We thought it important to share a message that Rob Palleschi sent to all team members and franchise partners today.
Dear Valued Colleagues,
At Motel 6 we respect, value and actively celebrate diversity. We are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and is treated equitably – from our team members to our owners to our guests.
I am writing to you today because I am deeply disturbed by the increased violence against Asian Americans. These incidents are cruel, scary, and unacceptable. At a time when the world seems more divided than ever, we must stand together with our Asian American colleagues, guests and neighbors. We will not tolerate violence, discrimination, or racism of any kind because our company is committed to keeping the light on for everyone.
To our team members on the front lines, I ask you to be vigilant and stay aware of any potential violence. Stand up for one another, and our guests, by staying true to our company values of care and respect, and speaking up when you see bias or discrimination.
Now is the time to come together as a Motel 6 family to support each other and do our part to be the light in our communities.
