Marriott International Soars to 4th Place in the Sunday Times "25 Best Big Companies to Work For" List

For the eighth consecutive year, Marriott International has been recognised as one of the “25 Best Big Companies to Work For” through The Sunday Times’ prestigious “Best Companies to Work For” listing,  ranking as the top hospitality company.  The list is a mark of distinction for companies across the UK and places Marriott International fourth on the list, jumping up from sixth place last year.

The Sunday Times recognised Marriott International for ensuring its associates are as well looked after as its guests. Marriott gained high scores for offering employees valuable experiences for the future and roles considered good for personal growth.

“We are absolutely delighted to have gained two places this year and to reach 4th in one of the most prestigious employment awards in the UK.  To be recognised for the eighth year is a tremendous accolade and affirmation of our commitment to support and motivate our people,” said Amy McPherson, President and Managing Director, Marriott International Europe.  “Our core value of ‘Putting People First’ is the cornerstone of our business and integral to its success and I am truly appreciative of all our associates’ constant enthusiasm, dedication and support.”

Marriott’s framework of associate personal development and discipline-specific training is tailored to each individual and opens the door to extensive opportunities around the world.  In 2014 Marriott launched its #PictureYourselfHere campaign designed to provide job seekers with a more inspiring job search experience and give them an authentic glimpse into what it is like to work at Marriott International. #PictureYourselfHere saw over 17,000 current employees share photos that captured their experiences interacting with their workplaces, workspaces and colleagues in an effort to attract the most talented job seekers in the industry.

The accolade joins a series of high profile honours to have recently been awarded to Marriott International including being ranked as the most admired hotel company on FORTUNE’s list of the ‘World’s Most Admired Companies’ and being named on their ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ list.
