HYATT LISTED IN THE ‘TOP 15 GREAT PLACES TO WORK’ IN UAE FOR 2017

For the fourth consecutive year, Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) was named in the Top 15 Great Places to Work® (GPTW) in the UAE. The recognition is based on employees’ assessments of their jobs, and opportunities for training and support for work-life balance, among other factors.

“This recognition from GPTW is extremely encouraging and motivating, as it is the result of what we do everyday, caring for people so that they can be their best”, said Ramjan Bhugeloo, Regional VP, Human Resources, Southwest Asia, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts.

In addition, Hyatt has earned the #32 position in the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® in 2017, an annual ranking of companies with outstanding workplace cultures. Also being listed in the prestigious list for four successive years, this position jumped 15 places up since 2016.

“Our working culture is the artery between the company and our employees. We are committed to work-life balance, and a sense of care and belonging for our employees whom we fondly call the Hyatt Family. Our philosophy of caring for people so they can be the best version of themselves helps to foster authentic and meaningful connections, not just with each other but with our guests as well,” said Mark Hoplamazian, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

“The Great Place to Work® recognition is evidence of all that has been achieved till date. Making it to the list along with other global giants is an indication of triumph and accomplishment for all our Hyatt Family members. Listening, noticing others, extending a meaningful gesture can make all the difference in helping to be the best,” he added.

Great Place to Work® – a global research, training and consultancy firm that recognizes the best workplaces in over 50 countries worldwide – has revealed its seventh annual list of ‘Top Companies to Work For’ in the UAE. The 2016-2017 UAE list is the largest yet for Great Place to Work® and recognizes the top 24 companies with outstanding workplace cultures. They serve businesses, non-profits and government agencies.

In the UAE, Great Place to Work® conducted an extensive employee survey to pick the 100 Best Companies to Work for. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the results of the institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management’s credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs, and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.

Hyatt is consistently recognized as a leader in promoting a nurturing, positive and diverse workplace environment with policies and employee benefits that include:
Complimentary and discounted stays at Hyatt hotels around the world
Free or subsidized meals during work hours served in associate dining rooms
A wide variety of wellness programs and fitness activities, such as yoga, Zumba and kickboxing classes, at hotels to help associates stay energized and healthy
Flexible work schedules
Competitive wage and benefits package with paid holidays and vacation
A new 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
