Orlando, Fla. – August 22, 2016 — Marriott Vacations Worldwide (NYSE: VAC) was recently named one of Florida Trend’s “Best Companies To Work For In Florida.”

The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trend Magazine. One hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories. Marriott Vacations Worldwide ranked #21 in the large employer category and highest in the timeshare industry.

"Marriott Vacations Worldwide has always been dedicated to making the workplace gratifying for all associates around the globe,” said Stephen P. Weisz, president and chief executive officer. “We as a company understand the value of diversity and creativity within our workforce; we focus on the growth of our associates and believe our culture is the source of our greatness.”

To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

"Top companies provide excellent pay, health insurance, 401k plans, and other "hard" benefits, but they also offer the leadership and communications that encourage employees to participate in the organization's overall success," says Florida Trend Publisher Andy Corty.

“The Best Companies To Work For In Florida” program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.
