CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corporation has been named a recipient of the 2014 Gallup Great Workplace Award for the third consecutive year. The annual award recognizes Hyatt for having one of the most engaged and productive workforces in the world.
“Hyatt is extremely proud of our strong workplace environment, unique familial culture, and the deep emotional connections that are shared by our 95,000 colleagues around the world,” said Robb Webb, chief human resources officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “We believe that the passion and commitment of our colleagues are critical to our long-term success, and we are focused on helping one another achieve our full potential to better serve our guests each day. We are honored that our colleagues have once again reaffirmed our efforts to care for the individual by recognizing Hyatt as a best place to work.”
The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on rigorous workplace research. To be eligible for nomination, an organization has to have at least 80 percent of their global workgroup respond to the annual Gallup survey, and more than half of the collective workgroup results need a grand mean score of 4.15 or higher (out of five).
More than 76,000 Hyatt associates in 48 countries participated in the 2013 survey. The results showed that they enjoy their workplace, appreciate the professional development opportunities and training programs, and take pride in providing authentic hospitality to guests.
A panel of workplace experts evaluated applicants, and Hyatt was chosen as one of the top 35 organizations because of its strong results.
