Hyatt celebrates five years of recognition, rising to the top 10 companies this year

CHICAGO  – Hyatt has been named today to the 2018 FORTUNE “100 Best Companies to Work For®” list, an annual ranking of companies with outstanding workplace cultures according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. Hyatt has earned a spot on the prestigious list for five consecutive years, ranking at No. 9 this year and jumping 86 places since its original list debut in 2014.

These include trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie and workplace traits linked to innovation. The ranking accounted for the experiences of all employees including women, people of color, LGBT individuals, team members of various generations, and employees with disabilities.

“For more than 60 years, our workplace has been focused on caring for people, and that starts with our colleagues,” said Pete Sears, group president – Americas for Hyatt. “Rooted in a culture of empathy and understanding, our goal is to help Hyatt colleagues be their best, which in turn allows them to build genuine relationships with our guests and deliver unmatched experiences.”

Hyatt offers employees benefits and perks designed to allow employees to be their best, including:
