Congratulations Again, Marriott Vacation Club, Best Companies to Work For Award

For the fourteenth consecutive year, Marriott International (Marriott timeshare) has been recognized by FORTUNE magazine as one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For.” Additionally, Marriott is one of only thirteen companies to have made the list every single year, since FORTUNE began awarding this honor in 1998.

Among companies with 100,000 or more employees, Marriott was ranked number 2, and among companies of all sizes, Marriott ranked 71, overall. Moreover, FORTUNE magazine is not the only workplace honor Marriott has received, having also been recognized by Working Mother, LATINA Style, Executive Travel, Computerworld, BusinessWeek, DiversityInc magazines and numerous other publications and associations. Three hundred eleven companies took part in this year’s FORTUNE magazine competition. Scoring includes the results of the Institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company.

Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the results of the survey responses regarding how employees feel about job satisfactions, camaraderie, and management’s credibility. The final third of a company’s score is based on how the company itself responds to detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition programs and diversity.

David Rodriguez, executive vice president of Global Human Resources says, “Marriott opens doors to a world of opportunities, wherever your journey takes you. Our company’s enduring “spirit to serve” culture provides associates a family environment of teamwork, trust, and cooperation where we value the contributions of our diverse global workforce.”

A complete list of all the companies honored by FORTUNE will be available in the February 7 issue or online at
