ORLANDO, Fla. – July 24, 2018 – 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 #17 in the large employer category, making it the highest-ranked Florida-based company in the vacation ownership industry.

“The development and well-being of our associates has always been one of our top priorities,” said Stephen P. Weisz, president and chief executive officer. “We are dedicated to creating an environment which encourages diversity, creativity and personal growth, and we are proud to say that our culture continues to be one of the sources of our greatness.”

To participate in the ranking, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation for at least one year.

The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
