Global Hyatt Corporation
CHICAGO - Hyatt has been named today to the 2019 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 six consecutive years, ranking No. 32 this year.

Rankings are based on survey feedback representing more than 4.3 million U.S. employees, with respondents rating their workplace culture on 60-plus elements. These include trust in managers, compensation, fairness, camaraderie and workplace traits linked to innovation.

"We are honored to be recognized for the sixth consecutive year as this award validates our dedicated efforts to care for our colleagues," said Malaika Myers, Hyatt's chief human resources officer. "We are committed to creating a workplace that is driven by our purpose - we care for people so they can be their best - because when our colleagues are at their best, it helps foster authentic and meaningful connections with our guests and customers."

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

  • Travel perks including complimentary and discounted stays at Hyatt hotels around the world
  • A global family assistance policy that provides employees with paid time off following the birth or adoption of a child as well as financial assistance for adoption
  • Access to skills training and world-class education opportunities through Saba Cloud
  • A diverse workplace, including many diversity business resource groups, creating an environment where all colleagues can be their genuine selves at work
  • Work-life benefits including wellbeing initiatives, on-site rest and relaxation, meditation lounges, and flexible schedules
  • Free or subsidized meals to hotel employees during work hours

Hyatt introduced landmark initiatives in 2018 designed to celebrate current colleagues and attract new talent. In early October, Hyatt announced RiseHY, a global commitment to hire 10,000 Opportunity Youth (people ages 16 to 24 who are neither in school nor working) by 2025. December 12th marked the first annual Global Day of Gratitude with the aim to unite colleagues, customers and guests through a single act of kindness. Every guest checking into a Hyatt-branded hotel and every Hyatt colleague around the globe was encouraged to send a postcard to someone for whom they are grateful, further realizing Hyatt's vision of a world of understanding and care.

The 2019 FORTUNE "100 Best Companies to Work For®" recognition adds to a growing list of workplace accolades Hyatt received in the past year, including:

Methodology
People analytics firm Great Place to Work determined the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For list and the FORTUNE Best Big Companies to Work For list by conducting America's largest ongoing annual workforce study, representing more than 4.3 million employees this year alone.

Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees report about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. We analyze these experiences relative to each organization's size, workforce make up, and what's typical in their industry and region.

The remaining pieces we consider include an assessment of all employees' daily experiences of the company's values, people's ability to contribute new ideas, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they're consistently experienced.

To be considered, companies submit an application documenting over 200 data points describing their HR programs and practices. Great Place to Work then conducts an anonymous survey of each company's workforce. To ensure surveys truly represent all employees, we require enough people in each organization to respond that results are accurate to a 95% confidence level and 5% margin of error or better. One part of the total score is based on our evaluation of company programs and policies, while three parts come from our analysis of employees' survey data.

We review any anomalies in survey responses, news and financial performance to ensure there aren't any extraordinary reasons to believe we couldn't trust a company's survey results. Companies need to employ at least 1,000 US employees to be considered for the 100 Best Companies list, and at least 100,000 US employees to be considered for the Best Big Companies to Work For list. Government agencies are not eligible.
