Hyatt Hotels named as one of the best UK workplaces

Hyatt Hotels and Resorts has been named as the top-placed hospitality company by the Great Places to Work Institute.

The company, which employs 840 staff in the UK, was placed seventh in the list of 30 large employers.

Announced last night, the awards are given to businesses where employees enjoy the work they do, have complete trust in one another, take pride in their work and where they are encouraged to innovate.

Michael Gray, area director for Hyatt in the UK & Ireland, said the award reflected the company's people-focused culture where "associates" at the hotels operate like a family. "We believe, by taking care of our employees, guests are offered a better experience," he explained. "This is why Hyatt hotels have always been a great place to work."

"We encourage our associates to be innovative in every aspect of their work, and ensure we give autonomy to our individual hotels and their staff. This is a top priority for us in the United Kingdom, as we believe this helps our employees' personality shine through and ultimately leads to a more fulfilling career."

The hospitality companies in the 2014 UK Best Workplaces - Large list, together with their number of UK employees are:

7. Hyatt Hotels and Resorts (840)

10. McDonald's Restaurants (35,983)

18. Wyndham Worldwide - UK (1,224)
