Marriott Creates Winning Workplace

BETHESDA, Md., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Marriott International has been honored again this year with three awards from the Alliance for Workplace Excellence (AWE). The company received the 2013 Workplace Excellence Award, the 2013 Health & Wellness Trailblazer Award, and the 2013 Diversity Champion Award, which was just introduced this year to recognize companies for their diversity and inclusion practices.


"We are extremely proud to receive these awards, which help demonstrate Marriott's enduring commitment to creating an excellent workplace," said David Rodriguez, executive vice president and chief human resources officer. "Marriott strives to support the personal and professional growth of all our associates. We offer a variety of work-life programs that encourage associates who not only come to Marriott for a job, but stay for a career—because this is a place where you can feel at home, where you belong."

As described by AWE, all award applicants undergo a rigorous assessment process led by an independent review panel of professors, PhD professionals, and doctoral candidates in business, industrial and organizational psychology, and human resources. Award winners demonstrated merit in each of the following categories: workforce demographics; management practices; employee engagement; corporate social responsibility; diversity and inclusion; total rewards programs and benefits; health & wellness programs and initiatives; and an employee voice survey.  The Diversity Champion award winners were based on their Diversity and Inclusion practices in the following categories:  leadership; workforce demographics; employee programs and communication; corporate philanthropy; diversity recruitment; inclusion programs; supplier diversity; diversity in products and services.
