For the ninth consecutive year, Marriott Hotels of Canada, a subsidiary of Marriott International, has been recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Employers. Unlike other workplace studies currently published in the marketplace, Best Employers is the only national study where employees determine the best places to work in Canada. Marriott’s business is constantly evolving but the organization always stays true to their core values ; Putting people first , pursue excellence, embrace change, act with integrity and serve our world. Ranked 4th out of 50, Marriott Hotels of Canada is once again the highest-ranked hotel company in Canada on the list.
The primary requirement for being recognized as a Best Employer is creating and sustaining a highly engaged workforce, measured by asking employees at these organizations directly through a survey. According to Aon Hewitt’s definition, employees are engaged when they “say, stay and strive”: they speak positively about their employer to others, are committed to staying with their current employer, and are motivated by their organizations’ leaders, managers, culture and values to go “above and beyond” to contribute to business success.
