FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Playa Hotels & Resorts (NASDAQ:PLYA) was named one of the “Top Workplaces” in South Florida by the Sun Sentinel Media Group - ranking in the top 5 in its category. Playa Hotels & Resorts was also the only company so named in the hotel sector. The company was also recently in the news, for becoming the first and only dedicated company in the all-inclusive segment to become publicly traded.
Playa’s approach to the hospitality business perfectly aligns with the "Top Workplaces” survey, which focuses on several aspects of the workplace culture including alignment, execution and connection, among others. The award is based solely upon employee surveys, which are conducted by a third party to ensure validity, thus making it a true testament to how employees feel about a company.
“We pride ourselves on our personal connection with our associates and value their dedication to Playa. Our high employee retention rate is a result of not only the work environment that we have created, but the individuals that comprise it. Becoming one of the “Top Workplaces” in South Florida only further solidifies that our approach in the workplace resonates with associates,” said Dayna Blank, Vice President, Human Resources. “When an employee is joining the Playa team they are not just getting a job, they are also becoming part of a family.”
