Hyatt has been recognized as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in 2013 by Glassdoor in its annual 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 wellbeing of our associates is fundamental to the success of our business, because they are the ones who provide hospitality to our guests each day,” said Robb Webb, chief human resources officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “We’re proud that our associates 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 2013 list tend to see high marks for career advancement opportunities, clear company vision and a sense of respect among colleagues. Employees submitted nearly half a million company reviews to Glassdoor during the past year. Glassdoor’s company reviews asked employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. The overall ranking for Glassdoor’s awards list was determined according to each company’s overall Glassdoor rating, which is a cumulative average rating from U.S.-based employees who elected to participate in the company review survey.
