What is their secret?

Marriott Australia has been named the Best Employer in Australia and New Zealand in Aon Hewitt’s Best Employer Study,  the largest employee research project and market practice audit in the region.

Marriott Australia outperformed 19 accredited companies in the study, which included data from a survey of more than 100,000 employees from 125 organizations.  Marriott Australia is the first company in the hospitality sector ever to have received this honour.

“At Marriott International our associates are one of our greatest assets,” says Neeraj Chadha, Multi Property Vice President, Australia – Marriott International

“Our commitment to our Associates hails from the values established by our company’s founders, which have served us well and will continue to guide our growth into the future. Put simply – We put people first!”Stephen Hickey, Employee Engagement Lead at Aon Hewitt, is equally upbeat.


“All employers are confronted by the same set of economic circumstances, but our Best Employers are able to do a substantially better job of leading and managing the workforce to create high levels of engagement,” Stephen says.

“This mitigates many of the economic issues they face – leading to better results.”

The report is the most recent in a research series that was launched in 2001. Click on the following link for more: Best Employer Study. – Choose from 3,700 hotels worldwide. Book now.
