Atlanta Journal-Constitution recognizes family owned and operated hotel company among Atlanta’s best places to work
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution named Drury Hotels Company one of Atlanta’s Top Workplaces for 2017. The company was ranked in the Small Employer category on the newspaper’s annual list of top places to work in Atlanta.
"In a city full of great employers, it is an honor to be recognized by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,” said Chuck Drury, president and CEO of Drury Hotels. “Our No. 1 priority is to provide our guests with clean rooms and friendly service at an honest value. This wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated team members whose enthusiasm and passion, which is visible every day at our three properties throughout Atlanta and at every one of our more than 130 hotels across the country, helps us continue to grow. We are grateful for them and glad to know they enjoy working with us as well."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution partnered with survey firm Workplace Dynamics to compile their annual list. Atlanta-based employees of the company were surveyed and asked to gauge how they felt about their workplace. The survey sought responses to 24 statements covering seven factors ranging from pay and benefits to overall organizational health.
Drury Hotels employs more than 5,000 nationwide, and 105 in the Atlanta area. The company is one of the few remaining family-owned and operated hotel systems in the United States. This business model, coupled with its strong family values, is what makes Drury Hotels an exceptional employer where its team members can build strong careers.
