Rosen Hotels & Resorts to downsize staff ‘significantly’

ORLANDO, Fla. — Editor’s note: This story is available as a result of a content partnership between WFTV and the Orlando Business Journal.

Rosen Hotels & Resorts will lay off what it calls a "substantial" number of workers on July 31 due to the negative impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy.

The Orlando-based hotel business will see a "substantial reduction" in workforce that will impact all Rosen properties and departments, the company said in a news release. The number of affected workers was not revealed.

“It is with deep personal regret that I announce a significant downsizing of staff at Rosen Hotels & Resorts,” Harris Rosen, founder, president and COO of Rosen Hotels & Resorts, said in a prepared statement. “Never in the 46-year history of my company would I have envisioned such a drastic decision. This is especially painful for me, as I consider these valued associates as extended members of the Rosen family, without whose contributions our company would never have achieved the success it has through the years.”
