Marriott International founder J. Willard Marriott advised managers to "Take care of your employees and they'll take care of your customers." Today, that philosophy remains the cornerstone of the company's culture. Marriott® is recognized time and again as a great place to work. We have a significantly higher level of associate engagement compared to both hospitality and Fortune 1000 benchmarks.
And our employees are encouraged to carry this philosophy to care for their communities. Working with charitable organizations, we work for the greater good through these signature issues:
- SHELTER AND FOOD
- READINESS FOR HOTEL CAREERS
- VITALITY OF CHILDREN
- EMBRACING DIVERSITY AND PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
To make the most significant impact, our social responsibility commitment blends corporate financial contributions with in-kind giving and the volunteer services of more than 150,000 employees around the world. In addition, many of our owners, franchisees, suppliers and guests are actively engaged in their communities, often working alongside us. As a good corporate citizen, Marriott is strengthening our communities throughout the world today – and for tomorrow.
