Hotel employees who have undergone training are more aware of trafficking when it happens – and are more willing to report it -- than those who have not been trained. That is why hotels across the country are continuously expanding training tools and resources to ensure employees remain vigilant and have a deep understanding of the most up-to-date indicators to spot human trafficking. 


Your Role in Preventing Human Trafficking: The American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute’s long-standing online training program, available through AHLEI by the AHLA partnership with Marriott International, ECPAT-USA and Polaris, addresses the issue of human trafficking and discusses the intersections between human trafficking and the hospitality industry. The training is available in 17 languages to ensure that global hospitality organizations can share this important program as widely as possible.
