Hyatt named one of “Germany’s Best Employers” for 2014

By on March 14, 2014

We are proud to share that the hotels managed by Hyatt in Germany have been named by the Great Places to Work® Institute as one of “Germany’s Best Employers” for 2014.  The official awards ceremony was held on March 11, 2014 in Berlin, Germany.  Hyatt ranked 11 out of 30 in the category of companies with 501 – 2000 associates.

This is our inaugural appearance on the list in Germany, and comes after Hyatt Hotels were recently recognized as exceptional workplaces within the United States and the United Arab Emirates. The award is given in recognition of trustful, respectful and attractive workplace cultures.

To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, the Great Place to Work® Institute conducts the most extensive associate survey in corporate Germany. The survey asks questions related to the associate`s attitudes about management’s credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other part is based on responses to the institute’s Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts. The Great Place to Work® methodology has been used in over 6,000 companies in more than 45 countries on six continents in 2013. Thus, the Trust Index© and culture audit count to the most commonly used instruments to identify employee-oriented and attractive employers.  More information about the study can be found at:

We highly appreciate the commitment that every Hyatt associate demonstrates each day.  It is their commitment and passion that makes our hotels all over the world such a Great Place to Work®.  We sincerely thank all our colleagues in Germany!  Specifically, our colleagues at Hyatt Regency Cologne, Hyatt Regency Düsseldorf, Hyatt Regency Mainz, Park Hyatt Hamburg, Grand Hyatt Berlin and Hyatt Shared Services Center in Mainz.
