In 2018 THLA announced a new partnership with BEST, a national leading provider of human trafficking awareness training.
This partnership will give THLA members free access to online human trafficking training for all hotel staff.
BEST’s online human trafficking training program was created specifically for the hotel industry, and it will help your staff learn how to recognize the signs of human trafficking and take steps to stop it from occurring.
The training modules are available in English and Spanish, and there is a separate component specifically for management-level employees.
Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking (BEST) is the first organization in the country entirely dedicated to working with all types of employers to prevent labor and sex trafficking.
BEST provides consultation and training to public employers and private businesses focused on reducing human trafficking while mitigating the reputational, legal, and financial risks to the business.
Since 2012, BEST has developed nationally recognized models to leverage the power of business to disrupt trafficking and has trained thousands of employees to identify and respond to suspected cases of trafficking.
The mission of BEST is to align and equip leaders to use the power of business to prevent human trafficking. Using Awareness, Consultation, Training, and Safe Jobs (ACTS)—BEST helps businesses implement best practices to prevent human trafficking.
