#13 Midsized Company

The AAA Four-Diamond Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa blends tropical elegance with a luxurious carefree experience on Florida's west coast.

As much as it is a great place to play, it's also a great place to work. And although the resort is part of a large corporation, employees say that it feels like "you are working with family."

One of Hyatt's standards is "people before policies," meaning that they consider the human side of things first. Consequently, there are many opportunities for employees to grow and develop. In the past year, the resort promoted 18 employees into management positions. As a company, more than 70% of management positions are filled internally. Emphasis is focused on training and developing the employees to provide them with the skills they need to become successful leaders in the hospitality industry.

The perks are world-class, too. In addition to a robust benefits package, employees enjoy free hotel rooms at Hyatt Hotels worldwide. This even includes a 50% discount in hotel restaurants.

As an award-winning resort, employees here are committed to serving their guests. They are also committed to serving the needs of the local area. The employees are encouraged to volunteer throughout the year, and the hotel has logged 500 hours of community involvement in the past year. The resort continues to donate to local charities, focusing on non-profit groups and is known by all employees as "Little Hotel — Big Heart."
