Fortune taps NRA members as best companies to work for

The National Restaurant Association applauded seven of its member companies for being named to Fortune magazine’s list of “100 Best Places to Work For” in 2014.

The restaurant/hospitality companies named to this year’s roster include Darden Restaurants, Marriott International, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Hyatt Hotels Corp., The Cheesecake Factory, Sheetz and American Express.

The Fortune survey culled the responses of more than 252,000 employees at 257 firms. Questions focused on the respondents’ attitudes toward management credibility, job satisfaction and camaraderie, as well as pay and benefit programs, hiring practices, internal communication, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts. Companies at least five years old with more than 1,000 U.S. employees were eligible to participate.

“We congratulate these deserving recipients for their commitment to promoting an ‘industry of opportunity’ for business, jobs and careers, and for creating employee-supportive workplaces that embody our industry’s spirit of hospitality,” said Dawn Sweeney, the NRA’s president and CEO.

David Rodriguez, Marriott’s executive vice president and chief human resources officer, said Marriott is proud of the recognition. “Our business is all about creating great experiences for people and providing opportunities to grow and achieve. As a hospitality company, how we support our associates directly correlates to superior customer service for our guests around the world. That is the foundation of our ‘people-first’ company culture and it continues to be our guidepost to business success.”

Sweeney noted that the National Restaurant Association’s 2014 Restaurant Industry Forecast projects that the restaurant industry will createmore than 1.3 million new jobs over the next decade.

“As we help develop the next generation of foodservice employees through initiatives such as our ProStart education program, we are excited to see the industry foster exciting and dynamic workplaces which promote lasting careers,” she said.
