Hyatt: One of the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces

It’s official.  This morning, Great Place to Work® announced Hyatt as one of the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces. We couldn’t agree more and we’re thrilled to add this recognition to the growing list of accolades we have received for our best-in-class workplace culture. The best part? To earn a spot on this coveted list, companies have to be recognized by their associates as an organization that fosters creativity, trust and camaraderie. This award truly belongs to our colleagues, and is a true testament to the care they demonstrate for each other and our guests.

It’s hard to boil down Hyatt’s culture into one word, but, I would say that family is what anchors our organization. Our colleagues are the carriers of our culture. We’re fortunate that our guests can visit a Hyatt hotel in a tertiary city in China or a Hyatt hotel in the center of Paris, and there’s always something in common at our hotels – Hyatt colleagues and the way they behave and engage with our guests and each other. Our colleagues deliver our brands – it doesn’t matter the thread count or the paintings hanging in the halls, it’s the human interactions that define us.

We are proud of the family-oriented culture we’ve been building for more than five decades. And, regardless of where our colleagues are in the world, they feel that sense of family.

Thank you to all of our colleagues for helping us to earn this recognition. Your dedication to authentic hospitality demonstrates our shared values and creates a strong culture, making Hyatt one of the best places to work in the world.

We’re proud to feature some of Hyatt’s most caring doormen around the world. We welcome you to explore the unique characteristics of our colleagues in their different cultures and show you firsthand why they love what they do.
