Why Work from Hyatt?
The thought process behind the “Work from Hyatt” program is sensible. Hyatt states that working from home can be chaotic at the best of times, but the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is making things more difficult. With kids schooling from home, it can be challenging to get work done while juggling other commitments.
A working vacation is an ideal way, therefore, to ensure you can accomplish all of your work while also enjoying a relaxing escape from the real world. For current World of Hyatt loyalty program members, and those with Hyatt credit cards, it may be an enticing offer worth considering.
