This is the first time I post an article on this ugly blog since 2 months ago. There were many things happened to me, most of them were great things, happiness.. and I enjoyed my times. One of the most remarkable events, to me, is to be part of Marriott family.
Why do I say “family” Because the company treats me like member of family. In some cases, they pamper associates like baby. They rally do take care us, because the Marriott philosophy is “Marriott takes care associate, then the associate will take care guests and finally, the guest will come back to the Marriott.”
Yes, it is just like a circle..! and not only that, Marriott put associates in a very important level, even in its core value. What are they?
Spirit to serve guests,
Spirit to serve associates,
...and spirit to serve communities.
I joined the company just recently but I can see how much they respect and appreciate me. You see, they put us on the second number, after the customers. What a great company..!
