Marriott’s Growth in China and Brilliant HR Strategy

In 2007 Marriott opened its 3000th property: a luxurious 23-story, 588-room JW Marriott Hotel in Beijing China. By the opening of the 2008 Olympics, Marriott expected to operate 11 hotels in Beijing to help accommodate an estimated two million visitors and another 20 Marriott International-branded hotels were planned for China through the current year.

Diversity and Inclusion

Jimmy Paschall along with the “Committee of Excellence, (3)” a group formed in 2003 of mostly minority industry leaders, formed Marriott’s Diversity and Inclusion core values. At the heart of the initiative was the fact that Marriott was becoming more global every year. “More than 60 percent of [their] pipeline of full service rooms is located outside of North America. [They’re] opening 25 hotels within the next three years in China alone and doubling [their] hotel portfolio in the Middle East from 26 to 65 hotels by 2011. Because of this trend, the group thought that “it was becoming increasingly important for Marriott to become more inclusive and sensitive of various cultures outside of the U.S. (3)” Their current mission is to provide programs and resources that continue to reflect the international communities where they live and work.

This mission extends to every aspect of the business including customers, workforce, suppliers and vendors, franchisees and owners, and community relationships. Here
