Hyatt has been honored as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in 2014 by Glassdoor in its sixth annual Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards. Glassdoor, a jobs and careers community website, compiles the annual award by relying solely on the input of employees, who voluntarily elect to provide feedback on their job, work environment and company through Glassdoor’s anonymous online company review survey.
“At Hyatt, the satisfaction and well-being of our associates is fundamental to the success of our business, because they are the ones who care for our guests each and every day,” said Robb Webb, Chief Human Resources Officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “We’re proud that these colleagues continue to demonstrate their appreciation for our strong workplace environment and the values, diversity and culture that define us as a global company.”
The Glassdoor Awards symbolize employees’ support for how their employers operate, drive culture and foster success. Companies on the list tend to see high marks for career advancement opportunities, clear company vision and a sense of respect among colleagues. The survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions to capture a genuine and authentic look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. It asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensations and benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values.
“Glassdoor is working to create greater workplace transparency and is committed to helping people find jobs they love,” said Glassdoor CEO & Co-founder Robert Hohman. “Through the Employees’ Choice Awards, we aim to highlight those employers that excel in keeping employees satisfied and engaged.”The 50 Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 14, 2012 and November 12, 2013. To be considered for the Best Places to Work list, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 50 approved company reviews during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
