“These added and unexpected costs are creating a great burden on our employees, and we want to take steps within our power to relieve some of that burden where we can,” said WCH Executive Vice President of Human Resources, Catherine Timmons. 

WCH will start by awarding a one-time cash stipend to all its employees, a move supported by its parent, the Tribal Council of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.  

Tribal Chairwoman Stephanie Bryan noted: “We know the importance and value of each of our employees, and it’s great to help them and their families during this pivotal time of drastic inflation... every member of our Tribal Council believes very strongly that they need to support our team at this time.” 

WCH will then roll out flexible working arrangements to help its employees minimise fuel and childcare expenses. 

The company notes that reducing commuting days from five to three would result in a 20%-40% reduction in fuel costs for its workers. Flexible working arrangements were first introduced by WCH post-pandemic when employees were slowly returning to the workplace.

“These are important dollars for the families of our team. Every dollar they don’t have to put into a gas tank is a dollar they can use elsewhere for their families,” added President and CEO of WCH Jay Dorris. 

WCH will continue to look for every opportunity to add flexibility to its employees' work schedules in ways that won't compromise the guest experience at its resorts.
