Marriott voted best employer to work for by MENA hoteliers
The Hotelier Middle East Salary Survey has voted in Marriott International as the hotel operator that hoteliers in the region want to work for the most
Marriott International is the hotel operator that MENA hoteliers would like to work for the most, according to the results of the Hotelier Middle East Salary Survey 2017.
For the first time, Marriott International has topped the list, with nearly 50% of our surveyed respondents wanting to work for the behemoth operator.
Last year, the company completed the acquisition of Starwood making it the owner of 30 brands worldwide – obviously a lucrative and interesting opportunity for hoteliers everywhere.
When contacted by Hotelier Middle East about this accolade, Marriott International president & CEO Middle East & Africa Alex Kyriakidis said: "We are delighted that Marriott International has been recognised in Hotelier’s Salary Survey as the best hotelier to work for and we are proud to receive recognition.
"Our commitment to 'people' is at the heart of everything we do and this result shows that our hotel teams continue to be true ambassadors to Marriott International."
He continued: "At Marriott International, our core values make us who we are, and as we integrate our teams, we will leverage our people-focused environment to our 65,000 associates across Middle East & Africa and remain focused on retaining and fostering talent."
