BETHESDA, Md., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR) announced today that for the first time it has received the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles ®  award from the National Business Group on Health. Marriott is one of only two hospitality companies recognized this year; a total of 63 U.S. employers received the award.

"The health and wellbeing of our associates are top priorities and we are committed to providing the appropriate tools to help them adopt a healthy lifestyle," said Jill Berger, vice president of health and welfare at Marriott International. "This award is a testament to not only our hard work establishing a sustainable wellness culture at Marriott, but also our passion to make choosing health every day both easy and fun."

Marriott International created its TakeCare program in 2010 to empower employees to take personal responsibility for managing their health. From worksite wellness challenges and monthly webinars, to free health coaches, assessments, maternity support and a smoking cessation program, TakeCare is helping its associates both improve and maintain their health. Furthermore, the company is piloting a new certification program to recognize its hotels that are going above and beyond to create a healthy work environment for associates. 

Brian Marcotte, President and CEO of the National Business Group on Health, commented:  "We are very pleased to honor Marriott International for its dedication to providing programs that encourage wellness and healthy lifestyles for their employees and families. Marriott is among an elite group of organizations that are leading the way to promote healthy workplaces and lifestyles. Marriott and its management team should be proud of their efforts and we congratulate them on receiving this award."

Winners of the Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles awards were honored in one of two categories: Platinum, for exemplary workplace well-being programs, cultures and results; or Gold, for creating cultural and environmental changes that support employees in their lifestyle and behavior changes. Marriott International was recognized in the Gold category.
