BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the 16th consecutive year, Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR) is named one of the "100 Best Companies to Work For" according to FORTUNE magazine. This distinction maintains Marriott's "All Star" status as one of only 13 companies that have appeared on every list since it launched in 1998. Marriott is the fifth largest company on the list, joining Google, Starbucks and six other companies with more than 50,000 employees. The full 2013 list is available at www.Fortune.com/BestCompanies.
"This recognition is very meaningful to our company and to our dedicated associates around the world," said David A. Rodriguez, Marriott's executive vice president and chief human resources officer. "Our business is all about providing opportunities and creating great experiences for people. To achieve this, we turn to a core value that has been the most significant driving force of our success: 'Put People First.' A great workplace generates the inspired customer service that builds customer loyalty and an emotional connection to our brands. It is the foundation of our company culture and it continues to be our guidepost to business success."
This year, the publication highlighted the long tenure of Marriott associates, stating that 10 percent of employees have worked with the company for 20 years or more. Marriott was also featured as a FORTUNE "Social Media Superstar" for the company's use of multiple social media channels, including Bill Marriott's blog (www.marriottonthemove.com) and the My Marriott Hotel game on Facebook.
Job seekers are invited to experience the company's award-winning culture by connecting through the Marriott Jobs and Careers Facebook and Weibo presences. The company is inviting current, former and prospective employees to share their personal career stories through the "Marriott, Where I belong" campaign and photo galleries and uploading their own photo on the Jobs and Careers Facebook page.
Marriott has long been recognized as a great place to work by several prominent publications, including Working Mother, DiversityInc, Black Enterprise and LATINA Style magazines, and for our social responsibility and sustainability successes by global organizations such as Ethisphere Institute, FTSE4Good and Climate Counts.

To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work® Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America: 259 firms participated in this year's survey. More than 277,000 employees at those companies responded to a survey created by the institute, a global research and consulting firm operating in 45 countries around the world. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third 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. After evaluations are completed, if news about a company comes to light that may significantly damage employees' faith in management, we may exclude it from the list. Any company that is at least five years old and has more than 1,000 U.S. employees is eligible. For more information on how to apply, visit: http://bit.ly/n8bVJ3.
