MERRILLVILLE, Ind., April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — White Lodging is proud to announce that it was honored with the Gallup Great Workplace Award for the second consecutive year. Only 40 companies from across the globe are designated with the honor in 2019, and White Lodging is the only U.S.-based hospitality company on the list. The award was created to recognize organizations for their extraordinary ability to create engaged workplace cultures that drive business outcomes.

«Each one of our 7,500+ associates made this possible, and we are honored to be recognized alongside so many respected companies for the second year in a row,» said Ken Barrett, president and CEO, Hospitality Management at White Lodging. «Creating an engaging workplace is a differentiator for White Lodging and a key component of delivering on our promise to our associates, which leads to superior guest service and operational excellence.»

Passion, innovation, growth and fun are the foundation of White Lodging’s culture and the company differentiates itself by offering competitive total rewards, an engaging workplace, world-class training and development and industry-leading opportunities in every aspect of the hospitality industry.

According to Gallup, Great Workplace Award winners are different because they look for what people really want from their careers and their lives – belonging, learning and growth, recognition, a great manager, and the opportunity to do what they do best every day – and then they find a way to give their employees just that. They invest in creating a culture that differentiates them from their competition by recruiting the best people, developing their teams and delighting their customers.

To be awarded, a panel of Gallup workplace experts evaluate qualified organizations and assess them against criteria established by one of the most comprehensive workplace studies. Only the top organizations selected gain entry into an elite group of companies that have received the Gallup Great Workplace Award.
