How a brand reflects business integrity

How a brand reflects business integrity

Blog posts   •   Apr 15, 2019 06:36 GMT

The first entry of the BusinessDictionary defines integrity as the “Strict adherence to a moral code, reflected in transparent honesty and complete harmony in what one thinks, says, and does.” At CWT we could not agree more with this definition. For us, our brand goes beyond a manifesto created by the marketing department and reflects what we all think, how we act, and how we live.

​Don’t be stingy: Let employees keep their miles

Blog posts   •   Apr 04, 2019 09:21 GMT

I’ll concede that the title of this blog is a little clickbaity. Most companies have seen the light on this once-thorny issue.

Then hotels introduced a big fluffy, white bed, and just like that basic bedding was no longer acceptable to travelers.
