Computer World Names Marriott "Best Place to Work in IT"

Marriott has been recognized by IDG’s Computerworld as one of the “Best Places to Work in IT” for the third year in a row.  The lists are compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.

“Marriott’s culture is to ‘take care of our associates’ by creating a positive, rewarding work environment,” said Carl Wilson, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer.  “Our information technology leadership team is committed to helping our associates become business technologists as they advance their careers with Marriott.”

Earlier this year, Marriott’s One Yield revenue management system received CIO magazine’s “Grand Enterprise Value Award” and was recognized by Computerworld as a “Best in Class” technology.  In 2004, Marriott was named to CIO magazine’s CIO 100 for its agile use of technology and was the highest ranked hospitality and travel company on the 2004 InformationWeek 500 list, a ranking of the most innovative users of information technology in the United States.
