Nov. 2012 – Partnerships should be based on trust. Based on the facts presented in this report, it is clear that many HEI’s workers, prominent community and political leaders and HEI’s anchor investors do not trust HEI. So why should you?
Oct. 2012 – By investing in HEI, you could be jeopardizing your institution’s reputation and the values it stands for. (Re)investing in HEI could place hundreds of workers at risk of more federal labor law violations and discriminatory actions.
Sept. 2012 – As an HEI hotel owner, Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers was forced to choose between ousting HEI as a risky operator or coming under greater fire from its investor. We urge you to question retaining HEI and its broken management practices.
