5 best hotel companies to work for in 2020, according to Fortune – Business Insider

“No, workplace happiness is not a myth,” Fortune wrote in the introduction to its 23rd annual list of the best places to work in the United States, released this week.
This year, the top 100 companies span 14 industries ranging from education to real estate to hospitality. For the second year in a row, Hilton took the No. 1 spot. It is also the only non-tech company to top the list in 23 years.
Great Place to Work, a people analytics firm, determined the list based on its ongoing survey of employees at Great Place to Work certified companies. This year, over 4.1 million employees were surveyed. The survey consisted of 60 questions, 85% of which focused on employees’ “experiences of trust” and abilities to reach “their full human potential” while working for their organization. The remaining questions centered on employees’ daily experience of the company’s values, their ability to contribute new ideas, and the effectiveness of leaders. The total score weighed employee survey answers (75%) and the firm’s evaluation of company policies and programs (25%).
While Hilton leads the list, it’s not the only hotel company to do so. Five hotel companies made the list: Kimpton joined Hilton in the top 10, and Four Seasons and Marriott both made the list for the 23rd year in a row. 
In ascending order, here are the five best hotel companies to work for in 2020.
