Woodloch generates the most tourism dollars in the Northern Pocono Mountains area and attracts welcomes nearly 100,000 visitors per year.
On top of all this, Woodloch is very important to Northeast Pennsylvania’s business economy. The all-inclusive resort has always felt strongly that the community is as much a part of the family as, well, the family. Family-owned and operated for 60 years, Woodloch consistently strives to make a difference in the community whether it be on a local, national, or global level. This effort begins with its staff.
Woodloch is the largest employer in Pennsylvania’s Wayne and Pike Counties, employing over 1,200 staff members. It is worth noting that nearly 20% of Woodloch’s employees have at least 10 years of dedicated service, and 80 of these staff members have worked for the family resort for at least 20 years. Considering that the hospitality industry is well-known for its high annual turnover rate, with recent estimates at over 72%, this is certainly a notable accomplishment.
As our President and C.E.0., John Kiesendahl, summarizes, “Simply put, we couldn’t do it without our staff. We have a beautiful property with wonderful amenities, accommodations and food, but without our employees, we couldn’t achieve the level of success that we have over the past 60 years. We take tremendous pride in our staff and feel it’s necessary to acknowledge what they bring to our business.”
