Understanding the demands of the new reality in the field of hospitality, RedDoorz Philippines has continuously worked to expand the number of hotels that implemented the HygienePass Certification Program.
Launched last June 2020, the new initiative aims to equip hotels with an industry-wide cleanliness and sanitation certification which is co-created with local medical experts and also aligned with local government guidelines. Currently, RedDoorz has successfully managed to onboard 100 HygienePass certified hotels across the country.
This roster includes hotels such as RedDoorz @ EDSA Pasay Metro Manila, RedDoorz Plus near San Pedro Cathedral, RedDoorz Plus @ Poblacion District Davao, RedDoorz Plus @ Jones Avenue Cebu, and RedDoorz @ Kilometer 1 Roxas City. Expanding its reach beyond its own chain of hotels, the HygienePass Certification Program has also onboarded several non-RedDoorz hotels which is a testament that the program is effective and contributes to faster re-opening of the tourism industry. RedDoorz targets to implement the HygienePass for more than 250 hotels across the country.
As one of the first certification programmes in the industry, HygienePass leads the way in enabling hotel and accommodation players to easily follow the requirements of the new normal caused by COVID-19 by maintaining a set of robust cleanliness, hygiene, and sanitation protocols. The certification serves as a hygiene and sanitation “seal” that can help better inform essential workers, frontline health workers, and local travelers when booking hotels.
The certification program is also expected to help boost domestic tourism and rejuvenate the economy by allowing hotel and accommodation establishments to operate in the new environment.
In parallel, RedDoorz has been expanding its community efforts by providing long stays for essential workers, care kits for frontline health workers, and even temporary shelters for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and stranded individuals since COVID19 emerged. In fact, the first batch of HygienePass certified hotels are now accepting essential workers and travelers for cities under MGCQ.
