White Lodging was named one of the 60 companies across the globe as a winner of the 2024 Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award. This is the fourth time White Lodging has earned the award and it currently employs more than 6,000 associates. White Lodging is the only U.S.-based hospitality company on this year’s list.

The award recognizes the most engaged workplace cultures in the world, which is based on Gallup’s data across more than 2 million employees, 54 industries and 96 countries. While only 33 percent of employees in the United States are engaged on average, seventy percent of employees at winning organizations like White Lodging are engaged.

“An engaged workplace is a thriving workplace,” said AJ Brow, Chief Human Resources Officer at White Lodging. “Our people-first approach has created an opportunity to improve our culture in line with our Associate Promise. This includes listening to our associates to learn how to get better, which among other items, has translated into the introduction of new associate benefits and an Associate Advocate Council, as well as the creation of a proprietary Career Journey platform that includes the tools, technology and resources to help internal career growth.”

“White Lodging’s commitment to creating environments where employees are listened to, valued and positioned to use their strengths every day is what sets it apart,” said Jon Clifton, Gallup Chief Executive Officer.

Gallup’s meta-analysis on team engagement and performance is the most comprehensive workplace study ever conducted. Its research shows that highly engaged organizations significantly outperform their peers in important business outcomes, including customer ratings, profitability, productivity, turnover, safety, quality, wellbeing and organizational citizenship.
