CHICAGO—Vi, national developer, owner and operator of luxury retirement and senior living communities across the United States, has established partnerships with leading global hospitality companies Hilton and Hyatt to provide much needed jobs to workers at these corporations who have experienced layoffs or been furloughed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the ramifications of the novel coronavirus continue to play out globally, it is clear that the hospitality industry has been drastically impacted, marking economic uncertainty for the millions of Americans working in the hospitality space. Vi is among other leading companies, such as Amazon, CVS, Walgreens and more, to open doors to new opportunities for American workers, connecting them with jobs at Vi communities across the country.

“While the hospitality industry is experiencing unprecedented challenges, this is a global fight that we are all facing together,” said Judy Whitcomb, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Learning, and Organizational Development at Vi. “We are proud to partner with leading organizations like Hilton and Hyatt during these unprecedented times to offer career opportunities to workers in the hospitality industry who have suddenly found themselves without a job in the wake of this pandemic. We look forward to extending our hospitality culture to individuals impacted by a reduction in-force.”

Certified as a Great Place to Work and ranked #26 on Glassdoor’s 2020 Best Places to Work, Vi is consistently recognized as an award-winning organization committed to employee development. The company offers customer service, culinary, dining, maintenance and housekeeping professionals a variety of temporary, part-time, and full-time positions in desirable locations across the United States including Scottsdale, Naples, Miami, West Palm Beach, Chicago, Denver, San Diego and Silicon Valley. Vi offers a robust collection of employee benefits as well as a number of training and development programs, including tuition reimbursement, a 24-hour online university, and free Rosetta Stone language training.

Blending the best of a five-star resort lifestyle with senior living, Vi operates continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), which provide residents with independent living as well as a continuum of care on-site, including assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing.
