Herndon, VA (PRWEB) July 31, 2007
BridgeStreet Worldwide is pleased to announce a record number of BridgeStreet associates have received certification in the first Corporate Housing Providers Association's (CHPA) certification program. Representing 15% of certificate holders, BridgeStreet leadership and the company’s Premier Global Alliance Partners proudly retain the highest number of Certified Corporate Housing Professional (CCHP) members among the industry.
The recently created CCHP recognition reflects a dedication to setting the highest standards for professionals in the corporate housing industry and is awarded to those who successfully complete a certification examination. The two-hour, 100 question examination tests three areas of knowledge: operations, financial management and sales and marketing. Nationally recognized subject matter experts and psychometricians worked to ensure the exam’s content and format were statistically accurate and valid.
The CHPA Education Committee, comprised of corporate housing professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to ensure integrity of the program, oversees the CCHP program. BridgeStreet’s Natalie Hickernell, Vice President of Human Resources, assisted in developing the certification program as a member of the CHPA Education Committee and the Certification Development Panel Subcommittee.
“We are proud that BridgeStreet and our Premier Global Alliance Partners are leading the industry with the number of certified associates on our team,” said Lee Curtis, President and CEO of BridgeStreet Worldwide and current CHPA President. “Participating in this certification program is yet another way in which BridgeStreet clients can be assured we are holding true to our commitment of superior services and quality accommodations and our promise of making corporate housing easy.
