associates are encouraged to support the Las Vegas community through volunteering and donations. In 2013, associates contributed over $100,000 in monetary and in-kind donations benefiting several charities, including the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation and Cure for the Kids, as well as The Painted Turtle summer camp, a part of WVO's signature charity, SeriousFun Children's Network. The funds also supported an Anti-Bullying Awareness campaign at local schools and an Angel Tree initiative, providing holiday gifts to more than 850 students at Gwendolyn Woolley Elementary School.

"One of our core values as a company is giving back to our local communities and I couldn't be more proud of our Las Vegas associates for all of the incredible work they do," added King. "The difference they're making is remarkable."
