The Royal Resorts Employee Relief Fund was set up after Hurricane Gilbert in 1988 to help staff whose homes had been destroyed or seriously damaged by the powerful storm, and it was reactivated in 2005 in the wake of Hurricane Wilma when 283 employees sought assistance. The scope of the fund is now being expanded to help staff cope in times of need arising from illness.
Through this fund, the Royal Resorts Foundation intends to assist employees and their families in the event of grave illness, major surgery and accidents, in addition to storm damage to homes and property. It will provide care, compassion and financial support, alleviating the burden on the household at a time when problems seem insurmountable.
A committee comprised by the Resort Operations Director, the Corporate Human Resources Manager and the Chief Financial Officer administers the Royal Resorts Employee Relief Fund and aid is given on a case-by-case basis after studies and an evaluation of the circumstances.
