Marriott Vacations Worldwide Makes Orlando Sentinel’s “Top 100 Companies” of 2018

Marriott Vacations Worldwide

Marriott Vacations Worldwide was named on Orlando Sentinel‘s “Top 100 Companies” list for 2018, ranking 7th in the Large Division and the highest ranked vacation ownership company. This program, created by Orlando Sentinel and Best Companies Group, recognizes Orlando’s best places to work as well as the city economy benefits, workforce, and businesses.

Determining the businesses on the list came in a two-part survey conducted by the Best Companies Group. In the first half of the survey, organizations that met the basic qualifications had their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics assessed. The second half involved an employee experience questionnaire. From there, both scores were combined and ranked in order.

In order to be considered for this list, a business must:

  • Have a facility in Central Florida
  • Have at least 15 employees working at the Central Florida facility
  • Be a publicly or privately held company
  • Be a for-profit business, a non-profit business, or a government entity
  • Have been a business for a minimum of one year

The workplace culture found at Marriott Vacations Worldwide contributes a lot to this recognition and their success as a company. They have shaped their company culture around “spirit to serve” and “culture of fun” and employ over 12,139 people. With the focus on creating a global family, they are able to provide incredible vacation experiences for their guests across all Marriott brands.

Marriott Vacations President and CEO Stephen P. Weisz stated:
