Revealed: the best hotels for happy staff
Saturday 03 September 2011
If you're looking for smiley, happy staff when you check into a hotel, head to a Hyatt.
That's the guidance from one career website, which this week released a list of the happiest hotel staff in the US, naming Hyatt Hotels (the company behind Hyatt, Grand Hyatt and Andaz, among others), in first place.
CareerBliss spoke to thousands of staff members from major hotel chains, asking them how happy they were in their job - something that's easily visible to most travelers, standing on the other side of the desk.
After Hyatt, Marriott scored second place, followed by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, which operates destinations such as Disneyland in California and the World Disney World Resort in Florida, the world's largest theme park.
While Hyatt topped the rankings for benefits and career advancement, travelers may be interested to know that Marriott employees are the ones most likely to recommend their company to others.
