On the eve of the 107th International Women’s Day, Great Place to Work honored women leaders from companies on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For and Best Workplaces for Women lists, including four leaders in hospitality: Sarah Cohen, Executive Vice President, General Counsel, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts; Laura Fuentes, Senior Vice President of Talent and Rewards, Hilton; Kathleen Reidenbach, Chief Commercial Officer, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants; and Stephanie Linnartz, Chief Commercial Officer, Marriott International, Inc. The inaugural Great Place to Work For All Leadership Awards took place at the Four Seasons San Francisco on March 7.
The honorees—women leaders from companies on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For and Best Workplaces for Women lists—were chosen by senior leadership at their companies for a being the leader who has consistently played a critical role in helping her organization deliver on strategic growth and business goals by creating a high-trust culture that is a great place to work for every employee. The 77 Great Place to Work For All Awards recognized these leaders’ contributions to their businesses and fully live their companies’ values in the service to their customers, employees, and stakeholders.
In making today’s announcement, Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush says, “We are excited to celebrate the achievements of some of the top women leaders at America’s greatest companies. The companies on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For and Best Workplaces for Women are leading the conversation in workplace equality and are demonstrating to corporate America how to become more diverse, more innovative, and great places to work for all.”
“The inaugural awards ceremony is part of Great Place to Work’s challenge to inspire every employer and company to become a great workplace for every one of its employees,” Bush continues. “This maximizes revenue, profit and growth. We are committed to accelerating the maximization of all human potential that is currently underrepresented and disengaged across workplaces, with our first milestone of closing the work experience gap between women and men by 2020.”
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Marriott International, and Hilton are among the sponsors of this year’s Great Place to Work For All Summit.
