The Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) is the professional trade association exclusively dedicated to supporting corporate housing professionals and expanding the corporate housing industry around the world. CHPA’s Company Accreditation Program was designed to recognize and elevate companies who have proven their legitimacy, professionalism and commitment to industry best practices and ethics when providing corporate housing services.
CHPA announced last week that Preferred Corporate Housing, a national corporate housing provider servicing more than 42,000 locations across North America, would be the first to achieve the ‘CHPA Accredited Company’ endorsement.
“This is a program we truly value and believe that our clients and supplier partners will value as well,” said Preferred Corporate Housing President, Samantha Elliott. “There are so many ‘fly-by-night’ companies out there that are causing damage to our industry’s reputation with their unethical business practices and fraudulent behavior. CHPA’s Company Accreditation Program is a first step in highlighting which providers are operating within the appropriate standards and best practices.” said Elliott.
In order to be eligible to receive the ‘CHPA Accredited Company’ endorsement, Preferred Corporate Housing had to submit financial history, operational documents relating to business continuity and data protection policies, proof of appropriate business insurance coverage, and letters of reference from peers, suppliers and current clients. Preferred Corporate Housing was also eligible for this endorsement due to its active involvement and leadership within CHPA over the past years, and because all Preferred Corporate Housing’s Senior Managers have earned and maintained the ‘Certified Corporate Housing Professional (CCHP)’ designation.
“We believe that any company that might be sourcing corporate housing services should only want to work with providers who have received CHPA’s Company Accredited endorsement,” said Jon Lanclos, PCH Founder. “This accreditation highlights those companies who have proven themselves to be the best examples of corporate housing industry leaders.”
