Because Pets are Family Too - Kimpton Hotels Announces Pet Insurance for Employees

Kimpton Hotels has decided to extend care to the pets of all employees through a partnership with Pet Assure to bring additional pet care benefits to employees.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants Pet Assure, a comprehensive pet benefit program is designed to make pet care more affordable for its members by offering a variety of programs.

The full program, in addition to providing savings at network veterinarians and pet related merchants, provides all pets with an ID tag bearing a unique ID and photo number which can be accessed 24 hours a day. Anyone finding a tagged pet can call the toll free number and the caring representatives will contact the family and arrange for them to be reunited with their pet. Members who have their pet returned to them state that this part of the program is priceless. Additionally, the Pet Card brings savings at the large network of national and local merchants.

As many employers have discovered, many employees have pets, keeping pictures of them on their desks and regarding them as family members. Kimpton Hotels views Pet Assure as a quality voluntary benefit that helps keep them on the competitive edge of attracting and retaining qualified staff.

“We know how important pets are to people, they're part of the family,' said Steve Pinetti, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Kimpton Hotels. “We want to do everything we can to take care of all members of our employees families and to make sure they are all safe and happy. These pets are an extension of the Kimpton family.'
