According to Fortune, this year’s list “honors the most heroic companies supporting their people and communities in the U.S. during this historically challenging year.” People analytics firm Great Place to Work surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring, and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional, and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact.
“Since the founding of our company, associates have lived our core value of putting people first. They have contributed to creating a family-like, inclusive culture that welcomes all guests and has led to business success,” said Arne Sorenson, Marriott’s president and CEO. “We are deeply honored to have been recognized by Fortune each year since the list was established in 1998.”
“Our company culture is the most important element for attracting and retaining top talent and ensuring future success,” said David Rodriguez, executive vice president and global chief human resources officer. “Our TakeCare commitment to associate wellbeing and happiness helps associates live their best lives and drives our business success.”
In 1927, newlyweds J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott started a business with a simple but powerful idea – take care of the employees, they will take care of the customers, and the customers will come back again and again. Ninety-four years later that legacy of putting people first continues to be a responsibility and a passion that drives us to earn the trust and loyalty of our associates every day. The company knows that success is never final. It’s about humble commitment that stands the test of time.
