Stories of Excellence

The Marriott Awards of Excellence program recognizes the “best of the best” at Marriott International. Established in 1987, the J. Willard Marriott Award of Excellence honors the company's finest associates for their achievement, character, dedication, effort and perseverance. Additionally, several group awards were created to honor teams, including the Alice S. Marriott Award for Community Service, the J.W. Marriott, Jr. Diversity Excellence Award, the Stephen Garff Marriott Award of Excellence for Culture and the Debbie Marriott Harrison TakeCare Award of Excellence. These teams are recognized for outstanding corporate citizenship, diversity and inclusion efforts, excellence in demonstrating the company’s core values and creating a culture of health and wellbeing.
